Lane End team gathers to mark International Women's Day 2019

The team at Lane End gathered today to mark International Women’s Day 2019. 

Our inspirational Chairperson, Teruko Iwanaga OBE, hosted a special drinks reception for all of our female employees. 

More than 25 of our female members of staff enjoyed Afternoon Tea, a Prosecco and Gin bar and goody bags, while listening to Teruko share some valuable insights and inspiration from her years of experience as a successful woman in business.

In a recent blog post Teruko wrote for Lane End, she offered words of advice for women in business: “If you are confident in what you are doing and work hard, anything is achievable,’.
Female workers are extremely important to the success of the business at Lane End, representing 67% of the team, some 80 percent of the conference organisers who we deal with on a day to day basis are also female. 

As well as a social event for our employees and an opportunity for our staff to network in a relaxed environment, today’s drinks reception also provided us with the chance to say thank you to our team and to Teruko for all of her hard work and dedication to Lane End Conference Centre.
