Having come so far in the fight for equality and being on the same level as their male counterparts in every aspect, the number of women in business development is still not enough. One of the best aspects of business development is the opportunity to network and meet many interesting people from around the world. Business development along with networking includes finding valuable long-term business contacts, hearing advice from peers and experts, sharing knowledge and experiences, all with an emphasis on making connections and collaboration.
Pushing forward this cause, especially for women, recently, the 30th Ladiesfund Power Lunch took place which focused on a dynamic networking session featuring incredible women leaders from different organisations and backgrounds from the field of art, fashion, media, education, performance and even politics.
Talking about the impact of this launch, Tara Uzra Dawood, president of Ladiesfund, shared, “We continue to transform the way power spaces and networking at the highest level take place. We’re placing women front row and centre in these conversations, having voice and respect from the get-go. We make sure to involve male champions for gender inclusion, diversity and women empowerment. With this thirtieth lunch, we further grow this pool as agents of change and the industries represented.”
Abdullah Hussain Haroon, former ambassador to the UN, who headlined the lunch talked about the importance of networking, “Delighted to headline this lunch and address an impressive group of change makers who are truly committed to the betterment of our nation. It was wonderful spending time with old friends as well as meeting some very interesting new people.”
The lunch featured a very interesting group of accomplished people who genuinely care for Pakistan. “I enjoyed sharing my experience at this forum about curating the Pakistani Pavillon at the Dubai Expo, as well as the response and impact it has made,” said Noorjehan Bilgrami, curator of the Pakistan Pavilion at the Dubai Expo.
“It was great to appreciate and applaud all the diversified talent and plan ahead with positivity,” said Pomme Gohar, CEO of Phenomena. “From hearing about the secret of the success of the Dubai Expo by Noorjehan Bilgrami to Hussian Haroon's insight into the power of politics and the future, the conversation was exhilarating!”
The lunch turned out to be super successful where everyone had a great time and enjoyed good food along with good company.
