After the panel discussion, the Remarkable Women had a chance to catch up one to one with the young women and share advice first hand
We had the pleasure of hosting a Speed Networking event in partnership with Barbara Kasumu’s Visible Women Campaign, to inspire the next generation of young ladies. Here are some photos of the evening. Enjoy!
Along with ample supply of chocolate and cocktails we were hugely honored to have The Boxettes with world champion Beatboxer, Bellatrix perform for the crowd. We were also really lucky to have Laura London perform some of her magic tricks whilst mingling. What talented ladies :)
At the Malmaison London for our Remarkable Women event. It was an indulgent evening of Chocolate Martinis, chocolate making and tasting. The choc martinis were our personal favourites. Absolutely delicious. With thanks to My Chocolate for helping us to make the evening a special one.
Remarkable Women New Year Event
We’re very excited to be holding our next event very shortly, on 31st January. Can’t wait to have all the Remarkable Women in one room and really looking forward to the amazing entertainment we have in store
Jen Brister is a born comedian she regularly tours the UK and takes part in the Edinburgh Fringe festival each year. Originally Jen wanted to be an actress but realised she was always being drawn back to stand up and so made the decision to focus on it solely. She says that there a lots of great female comics out there but you only have to look at the panels on TV to see that it’s guys who get the most support. Here’s to no-one ever asking “are women funny” again!
Naomi Richards, the only life coach for children as young as 6 years old in the UK decided she wanted more work flexibility when she was expecting her first child and so trained as a life coach. She now runs her own business from home, has written a book and helps children and parents alike. She loves her Nokia Lumia because it effectively brings together her work and personal life.
Barbara is co-founder of Youth Charity Elevation Networks, the charity works with young people and ex-offenders to help them get a foot on the employment ladder. Barbara strongly believes that it doesn’t matter what your background is, this shouldn’t hinder your chances of getting a job. She uses her Nokia Lumia all the time as it offers her peace of mind when not in the office and the ability to multitask.
This edition of Stylist magazine: Naomi Richards and I were featured! Here’s my little bit of the mag. The text was edited by the magazine from a telephone interview which lasted a fair while as I do tend to blab on!
Ohmygod is this the one where you had to pick your ‘style’? YOU LOOK FABULOUS!!! :)
