In episode four we speak with Kate Bright from UMBRA and find out what it’s like to work in a traditionally male industry. UMBRA International was set up by Kate in 2012 initially to represent and place elite female security professionals. This stemmed from having worked alongside Close Protection (CP) teams after having been CP trained herself during her time spent in family & private offices (www.umbrainternational.com). Female Close Protection is seen as a key asset in the private security management of the modern UHNWI lifestyle. A bit about SistrSistr’s, a dedicated platform for women to connect, share and learn.
On Sistr, professionals gain access to a network of qualified female experts covering a whole range of industries and skills, to help them grow their business.Sistrs can chat with other Sistrs via the platform on a variety of business topics, find out about and attend a carefully curated events schedule and choose to work together beyond the platform, hand-picking from a network of Sistrs to create their own advisory board and build out a team of elite female professionals to move their business forward. Qualified in their respective fields with proven evidence-based experience, Sistrs can chat, participate in forum discussions or commit to mentoring for just one hour per month which they do so with no expectations in return.
However, they’re aware that their consultancy can lead to forming beneficial relationships beyond the initial hour. Creating real opportunities Sistr to Sistr.
