nspiring Women @ Laura Ashley The Tea Room


On 12th December, Mercure Sheffield Kenwood Hotel & Spa will welcome guests to the first Inspiring Women networking event – a brand new group event created by Sheffield Chamber.

From 12 noon until 2pm, guests will be welcomed into the elegant surroundings of the hotel’s Tea Room where they will be treated to a traditional Afternoon Tea along with a welcome drink on arrival. Sheffield Chamber is committed to supporting diversity in the workplace and this event will give business professionals across the city the chance to create new relationships with like-minded women.

The event’s key note speaker is Stella Steele, Director of Operations at Sheffield Chamber, who will tell guests her inspiring story of how she juggled her career with being a mum, overcoming a brain tumour, all while achieving a Master’s Degree in Employment Law. Stella is a passionate advocate of workplace equality and is the perfect speaker for this inaugural event.
