  • Networking Lunch and Annual General Meeting

    25 April 2018 - 12:00pm
  • Event Description

    We’re delighted to be holding our Annual General Meeting at The Society of Advocates.

    Members and non-members alike are most welcome to join us for this free lunch & informal networking event along with the AGM formalities before finishing off with a brilliant inspirational talk by guest speaker Karin Ovari of Leadership & Conversational-IQ Coaching & Consulting.


    The AGM is fantastic opportunity to hear what Women Connect is all about, how the group has evolved over the past year and the new initiatives we’re launching this year. As always, Women Connect’s Committee really values your input and the feedback we’re getting from members and non-members is constantly influencing our plans to progress. Whilst only members can vote on the formalities (the Committee re-election and nominations etc), it’s vital that we know all our ladies’ thoughts and preferences as we continue to develop and we hope to see you there! If you take part in our feedback survey you'll have the chance to win a bottle of champagne!

    Guest speaker, Karin Ovari: What brings fear and a red dot together - a speakers journey

    Our special guest speaker Karin Ovari of Leadership & Conversational-IQ Coaching & Consulting will then close our event with her talk designed to inspire and motivate. Having recently experienced a long standing dream to stand on the red dot as a TEDx speaker, Karin will share the journey and what she learnt along the way. How she turned a terrifying thought in a comfortable and fun event. Becoming a TEDx speaker is both a milestone and turning point in confidence and motivation. And, it can be for you as well.

    Bio about our speaker: imagine a world where Managers are leading, Teams are performing and Safety is core value… changing tomorrow’s conversations today. With 30 years’ experience as a leader, in both large and small organisations and across a multitude of disciplines; from co-leading expeditions in Antarctica, working on offshore oil rigs, training in the corporate IT world and, even, once upon a time - nursing. And, having lived on 5 continents including Australia, Hong Kong, South America, South Africa and now the Highlands of Scotland, Karin comes to you with a broad and deep understanding of people, behaviours and communication styles. Karin is a person who celebrates what life has to offer, takes calculated risks, generates ideas and has always been a pioneer: in her coaching, in the breadth of industries she has been lucky enough to work in and in her general outlook on life. This is what Karin brings to you. What are your aspirations?
