As part of HeadBox Connect, last month we held a breakfast panel at Farmers and Fletchers in The City. We invited 3 extremely successful female entrepreneurs down to the beautiful venue in Barbican to talk all about their individual journeys as entrepreneurs, what they are doing for women in their industries and what advice they would give to women who want to start their own company. Pip Jamieson, CEO and Founder of the Dots, Anna Tsyupko, CEO and co-founder of Paybase and Prue Freeman, Director at Timmy Green, spoke to Ann-Marie Rossiter from HeadBox about a new generation of women in business.
The day began nice and early and Farmers and Fletchers venue was prepped and ready for the event, our Guests were welcomed on the main floor where they were able to network in the bright Space flooded with natural light. The simple yet stylish decor means this Space provides the ideal backdrop for your corporate events, breakfast briefings and meetings, our Guests definitely thought so too! Whatever your event, you will find the purpose built, state-of-the-art and flexible Space a hit with your Guests. Our corporate attendees enjoyed some fabulous food provided by Farmers and Fletchers who are proud to provide exceptional British food that is sourced ethically and sustainably. Our Guests were able to enjoy a breakfast spread that included, fresh croissants and pastries, green smoothies, yoghurt and muesli and sausages and bacon which is sourced directly from a Farm that works closely with Farmers and Fletchers in the city to produce the highest quality meat and catering. Farmers and Fletchers determination to use sustainable, high quality food is a real selling point of the venue and means that when you hire this stunning Space you are also doing your bit for British Farming and sustainability.
For the main event the Guests moved downstairs into The Great Hall, a large events Space that is decorated with a simplistic, stylish touch that can be used for a range of events, The Great Hall can do anything from private dining to networking and meetings. Guests can make their way from the reception area to the main hall via the elegant spiral staircase down into a small reception area before entering The Great Hall.
We then had a fantastic panel event with exceptional sound and lighting provided by the venue. Our panelists gave passionate stories about their completely unique journeys as entrepreneurs and business women, how they balance being CEOs and founders with their personal lives and exactly what they do to support the women in their own businesses.
Thank you to Farmers and Fletchers in The City for hosting this wonderful venue and we can’t recommend the Space enough for corporate events.
