Dame Margaret Kidd who qualified as an Advocate in 1923.  She claimed a number of “firsts” – the first woman to become a member of the Faculty of Advocates, the first female Advocate to appear before the House of Lords and before a Parliamentary Select Committee.  In 1948, she became the first British woman to be appointed King’s Counsel.

Have confidence in your own skill, experience and judgement.

What has been your proudest moment in your career so far?

When I passed my final exams and became a fully qualified Chartered Accountant.  It was the culmination of years of hard work.
