Meet the Foundation’s Voice: Katie Ledger

By September 12, 2013News, Rebecca Self

Katie LedgerThe Trestle Group Foundation is thrilled to announce that for our 7th Annual Event, former BBC journalist Katie Ledger will lead a panel of executives and entrepreneurs from recent Foundation programs.

If you’ve followed our work over the years, you’ll recognize Katie’s voice. She’s the narrator of every film we’ve produced. What most viewers don’t know is that Katie has been a supporter and participant in our work and growth from the very first partnership, when she trekked through Dhaka, Bangladesh with our founder, Dana Smith, to capture Luna Shamsuddoha’s story on film. Of the experience Katie says, “I have never seen such determination and courage by a female leader, in a traditionally male industry against a backdrop of such unrelenting poverty.”

“I believe business has the potential to solve much of the world’s suffering. Many female entrepreneurs instinctively understand this and use their social & emotional intelligence help people, profit and the planet.”

We’re pleased to introduce Katie to you in person September 18th at the Widder Hotel, downtown Zurich. For more details, please contact us.
