Chair for Diversity, FSB

Session Details

Keynote: Why Greater Diversity Leads to Greater Success

Keynote Theatre/ Astor Pavillion: 12.45pm - 13.15pm

As the only woman in Wales to run a motorcycle scrapyard, Helen Walbey is prime example of diversity in the workplace – launching and managing her own successful business in a very male-dominated industry. Recycle Scooters has been trading online since 2004 and now sells bike parts all over the world, with a number of major contracts for motorcycle dismantling.  

Find out why Helen is such a passionate believer that nobody should be held back on account of their gender, race, sexuality or disability, why successful businesses thrive on variety in the workforce and why she was recently appointed to head-up the FSB’s committee responsible for diversity policy.
