The Female Economy


How can you benefit from the growing role played by women and from their ever-increasing spending power?

Isabella Lenarduzzi

The conclusions of the OECD report (2014) are clear: women do not only influence the market, they are the market.

According to the Harvard Business Review, women represent a growth market bigger than China and India combined – more than twice as big, in fact. Given than 83% of purchasing decisions are made by women, companies would be foolish to ignore this fabulous opportunity for future growth.

Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become Leaders?
