'It's important for women not to see themselves as victims' - Sally James

Meet the Moneysupermarket non-exec director at Inspiring Women in London on November 19.

Who has inspired you in business?

No one person. At various times I have been impressed and encouraged by successful business leaders who have given their time and helped others in their careers. Generosity towards those still making their way is a great virtue. 

What has been your biggest setback and how did you overcome it?

Completing my education and starting my career at a later point than others. There is another side to this: I avoided some family worries that might otherwise have arisen mid-career. 

What is the biggest challenge still facing women today and how should it be solved?

Balancing work and family. There is no easy solution, but it's important for women not to see themselves as victims and not to think that this is only a problem for women.
