Women in the City wins Global Excellence Award
The inaugural Lunch was held in November 2003 when WIC's founder, Gwen Rhys, decided to bring together a "small" group of women to share experiences, hear an inspirational speaker and have some fun! The word spread and a"small" group of some 200 women attended.
Over 350 men and women attended the 9th Annual Celebration Lunch on 25 November 2009.
2012 will be the 10th Anniversary Lunch and we're planning something extra special to mark the occasion.
The Judges of this prestigious award said:
“I never thought that a business could be launched from a lunch but I have been proved wrong. Of course, it was meticulously planned but from the first ladies’ lunch held in 2003 in the City of London when 200 professional women turned up, Women in the City has become a top annual attraction. It now includes a prestigious Awards Ceremony to celebrate women’s achievements. It’s a lunch that has everything – mingle time, an inspirational speaker, a goody bag and even food and wine. This year 350 people attended including some men. Whatever next!”
