I had the honour of an invite to an Inspiring Women event at the RSC this week – an evening of Champagne, canapes, networking and theatre.
Organised by the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Arden Hotel and Pentlands Accountants, the event took place between The Other Place, where nails were painted, pink Champagne was quaffed and business cards exchanged, and the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, for a special performance of The Merry Wives of Windsor, which was broadcast live to cinemas on the night.
The show’s director, the brilliant Fiona Laird, introduced the special women-only event. Her words on the small stage at The Other Place were as powerful as the don’t-mess-with-us message on the much bigger stage at the RST.
Women from across the country came to Stratford-upon-Avon for this special Inspiring Women event at the RSC.
Sure, we don’t need our nails a dazzling shade of coral pink or our drinks served in flutes to a soundtrack of girl-power pop to network and inspire each other. But it helps.
