One of the best parts of my job is meeting likeminded women and last night, I sat down with some of the best female chefs, restaurant owners and pop-up queens at the About Time: About Tomorrow festival to discuss ‘making it’ in the food industry and our individual key to success.
I loved sitting alongside such brilliant women including Alex Hely-Hutchinson (26 Grains), Chantelle Nicholson (Tredwells), Anna Jones, Imogen Davis (Native), Adria Wu (Maple & Fitz), Rose Lloyd Owen (Peardrop London) and April Jackson (Three Little Birds). It was totally inspirational to hear them speak and with us all being at different stages and having been on different journeys to get to where we are it was great to hear from them.
The festival, running throughout February and March, features a hole host of female-led events including panel talks and masterclasses to encourage women to share, connect and create. Whether you’re thinking about launching your own company, changing lanes in your career, starting a solo venture or just want to be generally inspired by other women, About Tomorrow festival has an event for you.
