International Women’s Day | Walpole’s Women in Luxury Programme

To mark International Women’s Day, Walpole today announces the first event of our 2019 Women in Luxury programme: How to Own the Room, with author Viv Groskop, taking place on Wednesday 27th March at Brown’s Hotel.

Wednesday 27th March 2019
8.30am – 10.15am

Brown’s Hotel, Albemarle St, Mayfair, London W1S 4BP

From the way Michelle Obama projects ‘happy high status’, and the power of J.K Rowling’s understated speaking style, to Virginia Woolf’s leisurely pacing and Oprah Winfrey’s mastery of inner conviction, what is it that our heroines do to make us sit up and listen – really listen – to their every word? And how can you achieve that impact in your own life? Viv Groskop has the answers.

Empowerment and confidence – particularly when having to speak in public – is one of the key essentials you’ve told us you need to progress in your career in luxury. This Walpole breakfast is designed to equip you with a toolbox of useful techniques that will have you exuding conviction and authority in the moments when you really need it.

For more brilliant room-owning insights, why not download Viv’s podcast ‘How to Own the Room’ to hear her interview Mary Beard, Mary Portas, Nigella Lawson and many other amazing women on their own tips and techniques.

Tickets for the breakfast on 27th March are £25 (plus eventbrite fees) and include a copy of How to Own the Room by Viv Groskop and a donation to the Duke of Edinburgh Awards Women in Business programme. Breakfast will also be served, of course, and we encourage you to bring someone from within your own business with whom you can share the experience after the event.

This is the first in a series of Walpole Women in Luxury events this year, designed to help boost the skills and networks of women working in the British luxury sector – look out for future events which include ‘Make your Ask’ a mini masterclass on effective negotiation from expert Nathalie Reynolds, and the Women in Luxury dinner.
