International Women’s Day Business Lunch

8 March, 2024 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

£35.00 – £39.00

Get ready for an unforgettable International Women’s Day extravaganza! We’re thrilled to announce that our upcoming annual lunch, held at the fabulous Balmer Lawn Hotel in Brockenhurst, will be buzzing with excitement!

Brace yourself for the enlightening panel of inspirational speakers, as we celebrate this year’s theme: Inspire Inclusion.

Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #InspireInclusion.

Together, let’s celebrate the achievements of local women in business, raise awareness about discrimination, break barriers and take action to drive gender parity in the New Forest!

We are delighted to welcome our keynote speaker, Nancy Hyne, the founder of True Horizon, a consultancy supporting brands to balance purpose and profit. Nancy started her career working as a Structural Design Engineer in London, before moving to live in Australia in 2007, which is where her sustainability journey began. After over 10 years’ working in corporate sustainability, Nancy founded True Horizon having identified a real need in the market – support for conscious brands that are ready to scale and striving to make a demonstrable and positive, impact. Nancy now runs her business from the beautiful New Forest, serving clients across the UK and further afield. Her mission is to support conscious brands do business in a better way to create a positive impact on people, planet and profit.

This event is hosted in collaboration with Southampton Business School at the University of Southampton.  We also welcome to this year’s Lunch the Finalists of the New Forest Brilliance in Businesses Award sponsored by the University of Southampton – for Young Person in Business.

You can look forward to networking over a drink on arrival, followed by a delicious two course lunch with guest speakers and a charity raffle.

This business lunch leaves plenty of time for discussion and networking. Come along to find out what other women in business are doing in 2024 and celebrate their achievements together on International Women’s Day!

As with all NFBP events, this event is open to everyone and is a not-for-profit celebration and supports the New Forest Brilliance in Business Awards Charity of the Year.

The ticket price includes a drink and canapés on arrival and your two course lunch. There is a cash bar available.
