MT's '35 Under 35' network is a hit

It was a party not to be missed. Last night, MT's exclusive networking event for members of our '35 Women Under 35' network kicked off in style at the Aquascutum flagship store on London's Regent Street.

Baroness Denise Kingsmill and Aquascutum chief executive Kim Winser gave inspiring speeches about their experiences of life at the top of British business, then mingled with the successful young business women who had made the list previously, including Helena Boas of Bodas, online entrepreneur Shaa Wasmund, Tamara Salman of Liberty, Jennifer Harris of JRBH, Emma Barnes of SnowBooks, Charmaine Eggberry of RIM and Caroline Plumb of Fresh Minds.

Winser's frank speech about her own experience of getting ahead while combining life as a mother provided much food for thought. And the Baroness' words of advice sparked off a great deal of debate.

The conversation flowed, as did the champagne. Models showed off the fashion house's new collection, and one lucky party goer - Nicola Mendelsohn, deputy chairman of Grey London - won a £1,000 suit.

The fantastic success of this invitation-only evening proves that there is demand for a useful and fun forum for young business women, and MT was there to provide it. There are plans for more, so we'll keep you posted.
