We had a full house at The Westbury Hotel yesterday evening for our final Young Businesswomen’s Forum of the summer! Attendees enjoyed a beautiful Veuve Clicquot reception, amazing company, inspirational panelists and of course, plenty of divine canapés!
As everyone took their seats they discovered an amazing luxury gift bag with some amazing treats, including a matte lipstick and gel liner from Inglot Cosmetics, A CND nail polish and weekly topcoat, a beautiful gift from Stella & Dot and a delicious chocolate treat from Lily O’Brien’s. Accompanying these amazing seat gifts, we also had a YBF exclusive My Shining Armour notebook for everyone!
Editor-in-chief Melanie Morris opened the evening with a big warm welcome, introducing the amazing panel of women set to share their stories over the course of the evening. First up on the IMAGE YBF couch was television presenter and Founder of Pure Results Bootcamp, Kathryn Thomas. Kathryn talked about how we all have our owns strengths and weaknesses, but everyone can have that lightbulb moment where they realise it’s time to make a change. She also advised us to focus not on problems, but on solutions. Next up to share their experiences was CEO of Siopaella, Ella de Guzman. Ella managed to keep the crowd laughing for a solid twenty minutes while advising us that it is always a good idea to invest in Chanel! Our final panelist of the evening was the amazing Jane Swarbrigg, CEO of Inglot Cosmetics. Jane left us with food for thought, urging us to use every experience, good or bad in order to benefit our careers.
Everyone left The Westbury hotel on a high, feeling motivated and ready to take on the world! Three lucky attendees walked away with a fabulous rose gold Ansley Co watch for the best Tweets of the evening, while two lucky winners left with a pair of tickets to the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby Day this Saturday!
