Success at Launch of Women Connect
Over 100 ladies attended our event last night to celebrate the launch of Women Connect.
The event, which took place at Johnstone House in Aberdeen, was a great success. Delegates enjoyed talks by our President, Lianne McPherson; Vice President of the Association of Scottish Businesswomen, Alison Henderson; Maria Coll of Cash for Kids and Women Connect committee member, Eileen Mauchline.
Lianne commented: “The response to our rebrand has been overwhelming and we are very excited for what’s to come. We have some great events lined up over the next 6 months and we hope to raise our profile and attract more members so that we can further invest in our network and support more women in business.”
Lianne, who is a solicitor with Ledingham Chalmers, has recently been appointed as President of Women Connect, along with new committee members: Rebecca Riddell, Kimberley Wilson, Jennifer Mann and Eileen Mauchline.
In addition to a new name and brand, we launched our new website yesterday, which details forthcoming events and promotes members through an online directory.
Our next event is on Tuesday 19th February, with speaker, Neil Butler from Companies House. For more information on Women Connect visit www.womenconnect.co.uk.
