City Ladies Networking Launches Sell Out Event in Paris

A company set up by three entrepreneurs from the North East of England to support women in business in Newcastle and London has expanded to a new city, Paris.

City Ladies Networking has launched its events and support to English speaking women at Canopy by Hilton Trocadero, in the French capital this week. With stunning views of the Eiffel Tower, the ladies met on the rooftop space to enjoy pastries and coffee.

Hosted by Anna Kalbasko, who lives and works in Paris, the launch event was also attended by founders Natalie Turner, Sophie Milliken and Antonia Brindle.

Stephanie Gelot gave a talk at the inaugural event on being a Parisian superwoman in business. Giving a round up of her background to becoming a coach, facilitator and regenerative leader she motivated and inspired the attendees to enjoy living, working and learning in the French capital. Attendees included an internationally diverse and eclectic mix of nationalities and professions, all of whom conversed in English.

Supported by NatWest and Hilton in the U.K., the organisation holds monthly breakfast meets in each city, which feature a guest speaker covering a hot topic, along with time to network and promote their business. Lynn Proud, at Hilton Gateshead Newcastle, the first Hilton to support City Ladies Networking said:

“City Ladies Networking is an incredibly popular event held at our hotel so when there was the opportunity to reach new ladies in France, I was wholly supportive. It is great to see the event has gone so well.”

The next event is held on February 13th with tickets available at eventbrite. Cara Cunniff, an English business coach for leaders, who attended and lives in Paris said:

“As an English speaking woman who lives in Paris, human and emotional connection with other entrepreneurs is crucial and has been very much missing until now. As well as the foundational support we can give each other, we all entered into conversations that gave us energy and motivation . You also never know who you are going to meet, we all felt there was potential to find our next client or collaboration.”
