Ladies who love to network are urged to act fast and book their places for one of the most popular events of the season.
All the essential ingredients are in the bag for another fabulous Business Women’s Link Summer Lunch at The Petwood Hotel in Woodhall Spa. The date to note is July 4, 2019.
Every year people seem to start booking their places earlier and there’s little wonder, because there’s plenty to enjoy.
This year BWL members and guests will be hearing from inspirational speaker Carol Shakespeare-Eyley, who is actually the mum of one BWL’s Focus Group members Jessica Eyley.
Carol fought alongside members of the Worcester Diocese as part of the Movement of the Ordination of Women’s (MOW) drive to get equality for females within the clergy – a battle which led to the ordination of the first woman bishop in the Church of England in 2014.
Carol’s determination also shone through when the one-time nursery nurse held on tight to her dream of becoming a teacher – even though she left school with few O-levels. She went on to become a respected headmistress, transformed a failing school into a top primary school then later became an OFSTED inspector and the chair of Governors for several Leicestershire schools.
Her achievements are all the more impressive when you learn that she had two daughters and often battled illnesses, which led to her being hospitalised.
The Summer Lunch will also feature a delicious three-course meal, a bumper raffle – in aid of Lincolnshire YMCA – and time to network.
Tickets cost £45 for guests (£40 for BWL members).
