WEConnect Conference 2011

WEConnect ran a number of fantastic events last week; Meet the Corporate Member – The Marriott Hotel, the WEConnect International Awards for Europe – hosted by Ernst & Young – wonderful venue, hospitality and networking evening.

And of course, the conference! Again a wonderful venue – held a Clifford Chance’s building in Canary Wharf with a stunning view across London from the 30th Floor. A really excellent mix of WEB’s and corporates. The speakers were all inspiring, Amanda Burton – Clifford Chance – giving some really good tips about what buyers look for and her charming story about the women chained to railings! Fay Sharpe – Zibrand – wow – great presentation, full of drive and passion, sharing lots of great ideas about the brand and team building. There was a Dragons Den – excellent panel and, such brave WEB’s! Hats off to them all – brilliant!

Met some really interesting people and linked up with some really exciting corporates too. So thanks to everyone for a great job on the event and Shirley Cooper will be wonderful as the new Executive Director Europe.
