“There are amazing women everywhere – those that can’t see them need to get better glasses!”, were among the words of the EU Commissioner for Competition, Margrethe Vestager, at EU Breakfast Debate that took place at the European Parliament, on Tuesday 5 December. The event was organized by European Network for Women in Leadership (WIL Europe), and moderated by Thaima Samman, WIL President. 

Proving that the Commissioner is right, the European Network for Women in Leadership gathered more than 60 leading professional women to this event, where they had the chance to learn firsthand about EU competition policies and to discuss, in an intimate and friendly atmosphere, with one of the most influential female leaders.

The event began with warm welcome delivered by Thaima Samman, WIL’s president and was followed by introductory words of Laura Batchelor, Director of Fipra, sponsor of the event and by Pervenche Berès, MEP and the hostess of our debate.

“I am not powerful, I exercise power", Margrethe Vestager delivered strong and inspiring messages for an audience ready to “exercise power” at every level!
