At the Summit, Floella will share her story of coming to Britain from Trinidad as a schoolgirl. She experienced a huge culture shock – “I expected everyone to treat me kindly and with respect, but Britain was cold, unwelcoming, violent and bleak.” But she will explain how her resilience, humour, social conscience – and Playschool – have helped her become one of the most influential women in the UK.
