Vivienne Cox CBE, in conversation with Kathy Harvey.

Reflections of her career and life.

Vivienne will be talking about her experience as the most senior woman in BP and her view of the energy industry today, and about the challenges of setting up the renewable energy business inside the company. She will give insights on the role of a non-executive Director, and the pleasure of working in a range of different companies and industries. She has two daughters, one still a teenager and the other a student in Oxford. No doubt that will come up as well.
