Last night I found myself in a room of over 200 women all there for the same thing, to meet their mentor. On the panel giving inspirational speeches and perfect examples of how to succeed as an entrepreneur were Sophie Cronish co founder of http://www.notonthehighstreet.com/, Jan Constantine founder and creator of http://www.janconstantine.com/, Cassandra Stavrou founder of http://www.propercorn.com/ and head speaker of the night was none other than Cherie Blair, Liverpudlian, founder of http://www.cherieblairfoundation.org/, barrister and former MP Tony Blairs wife.
The event was held in The Mayfair Hotel and began with sparkling wine and canapes (what else) to get the mood going and a bit of dutch encouragement to network amongst some talented, ambitious, curious and entrepreneurial women. I found myself lucky enough to have meet some lovely and interesting women with whom I will either remain in contact with or hope to meet again. There were women from all walks of life ranging from nurses to interior designers to video game creators.
This was a great event for women that are looking for someone to mentor them in their desired ambition and give advice along the way and where needed. Tickets to this event were £45 but totally worth it. It is advertised in London’s Stylist magazine, where they hold events several times a year. My suggestion to you if you are a woman that has business ambition, an idea that needs help getting of the ground or just looking for some direction or just want to mingle, this is an event recommended by the people for the people to help you, the people.
Keep an eye out and you never know, I might see you at the next event. Check out this link
