Morrison, who also works as a mentor, will attend the 2017 Women20 event, part of the G20 summit of leading industrial nations being held in Berlin next month, and aimed at highlighting women’s economic empowerment, featuring top female leaders, entrepreneurs and scientists from each of the G20 countries.

Australian-born Morrison, who is chairwoman of the British Association of Women Entrepreneurs in Scotland, said she is “delighted” to be representing the UK at what she says is “a great forum to meet and exchange expertise with like-minded women in different areas of business, as well as leaders of NGOs and scientists”.
