AWTE were delighted to partner with Management Today magazine and join their London Inspiring Women conference on the 19th of November.
Our members were offered a discount to attend the day that got everyone involved and the conversations covered a wide range of topics covered ranging from fashion to politics, journalism to medicine, hotels and catering to cars.
Joined by really interesting speakers and panelists including Lisa Scott from Gourmet Gadgetry, Alix Pryde from Vodaphone, Nikki King from Isuzu and Kim Winser, who is a great supporter of the AWTE, to name a few. They were all great, but for us the stand out speaker was actually the last of the day, Sharon White, the Chief Executive of Ofcom. Why was she our stand out? Easy…she has worked her way through the ranks by being fair and firm, driven and never losing sight of herself, her own values, self belief and family support. She stated, give the message, as hard as it may be, but be nice about it. Truly an inspirational lady, she certainly got our attention.
We met some fantastic delegates during the day as we had a small stand at the event. They were all interested to hear what AWTE are doing and we were happy to tell them. We really enjoyed our first step with Management Today; their event was informal, interactive and engaging with plenty of Q&A, personal stories and business insight from some real high-flyers. We want to ensure Travel and Tourism inspirational women get involved too,
We are really excited about an ongoing partnership with them and will of course keep you posted.
