Meat Business Women networking event speaker list expanded

A new speaker has been added to the third Meat Business Women event. 

Taking place on Wednesday 25 May at Ironmongers’ Hall in London, the event will feature a talk by Alex Hamilton-Baily, partner at executive search company Odgers Berndtson. At the event, he will talk about opportunities for women wanting to develop careers, what it takes to be professionally successful, and share his insights.

Already announced for the networking event is Bonita Norris, the youngest person to reach both the summit of Everest and the North Pole.

Sponsored by Meat Trades Journal, the event will gather some of the most prominent women working in the meat industry. To book your place, click here.

Laura Ryan, event organiser and sector strategy director for AHDB Beef & Lamb, said: “After our last event we received some really encouraging feedback from delegates, and it demonstrated that there is a strong appetite for an outlet like this for women working right across the meat supply chain.

“The previous seminar was focused on opportunity – the opportunity for ensuring women can progress in this field, the opportunity to attract new female talent, and the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on retooling the supply chain to ensure it continues to grow. We, therefore, felt a logical follow-on from that was to look at some of the challenges women working in our industry face and how they can harness them to achieve their goals to add value to themselves and the industry in which they work.”
