To our delight MIPIM Ladies ‘Pre-MIPIM’ networking event came up on our radar at the start of February, offering an evening of celebration last Tuesday (25th February 2020) and the exchange of valued MIPIM top tips.
Not only that, the evening hosted a panel of industry experts who attend MIPIM each year to share their own personal experiences and to discuss current trends within the construction industry.
Representing D4S as proud sponsors of the event were Amy Vaughan and Eva Norte, who revelled in having the chance to be in the presence of such inspiring women within our industry and the opportunity to grow our network in our home capital – and no better place to do that than Westminster City Hall.
The agenda included:
- A (warm) welcome from the Lord Mayor of Westminster herself, Councillor Ruth Bush
