Another Ladies in Property Suffolk networking group networking event takes place in October.

The event, which offers the chance to meet like-minded professionals and hear from interesting speakers, is being held on Tuesday October 9 at Concertus Design & Property Consultants at their new offices in Friars Bridge Road Ipswich from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.

Following on from the positive feedback received from a survey of attendees, the evening will follow a similar format to previous events with light refreshments during an informal networking session, followed by three speakers.

The speakers are Nicola Booth, first female regional chair of Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) East Anglia, Matthew Smith, BIM manager at Concertus with Cherry Beesley, who owns Simply C Photography. Founding member Jac Cumiskey said: “We’re thrilled to be hosting our eighth event at the new Concertus office, a proud sponsor of Ladies in Property Suffolk.

“It has become extremely important that women in an industry dominated by men be given the opportunity to network and unite with other women”.
