Thursday, 11 October, 2012

Thanks to those who were able to  join and support us at Conference. It was a pleasure to see so manyWomen2Win supporters at our two events.   Thanks to generous sponsorship from the ABI (Association of British Insurers) , we hosted a drinks reception on Sunday 7 th October, with Guests of Honour  Rt Hon Theresa May MP, the Rt Hon Maria Miller MP and Chloe Smith MP as speakers.  The crowd  fizzed with energy and attendees  enjoyed the opportunity to  meet one another and mingle with parliamentarians  and other conference attendees.  We also hosted a session "How to Get Selected” on Monday 8th  with a distinguished panel including Guy Opperman MP, Andrew Griffiths MP, Sarah Newton MP, Carlyn Chisholm, Head of Candidates, Christine Emmett, Candidate for Corby and Marina Yannakoudakis, MEP and chaired by Baroness Jenkin.  The event was kindly hosted by Conservative Home in their marquee. It proved so  popular that we were filled to capacity.  Attendees had the opportunity to hear about the selection process from a range of different viewpoints, as well as tips on the application process.
