Heels of Steel by Vanessa VallelyVanessa Vallely is the founder of leading women’s network and website, WeAreTheCity and job board CareersCity, serving an audience of over 70,000 London City women. She also co-founded the City-wide diversity network, The Network of Networks, which includes the heads of women’s networks from 40 FTSE firms.

Vanessa has had an extensive 25 year career in Banking and Finance in London and is a qualified career coach. She has won various recognition awards such as Women’s Champion for Women in Banking & Finance, TIAW’s Top 100 Global Women, Financial News Top 100 & Brummells Top 30 Inspiring Women. She was a wonderful keynote speaker at The NextWomen’s November 2012 London Pitch Evening.

In this article, Mary Juetten, Founder and CEO of Traklight.com reviews Vanessa's new book "Heels of Steel", which was released on 25th September. The book tracks Vanessa's trials and tribulations from the day she arrived in the City aged 15 and worked her way up to C-suite, providing transparent insight into the world of corporate women and sharing Vanessa's tips and practical advice, based on her real life experiences.

British Author Vanessa Vallely had me at HEELS. Not only did I have the pleasure of reading HEELS of STEEL, she graciously offered to Skype with me despite an 8-hour time difference.

When the book arrived, I skipped over the introduction and the table of contents and dove into her story. Her scrappy upbringing and her City career seemed almost surreal and to later find out that she cut out some of the more difficult portions of her life made it even more amazing.
