The Ladies in Property Suffolk (LiPS) group is staging its next networking event on Tuesday, May 16, at Wherstead Park, Ipswich.

The event, the fifth since the group was formed in 2015, will feature presentations from Lesley Frost of Wherstead Park Events, Roy Emmerson from HeliDrone Surveys and Helen Rudd, founder of Prominent PR.

LiPS was created by Jacqueline Cumiskey, an employee at Concertus Design and Property Consultants.

All women working in the construction, property, land, and facilities management sector are welcome and invited to attend the event in May, which will run from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.

The event is free to attend and there will be light refreshments sponsored by HeliDrone surveys as well as time for networking and socialising. For more information contact Kara Thurkettle at Prominent PR by email to or call 01473 276126.

Jacqueline said: “In recent months, it has become extremely important that women in an industry dominated by men be given the opportunity to network and unite with other women to grow in this industry. We are so fortunate to be able to provide this to them and that women feel benefited by attending our events.”

The goal of LiPS is to provide regular networking events, promote roles in the industry to young female women, and support the national campaign #NotJustForBoys, which began in 2015.

Currently, the Office for National Statistics found that only 11 percent of the construction workforce are women.

“We want to continue to reach out to young women and help give them the courage to break from gender roles,” she added. “We cannot believe that we have come this far and look forward to sharing this evening with all who attend.”
