You know you’ve made it when there’s a song written about you and Ms Ita Buttrose certainly deserves one! Cold Chisel said it best; “How could I not believe what Ita tells me to?”
Ita Buttrose is a household name here in Oz but my lovely dollfaces to the north may have never heard of her. She’s an author, journalist and TV personality and was the founding editor of Cleo magazine which brought us all the nude male centrefold – can I get an AMEN?! A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of having breakfast with Ita (and 150 other gals) and I was so inspired to hear her speak. She really has fabulous insights into being a woman in business and having to deal with a male dominated world.
This Sunday I raise my copy of Cleo and cup of tea and toast Ita, and incredibly fierce and savvy businesswoman and all round role model for all women!
