As previously mentioned on this blog, the inaugural Women in IP launch event is taking place on Wednesday 2nd November 2016. We hope you will be able to join us at the event, which is kindly being hosted by IP Inclusive Charter signatory Norton Rose Fulbright.
The event comprises a lively panel discussion on “The Power of networking and mentoring in developing your career”, and will feature the following speakers:
Carol Arnold, IP Federation Immediate Past President (Chair);
Claire Baldock, Senior Partner at Boult Wade Tennant;
Penny Gilbert, Partner at Powell Gilbert;
Jean Hughes, Director Law Firms at CPA Global;
Parminder Lally, European Patent Attorney at Turnbull Lynch Intellectual Property;
Suzanne Oliver, Head of IP at ARM; and
Kate O’Rourke, Senior Counsel at Charles Russell Speechlys LLP and ITMA President.
After hearing from our eminent panellists about building support networks to develop your career, and hopefully some lively discussions with the audience, there will be time for some drinks and networking of our own.
This event is open to all working in the IP professions (including men!) and is free. You can join us for the discussion and networking (limited spaces), or just the networking event (over 100 spaces). We hope you can join us for a fun and inspirational afternoon. To register for the event, please visit the registration page on the Norton Rose Fulbright website.
We look forward to seeing many of you there!
