Regular readers of my blog will remember that I recently went to India to attend the Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network Event (DWEN) in June, and was impressed with the breadth and depth of the female entrepreneurial talent in attendance.

While I was there I conducted a number of interviews with some amazing women, one of whom was Deborah Harrigan, Executive Director – Australia & NZ Consumer, Small and Medium Business at Dell, the company that sponsored the event.

We talked  about the role of women entrepreneurs, strategic giving by companies big and small, and emerging trends that will alter the operating landscape for small and medium businesses.
