Our much admired collaborators at Built by Us just launched the call for mentors and mentees for the 2020 Fluid programme.
  • If you ever wished someone would have shared their wisdom with you when you were less experienced
  • If you are looking to move forward but need someone to discuss your strategy with.
Mentoring is vital for the retention and development of talented individuals. It offers the support we need, outside the place of work, to face everyday and career challenges.

Join those of us who are part of the programme . APPLY

The livery companies of the City of London are an integral part of its history. They comprise both the capital’s ancient and modern trade associations and guilds and provide both charitable giving and networking opportunities such as this collaboration.

at LSE

Last Monday we visited the newest LSE building and had a wonderful time.

As well as a guided visit, our host and speaker, Lucy Vereenooghe, Operations Director at Chapmanbdsp and our Head of sustainability Deepika run a great presentation for us on the intricate environmental strategy and various design elements.

As this was a sold out event, Deepika will write a post shortly for those who could not join us



at Crawfords & co offices

The August members' meet up organised by our Deputy Chair Marianna and hosted by our corporate members Crawford & Co was lovely and we would like to thank all of those who joined us despite the high temperatures.

We thoroughly enjoyed listening to Lee Sadowski, MD at Craford & CO Uk and key note speaker Kath Moore, MD at Women into Construction. And the sunset over the city and Tower bridge was simply beautiful.

We will write a post but 




At the last Members' meet up, you suggested we should start sharing book recommendations within the network.

Today's recommendations come from our Chair, Cristina

( email your recommendations -including a little write up and a pic of you- to her at to be featured on the next newsletter)

Invisible Women by Caroline Criado is a fascinating book which will help you understand (through hard evidence and data) the everyday implications of a lack of diversity both in the teams providing solutions to everyday problems and the data they base those solutions on.

From nuisance such as (lack of) voice recognition or uncomfortable seat belts to more serious matters such as (lack of ) efficiency when diagnosing health conditions. 

Without wanting to give too much away, this book is full of insight everyone should be aware of.

The remarkable Mary Portas shares the challenges she has faced throughout her career, some of which are more than relatable, and explores the negative effects that an alpha culture can have in the workforce and the individual who is forced to suppress their uniqueness to fit in.

Mary also discusses ideas aimed to address everyday work/life challenges moving the business culture towards a kinder and more inclusive one in which employees can be themselves, thrive, learn form their mistakes and grow benefiting their companies and themselves.
