Friday 8th March saw the annual, global celebration of women with events held to mark International Women’s Day 2019.
We don’t need an excuse to celebrate great women here at Clementine HQ, but in honour of the day we attended a women in drinks event at Carousel London hosted by our friends at Wonderworks Communications.
We networked with a few of the great and good from the drinks industry including powerhouses Sandrae Lawrence – Editor of The Cocktail Lovers , Hannah Sharman-Cox – Founder and Managing Director of DrinkUp London, Claire Warner – Managing Director of Aecorn Aperitifs and Stephanie Jordan – Drinking Out Loud Consultancy & CEO Avallen Spirits. A panel discussion explored the issues surrounding women in the drinks industry today with tips on well-being.
We were delighted to be joined by some of our female clients at an event that was both inspiring and informative, held in a beautiful location with well-made cocktails (made by an all-female bar team we might add) and delicious canapés.
As we continue to make our mark on the drinks industry, with many director level positions at big companies now taken by women, there are still challenges we face but most importantly, as Claire Warner stated, it starts with brand ‘me’. Don’t be afraid to put yourself first and look after your well-being, whilst carving out your business or career in an exciting and ever-changing industry.
