The path to achievement never runs smooth. You will face several bumps along the way. Life is like climbing mountains - and you never what's around the corner!

Funke Abimbola is a multi award winning lawyer, leader and diversity campaigner. As the most senior black lawyer working within the UK's pharmaceutical industry, her path to becoming a top lawyer has not been a smooth one. She bucked the family trend, choosing law over medicine and has been climbing mountains ever since. This talk highlights both the challenges along the way and how she has overcome them.
