International Women's Day 2023 with micebook

An exclusive L&D event series

Around 100 female leaders and the next generation of leaders from across the UK events industry came together to uncover ‘A New Path to Leadership’ at micebook’s International Women’s Day 2023 event on Monday.

Hosted at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London, the event included an empowering keynote session by Lorraine Heggessey, a trailblazing television producer, media consultant and business leader and the first female controller of BBC1, in partnership with Speakers Corner. More incredible speakers included Emma Abson PHD (Sheffield Hallam University), young tech entrepreneur Manila Di Giovanni (in partnership with Visit Monaco Convention Bureau), Jess Charles, Health & wellbeing expert Lavina Mehta MBE and Kate Munday, Professional Storyteller & Coach at Out The Box Speakers and Creative Business Partner at Google.

The event was expertly hosted by Samme Allen, founder and CEO of conferenceemcees.com, who got our audience to create a wall of experience – from less than two years’ experience, right up to 32 years’ experience in the events industry, overall, the audience represented an impressive 1490 years of experience between them.
