Astrid Arnold

Carpenter and Company Director

What's my talk about?

I share what it took to choose and stick at working in a predominantly male environment and how persistence, flexibility, determination and thinking outside the box made it possible. I share my analysis of why the construction industry has so few women working in it and why women are actually very well equipped for working in this sector. I also share what we at TouchWood South West are doing to address this imbalance.
