Women in Hospitality Networking Event

Key Industry Speakers – Q & A Session – Drinks and Canapés

A year on from our hugely successful Women in Hospitality event, this is an opportunity to discuss the current situation and share best practice with fellow Institute members and non-members.

Men and Women are warmly invited to attend.

Guest Speakers

  • Brenda Collin, Managing Director, Preferred Hotels
  • Zoe Watts MIH, Commercial Director, Vacherin
  • Adina Savut, Director of Groups, Conference & Events Sales, The Waldorf Hilton

“It’s so important to encourage and support those who have chosen to work in the hospitality industry. Women in hospitality continues to be a hot topic that I care passionately about.” Brenda Collin

“There are so many fantastic opportunities for women in our industry, and we need to push for an open-minded and flexible approach from employers, regardless of age, gender or personal circumstances. We also need to encourage women (and men) to think about how they can make the opportunities work for them – Hospitality offers such a diverse range of roles, careers can evolve over time and, with an appetite for self-development and support from an employer, the sky’s the limit!” Zoe Watts MIH

“Research shows that companies with diverse leadership are more successful.  Research also shows that cultural or individual bias – conscious or otherwise – may often prevent women from being promoted to top levels of management.” Adina Savut

Feedback from last year’s event

I thoroughly enjoyed the event and the conversation it seems to have started.  It’s fair to say that there is still a lot to explore and debate regarding this topic.” – Gabrielle Le Roux AIH, Program Developer, The Service Academy, BaxterStorey

I really enjoyed the Women in Hospitality event last night and met some lovely and interesting ladies.” – Trisha Bennett FIH, Communications Director, Hospitality Assured
