Catherine Wines on breaking what it means to be a 'strong' woman

FinTech power-house and co-founder of WorldRemit, Catherine Wines is the star of this week's video where she chats to me about the life of a co-founder, and what it really takes to thrive in a male-dominated industry. Since her diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in late 2018, she's talked openly about how cancer impacted her life and the lives of those around her.

I'm extremely sad to share that Catherine lost her fight with cancer on 14 November, but there's so much we can all learn from her strength and I hope this video can inspire others in the same way that chatting to her has inspired me. 

In this series, I sit down with six women who challenge their industries and break the social norm. From breaking stereotype and age-old traditions to women's' bodies and advertising, these six women talk about their journeys.
