Dear Participant, 
We write to invite you to take part in a research examining  female leadership traits and styles that foster innovative work behaviors  by completing the attached survey. 
As the business environment becomes more turbulent, complex and dynamic; effective entrepreneurial leadership is increasingly viewed as a source of competitive advantage for business success. However, very little is about the process of leading innovation effectively especially in relation to female leaders. We seek to investigate this issue with the view of supporting businesses to grow and survive in the complex ever changing business environment.  
This project is being carried out by Tolulope Busola Oluwafemi , a PhD student of Bangor Business School, Bangor University, under the supervision of Professor Konstantinos Nikolopoulos and Dr Siwan Mitcehlmore.

We understand that you are extremely busy; therefore, we shall try to take up as little of your time as possible. All that is required of you is to dedicate approximately 10 minutes of your time to answer a few questions.  Your response is very important to the success of this research. Any information provided by you would be treated as strictly confidential such that you would not be identified in any reports or outputs produced from this research.
 Should you require questions, or need additional information about this work please contact us at abp65a@bangor.ac.uk. Please leave your contact details should you require a copy of the study.

Thank you in advance for your participation in the research. We look forward to hearing from you.
On behalf of the Project Team
Yours sincerely,
Dr Siwan Mitchelmore
