As I write to you this month I’m putting together the final touches to my introduction to the WICT UK conference, which as you know is taking place on International Women’s Day, 8 March. The IWD theme of Gender Parity is a great topic as it’s now going to take a huge 117 years until we reach this! I know that I’m not prepared to wait that long – are you? If you haven’t signed up please do so now in order that you take part.
We have secured an amazing line up of speakers who include Priti Patel the Employment Minister, to Simon Fanshawe, writer and broadcaster. We will also be welcoming the WICT US President, Maria Brennan who is coming over for our event.
Sponsored by Virgin Media and compèred by Guto Harri, MD of External Communications at Liberty Global, the day will be entertaining, educational and thought provoking. This is also another great opportunity to network with your colleagues across our industry. We are also supporting the HeforShe campaign and would encourage all WICT members to bring a guest for free; all your male colleagues are very welcome! Just register your guest on the registration link so we can cater for them.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
