Speakers are revealed for event connecting women

A community that helps celebrate and connect working women is to hold its first event in Glasgow.

AllBright will be hosting its second annual festival for working women in July, called FoundHER. Its much anticipated return will take place in three UK locations this year – London, Manchester and for the first time, Glasgow.

FoundHER is a five day celebration including events, talks and workshops covering topics such as careers, modern feminism and philanthropy, politics and current affairs, health and wellbeing, with plenty of live entertainment, delicious food and drink, unique networking opportunities and access to amazing female talent on offer.

It’s an opportunity for corporates and founders alike to meet like-minded women to inspire, encourage and collaborate around a range of unique events and stellar speakers.

FoundHER will take place at EY’s Glasgow location on Thursday 12 July. Over 1500 tickets will be available starting at £10 per ticket.

This year’s speakers and panel hosts at the FoundHer Festival in Glasgow include:

Head of Business Gateway Edinburgh and member of the Scottish Govt Women in Business Action Group, Susan Harkins; Employment partner at Dentons Law firm and non executive director of Hibernian Football Club,Amanda Jones; director and owner of award-winning boutique spa The Chamomile Sanctuary in Edinburgh and Ambassador for Women’s Enterprise Scotland, Justine Mitchell; serial entrepreneur and chair of Women’s Enterprise Scotland, Lynne Cadehead; founder of Get Market Fit and winner of Scotland’s Most Inspiring Business Person of 2017 award, Vicky Brock; chief operating officer at Women’s Enterprise Scotland, Carolyn Currie; founder of women’s bikewear firm Findra, Alex Feechan; Executive Director at JP Morgan Chase & Co, Lynsey Campbell; founder of software company Appointedd and board member of Scotland Women in Technology (SWiT); Leah Hutcheon; systems engineer and founder of the award-winning PCL Group, Jeanette Forbes.

Last year’s FoundHER featured speakers such as Samantha Cameron, Kelly Hoppen, Myleene Klass, Kate Thornton, Trinny Woodall and Martha Lane-Fox and was attended by over 1000 women.

It was also the impetus for AllBright to launch the very first female-only members’ club for working women in the UK which opened in Bloomsbury in London on International Women’s Day March 8.

Debbie Wosskow, co-founder of AllBright, said: ‘AllBright’s FoundHER festival is back this summer by popular demand and this year it will be bigger and better than before. If you are a woman who wants to thrive and grow in your career or business, enjoys learning and meeting some of the UK’s top female business talent, then this is the festival for you.’
