Business Women's Week: Natasha Walker, taking on the challenge

As Business Women's Week comes to an end, we finish the week off with our Regional Manager for the South, a wonder woman who constantly puts 110% effort into everything she does. Natasha Walker manages our sites in the South, you will see her on a daily basis with our customers, organising events and meeting with centre managers. On top of this, you can find her getting in stuck into several BizSpace charity events!

We are very pleased to welcome Natasha Walker and celebrate her success at BizSpace and in her career so far.

What was your dream growing up?

I wanted to be a Chef. I absolutely love food and entertaining, so I thought being a chef would enable me to do this. I am not a Chef as I fell in love with the serviced and managed workspace industry very early on in my career. Even though I did not train as a chef, I can cook up a feast fit for a king!

Who do you look up to?

I look up to my Aunty Sheila. As a kid, I thought she was Diana Ross in secret but discovered in my teens that she was not. My aunt has done well for herself and has a very successful property management company, which she started many years ago. She is determined and a very hard worker and I have always admired her for that.

What is your superpower?

I believe I have a way with people, enabling me to work with people from all backgrounds.

What's been the toughest challenge in your career?

My current position has thrown so many new and different challenges it has been a thought-provoking but great experience so far.

What would you say to your 16-year-old self?

You do not know as much as you think!

What advice would you give to young women today?

My advice would be the world is your oyster. That sounds cliche I know, but and there are so many opportunities available to you. Make the most of every learning opportunity and continue to learn throughout your life.

You need to work long and hard to strive your goals. Stay focused and determined as you will get there, eventually.

A massive thank you to Natasha Walker and all our wonder women of BizSpace, all are true inspirations.

As we bring business women's week to a close we celebrate the hard working, businesswomen in the world. Over the last few years as a society, we are beginning to acknowledge the motivated, driven and inspirational women of the business world. With some women striving for greatness at the highest level. With the likes of Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo, proves that if we work hard, and strive for greatness we can achieve anything.

Good luck to all future women in business!
