Ladies in property group planning a second event

Building, construction and the allied trades may be seen as a male preserve but that is changing.

There are lots of professions in the property world where women are making great strides.

Ladies in Property Suffolk (LiPS) are hosting a second networking event for female property professionals across Suffolk.

After the success of the first event back in June, which was attended by over 60 women, the second event will be held on Wednesday November 18.

The LiPS group was set up by Nadine Coleman and Jacqueline Cumiskey to provide a networking opportunity where women can form strategic business relationships and friendships.

Anyone working across roles in Land, Property, Construction and Facilities Management is welcome to attend the event, which will be held at the iconic Waterfront Building, University Campus Suffolk (UCS), from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.

The evening offers the chance to hear from some inspirational female speakers, opportunities to network and enjoy some canapés and light refreshment.

After a canapés and drinks reception, there will be speeches from three women with inspiring advice and stories to share.

The speakers include Fiona Hotston-Moore from Ensors, who will give a talk on social media, Rosanne Kilbourn from Menta who will talk on professional development and Suzanne Nolan of UCS who will address gender stereotyping in industry.

Organiser Nadine Coleman said, “We were thrilled with the success of our first Ladies in Property Suffolk (LiPS) and by popular demand, we are back with a second event. It proved hugely popular with the attendees the first time round and the turn-out was fantastic, it’s brilliant to see women in the sector gathering to support each other and celebrate our industry.”

Jacqueline Cumiskey, who also organised the event, added: “We set up the group because we wanted to organise a networking opportunity where ladies in the industry can gather together, learn from each other and forge new relationships. We’re absolutely delighted that it’s fulfilling the function that we intended it for.”

The role of the LiPS group is to provide regular networking events, and to promote roles in the industry to young female students, supporting the national campaign #notjustforboys

The event is free to attend and is being sponsored by University Campus Suffolk, Castons, Vertas, Artizan and Prominent PR.
