Description

Women in the High Street

Achieving in Business and Civic Life

Special Guests Speakers

  • Dr Sarah Furness PhD - Lord Lieutenant of Rutland

  • Professor Emma Parker - Leicester University

  • Lucy Stephenson - County Council Cabinet Member and Bookshop Proprietor

Uppingham in Rutland is the birthplace of the Women in the High Street networking phenomenon which is now being promoted across market towns in the East Midlands. Hosted by the award winning Falcon Hotel, a beautifully refurbished 16th century coaching inn standing in the town’s market place, this next network event brings together women achievers from the civic, education and business worlds.

Our three principal speakers have a journey to share. Dr Furness is the first female Lord Lieutenant of Rutland and is now the Queens Representative in England’s smallest county. She can be found online at http://rutlandlordlieutenant.org

Dr Emma Parker SFHEA, Associate Professor in Post-War and Contemporary Literature, University of Leicester and Winner of the East Midlands Women’s Awards 2018 Outstanding Woman in Art, Media & Music Award 2018. https://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/english/people/emmaparker

Lucy Stephenson is one of six cabinet members at Rutland County Council and is currently Portfolio Holder for Transport and Highways. In business, she is currently transforming the traditional family bookshop into an internet phenomenon with such concepts as ‘book in a bag’. The ‘Rutland Bookshop’ can be found on the Uppingham ABC Trail at www.abctrail.uk
