Leaders of Today Inspire Leaders of Tomorrow

If you are walking through town today – you might spot something new, something slightly out of the ordinary, something that you’ll want to stop and take notice of – Sane Seven’s new exhibition ‘Beyond the Desk’

Our CEO Maggie O’Carroll has been honoured and profiled by Sane Seven’s creative project ‘Beyond the Desk’ – and is standing tall amongst city leaders to inspire the leaders of tomorrow.

Today Sane Seven announced the first instalment of their two part project launching in Liverpool in line with the International Festival of Business. 34 business leaders have collaborated with Sane Seven in this project to inspire the leaders of tomorrow. Some 30,000 visitors, as well as city residents and guests will be treated to an outdoor photography installation showcasing unusual portraits of 34 of the North West’s most inspirational and successful business minds.

‘Beyond the Desk’ uses unique portraiture to break the traditional stereotypes we associate with business leaders aiming to bridge the gap between established leaders, aspiring entrepreneurs and young people entering the world of business. Some of the other portraits included in the project include Sir Terry Leahy, Steve Morgan, Judy Halewood, Sir Michael Bibby, Peter Moore, Ian Ayre and many other respected individuals.

Portrait Photographer and one half creative due Sane Seven – Viktorija Grigorjevaite is a long-time friend of The Women’s Organisation. We’ve seen her business grow across the years, but one thing has always remained a constant – Viktorija’s incredible talent for creating mesmerising photography.
The incredible Viktorija

We are overwhelmed with the end result!  The portrait that Sane Seven have created imaginatively captures Maggie in a stunning way; as an opener of doors, a true campaigner for equality and a leader for today and tomorrow.

‘Beyond the Desk’ will be exhibited from June 17th to July 5th in Liverpool ONE near the Hilton Hotel and outside Liverpool Lime Street – Maggie’s portrait is positioned outside Lime Street. 

We do have a photo of Maggie's portrait - but we want you to all head on down to Lime Street to see it in person! It's something to behold, they are an incredible collection of portraits. Tweet us @TheWomensOrg when you see them!
