Bailey Fisher Hosts Women 4 Technology At House Of Lords
Bailey Fisher Executive Search welcomed 90 female business leaders in technology to the House of Lords on 23 June for a Women 4 Technology reception in aid of national children's charity Dreams Come True. The charity helps fulfil dreams of seriously and terminally ill children.
The hosting peer was Lord Erroll, and the event took place in the River Room, the private room of the Lord Speaker, with the Lord Speaker also in attendance.
The guest speakers were Martina King, CEO of Featurespace, Non-executive Director at Cineworld, Debenhams and Capita Group; Olivia Breen, Paralympic Medallist and Youth Ambassador for Dreams Come True, and Sally de la Bedouyare, Chair of the Trustees for Dreams Come True and Chief Executive of the PFRA.
The event was sponsored by EY, Field House Associates and Mills & Reeve.
Ann Fisher, Bailey Fisher, said: “It’s an interesting time for technology, and the news that the growth of England’s technology sector is outstripping California’s Silicon Valley is testament to the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit in the UK. The ladies who attended this event have all played a key role in this growth, yet unfortunately, still remain underrepresented.”
