Ashley is a very talented entrepreneur and inspiring speaker that I met at TEDx Wan Chai. She was discussing the importance of women in Chinese entrepreneurship as well as the underappreciated aspects of women role models in ex-Soviet Russia.

I attended a lunch briefing by Ashley recently and she was fun and engaging. Great insight as well. I am fascinated with the New Retail concept and how it will affect and change the retail environment globally in the near future.
