A Must Read "Bloody Brilliant Women"

This article is dedicated to one of my daughters. Her precious gift and thoughtfulness will remain with me all my life.

During a school trip to the UK while looking for a gift to bring back, the book “Bloody Brilliant Women” attracted her full attention. Reading the title, she thought of her mother and she knew that I would enjoy reading it! (I would like to add that this book is a read for both women and men!)

I kept this precious reading for a family holiday. I am fully captivated by the content. A big thanks to you my dear daughter, this is a great read.
In this book, there is so much to learn from what women have achieved throughout British history. Not only is this book a reminder of these women who we knew very little or nothing about, but also a thought/reminder on what can still be achieved in our modern day life. 

A special reminder also to those other brilliant women throughout history who lived in other regions/ countries worldwide.  We have a lot to learn from them.

A special thought also to my other dear daughter. Both you and your sister are part of modern day women and I know that you will both accomplish great things. 

A big thanks to the author of this book “Cathy Newman”.  Your book is a beautifully written history of women, what they achieved and how they lived. 

If you are looking for an interesting read, I recommend that you look no further than “Bloody Brilliant Women by Cathy Newman”.  A book you will want to read again and again!

Reader Recommendations

"I enjoy reading your blog as it gives very useful information to people like me – working on restarting his/her professional life after a period of expatriation. Your useful tips help to deal with this situation in a stress-free mode and help to methodically face few challenges. I highly recommend Brid’s articles to anyone who knows they have to do something to find a new job, but they don’t know how to do it”.

"During a period of professional reorientation where I needed financing, I used the advice of Brid to write my Skills-Based CV. Thanks to her advice, my Skills-Based CV convinced the financing organization. I highly recommend her articles".

"As an expat myself coming to the end of my current contract and planning to return home to Ireland, I found the article "La Perle Rare", particularly helpful. I will soon be searching for job opportunities. Undoubtedly, I do have to distinguish myself from the crowd. Following the suggestions and advice given by Brid, with self-reflection I discovered that I have an abundance of highly developed soft skills. These are skills I had taken for granted for so long never thinking they would highlight my uniqueness to a potential employer. In the past, my focus was on my qualifications and work experience. Although this focus is important, there is room for self-promotion too. Now, I shall forge ahead with a renewed sense of myself and the confidence to promote my other strengths in interviews. Thank you, Brid. I strongly recommend Brid’s blog to expats who find themselves seeking new job opportunities “. Fiona

Je recommande vivement Brid pour son enthousiasme, son dynamisme et son professionnalisme". Frédéric
