Inspiring in Spring

I was delighted (and surprised) to receive an invitation to attend ‘a special event to celebrate the inspiring women connected to Manchester’. This event was held on International Women’s Day (March 8th 2016) in the Whitworth Hall, The University of Manchester.

You might even find me amongst this set of photos as I feature in several – although by the look of me I clearly wasn’t trying to be caught on camera, but hey ho …..

The event included an inspiring panel-led debate followed by a chance to meet and mingle with interesting women (and men). It was a great opportunity for some ‘time out’ to consider how to ‘change the world’ for the better – not just a better future for women – but also for men, families, kids, society, education! Serious talk but not taking ourselves too seriously on this occasion. Northern women ‘down to earth’ and aiming big!

It was an enjoyable and though-provoking event – and a theme which A Tree of Life Sciences naturally supports in its aspirations to inform, improve and INSPIRE!
