It’s a treat to spend Women’s Day in the company of these inspiring women and hear their stories, says Jules Lewis Gibson, the new President and Creative Director of Florists’ Review. The sisterhood is strong in the floral industry. As a passionate advocate for women in business, I’m inspired daily by the amazingly talented women in this field and the generosity of spirit and offering of knowledge.
You can learn about these inspirational women, what they love about working with flowers, what attracted them to the industry, what women they are inspired by, how it is to work in a men-dominated business and much more on the show.
