Brunel - Women For the Future Network launches on 3rd December with Roisin Issacs, successful entrepreneur and “Secret Millionaire” as key notes speaker. Open to all female staff, students and researchers as well as external business women and entrepreneurs. The network aims to provide a forum to forge significant relationships, collaborations and develop and extend your networks.

From humble roots as the oldest child in a large Irish family to philanthropist and entrepreneur, the heart-warming star of TV's "Secret Millionaire" Brunel Alumna Roisin Issacs will be sharing her story of her extraordinary life journey. Moving to England to pursue a career in nursing a fascinating future lay ahead for the little girl from Ireland's war torn streets.

Roisin will share the highs and lows on the road to her success with tips on what works, what doesn't and sometimes how it’s simply just a matter of plain hard graft! Roisin will also share from the heart her insightful passion to help those less fortunate than herself and spill the beans on how a council house kid became a "Secret Millionaire!"

Roisin Issacs commented on the significance of bringing such a network to Brunel’s female cohort, “The Brunel Women of the Future network provides the perfect platform for career women to communicate with other enlightened women. The value of this network is immeasurable in the long and the short term of a woman’s career.” The network will provide Brunel students a great chance to build their network, meet like-minded people and build relationships beyond the university to shape a successful career after graduation. It will also give external business women a chance to connect with the university and learn more about what Brunel can do for small businesses, including placements & internships and research and funding opportunities.
