How women can thrive through all seasons, with Baroness Ruth Rogers CBE, co-founder of The River Cafe

As women, how on earth is it possible to build a business and grow with it over decades — whilst raising a family, weathering the storms of life and remaining inspired, motivated and engaged throughout?

Baroness Ruth Rogers OBE is someone who has done just that and today, her pioneering Michelin starred restaurant The River Cafe remains one of the most in-demand culinary institutions in London, 36 years after she led a food revolution.

In this episode, Ruth shares stories of discovering her passion for seasonal ingredients, the progression of female chefs she’s witnessed, and how far we still have to go. She even reveals her top tips for building the foundations of a strong business and a truly happy workforce.

It’s a conversation which is both inspiring and heartbreaking in equal measure, and one that speaks volumes of the legacy that Ruth has created.
