Lionhearted Leadership

Baroness Uddin and Helene Martin Gee hosted a roundtable and reception with the Global White Lion Protection Trust. 

After an elegant welcome from Lady Uddin we heard an extraordinary talk from its founder Linda Tucker on 'Lionhearted Leadership: Transforming the Patriarchy, the Lioness Way'.

In conversation with Jill Pay, we learned something of Linda's amazing story and her work to save the white lion. 

Inspired by her incredible encounter with a pride of lions and how being rescued by a Tsonga medicine woman completely changed Linda's life.

The roundtable was followed by a sustainable buffet reception with local and artisan foods.

Business NOT as Usual with Addidi and Deploy

The Women’s Smoking Room of the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel was a wonderful venue for the Addidi and Deploy ‘Business NOT as Usual’ charity event in support of Reverse Rett.

We began with a fascinating a panel discussion on female enterprise with Anna Sofat giving an insight into how and why she set up Addidi, the ‘Voice of Women’s Wealth’. 

Anna outlined the unique way Addidi works to manage women’s wealth and its recent Manifesto to 'change the culture of wealth'. We then heard from an engaging panel sharing their stories of business success in fashion and beyond.

The  fashion show itself featured fabulous sustainable designs from Deploy, a real pioneer in sustainable fashion.

The fabulous May Fair Hotel was the venue again this year for the Coram Beanstalk Benefit. 

Guests were greeted with Champagne and delicious canap├ęs while browsing the silent auction lots, including two artworks and luxury experiences including tea at the House of Lords donated by Baroness Jenkin.
