Alan Sugar's co-star in The Apprentice, Karren Brady, is to give the keynote speech at the opening of the city's Enterprise Week in the City Hotel on March 4th.
Ms. Brady has an estimated net worth of £82million generated from her sale of Birmingham Football Club, which she took on as Managing Director at the age of 23, and is the current Vice Chairman of West Ham Football Club.
Ms. Brady will take to the podium at the City Hotel as keynote speaker on the opening day of the week-long programme of events being run by Derry City Council, targeting local companies keen to boost performance over the coming year. It is hoped that business people here will gain a few valuable insights from one of the UK's most influential women, who has scooped numerous awards for her impressive track record on the boards of several major organisations.
