FIRE WOMAN- Josephine Reynolds blazing a trail to firefighting history.
This is the inspirational true story of a determined young woman in 1982 using sheer grit to assert her independence. She applies for the local fire service, unwittingly becoming a media star, being revered by feminists, and despised by the completely male-dominated and testosterone-fuelled world of the brigade. With the eyes of the world watching, what will happen to her as she faces constant judgements and pressures to prove herself in a culture that insists that this is a man's job.
Now using those life experiences she talks about the importance of good teamwork, in particular trust, good conflict, being committed, taking ownership (accountability) and achieving the result.
Speaking topics include: Inspiration, Organisational Culture, Equality, Gender & Inclusion, The Importance of good teamwork, Creating Change.
"Diving head first into a career in the last bastion of masculinity, firefighting. The world back in a Thatcher led England in 1983 was much smaller and for a woman entering the fire service much tougher."
