Women in Business offers a great opportunity to network with women from different sectors whilst enjoying a delicious 2 course meal and listening to the inspirational journey of a highly motivated CEO; Clair Mowbray from The National College of High Speed Rail.
Clair's talk will focus on her experience as a project manager, both as an employee and running her own business, together with the experience of NCHSR as a project.
Clair is passionate about promoting the opportunities that the high speed rail sector affords to a wide range of learners through an innovative teaching model.
Over the last four years Clair has worked on the set up and delivery of the National College for High Speed Rail. She has seen the project go from an aspiration to a operating College. Half way through the project she took the decision to put herself forward to be the Chief Executive. Clair wanted to not only see the College open but to lead it to become a world-class, high-quality and cutting edge education provider.
Clair was appointed as Chief Executive, National College for High Speed Rail, in September 2016. Her involvement with the National College started in 2014 when she joined HS2 Ltd to lead on its development. Since then she has been instrumental in taking the project from concept through to its current stage of development working across stakeholders to achieve buy-in and support for the project.
Clair’s career has been varied working in both the public and private sector. Her roles have included being a Management Consultant at PwC, Project Director at Tribal Education and running her own business. The common thread throughout has been working with organisations dedicated to supporting people through skills development. Her wide experience is an excellent platform for successfully implementing the National College, given its clear mandate to closely link skills development with the economy.
