All images were sourced via appropriate Creative Commons licences but if you think differently or believe any image has been misappropriated here, do the right thing and let me know so I can do something about it. On a separate and personal note, while knocking this preso together I was bothered by the lack of evident women journalists who could equally inspire these five insights. If you can offer any suggestions (with where I can find available images), I’ be d chuffed to update this preso, ‘ os I sure as heck had a challenge trying to find c anything / anyone suitable!
