Last week the ladies of Cole AD attended an event hosted by A&M Scotland at the Blythswood Square Hotel to celebrate International Women’s Day, 8th March 2017. They were treated to a champagne reception, a two-course lunch and great entertainment from host, Edward Reid.
Speeches from June Lynch, MD of Laurie Ross Insurance and Alison McGregor, CEO of HSBC Group in Scotland, gave everyone an insight into the bold moments throughout their lives and careers.
There were many ways to donate to the charity throughout the afternoon. You could make an offer in the silent auction, buy raffle tickets, enter into a game of heads or tails, in which our very own Julie was in the final 5, but sadly didn’t win! And there was an exciting bidding war at the end of the event where the final offer made was £500 for 2 tickets to an Ed Sheeran concert with a night in the Grand Central Hotel and breakfast (Ed not included).
The event was filled with lots of positivity, motivational moments, many references to Wonder Woman and Charlie’s Angels, and lots of dancing!
All in all it was an amazing and inspiring event.
Could you name a woman who is important in society?
