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 Sarah Furness (pictured) is the first female Lord Lieutenant of Rutland and is now the Queen's 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

Register for the event and join Women in the High Street  for an inspiring and enlightening evening. Delegate fee is £20 (which includes a light buffet). To ensure adequate opportunity for participation, this event is limited to 35 delegates.
