In conversation

Yes She Can: Ruth Davidson in conversation with Andrew Neil

Join Ruth Davidson, leader of the Scottish Conservatives, in conversation with Andrew Neil to discuss her eagerly anticipated book Yes She Can, which will explore the life lessons learned by some of the world’s most powerful women.

This very personal book is based on interviews conducted with the women who have inspired Ruth Davidson – women from all backgrounds, cultures and professions. Through interviews conducted by Ruth herself these women deliver their stories, life lessons and insights into how they got to where they are today. Interwoven with Ruth’s own story and interpretations, this is a book to inspire women through the generations to come. A copy of Yes She Can is included in the ticket price.
