City Women and Motherhood

Andrea Catherwood talks to senior women in the City about how they have combined motherhood with a high-flying career.

Andrea Catherwood chose to give up her role as a foreign correspondent once she had children. She switched to the position of news anchor; trading Baghdad for the safety of the studio felt to her like a sensible move.

For this series of 'One to One', we talk to senior women in the City about how they combine motherhood with their high flying careers. Brenda Trenowden is a managing director at ANZ bank in London's financial hub Canary Wharf. How does she manage a full time, high pressured job that takes up evenings as well?
