Women Mean Business

Women empowering women – what could be more inspiring? The latest in our NHEHS Alumnae Networking Series focusing on entrepreneurship was a great success. The panel conversation was brilliantly curated by Olivia Stamp (NHEHS 2012) of Entrepreneur First and we heard motivating words from Meg Cope (NHEHS 1987) founder of Zaccys,  Aaisha Dadral (NHEHS 2005) – Founder of  CRAVE, Amy Lynch (NHEHS 2000) – Founder of  Ginger & Moore and Katie Tyndale (NHEHS 1988) Founder of  Bee Green Wraps  and Great Little Rewards, as they outlined how and why they set up their own businesses.

We heard how failures make you stronger and all about the challenges of working independently; “The best experiences are when things don’t go to plan, because then it’s an opportunity to learn.” (Meg Cope)

After the panel discussion and some Q&As there was a reception in the atrium with drinks and canapes, where the alumnae had the opportunity to network with each other. Animated discussions followed and fantastic new connections made.

Alumnae Christmas Wreath Workshop

It was fantastic to celebrate the start of the festive season with alumnae in the art rooms for our annual Christmas Wreath Workshop. We welcomed NHEHS leavers from 1989, 1995, 1999, 2000, 2002 and 2005 for an evening of merriment, mulled wine, mince pies and some intense crafting! The resulting wreaths were beautiful.
