Networking sessions are fun, informal and friendly
An informal group for businesswomen to network, have fun, and support charity is planning its next meeting.
Ladies Time 2 Chatt is designed specifically for professional women in Newark.
The latest meeting was hosted by Chattertons solicitors and wealth management at their Newark office — when some four-legged friends looking for their forever home took centre stage.
Chattertons, which has eight branches, in Newark and across Lincolnshire, has chosen the RSPCA as its charity of the year for 2019.
So guests at the Ladies Time 2 Chatt meeting were greeted by two kittens and a dog in need of adoption.
Partner Amanda Voakes said: “Time 2 Chatt events are really growing in popularity, with more and more local women coming together to network and have fun.
“Lola the dog and the two gorgeous kittens certainly pulled on everyone’s heartstrings, but there was also a serious side, reminding us all that adoption could really change an animal’s life.
“We have worked hard to create an informal, fun and friendly place for professional women to meet like-minded women, while also learning about and supporting charitable causes, and finding out how we can improve our community.”
Guests had tea and cream cakes before taking part in a craft session, learning how to make fabric owl key rings.
Previous activities have included dough moulding and chocolate tasting.
Samantha Gabbitass, a solicitor and training officer at Chattertons, said: “The Time 2 Chatt event is such a simple idea, but it works. Each event includes a fun element, but it’s also a great opportunity to network with like-minded women, and learn about a local charity.”
Staff from Chattertons also took the opportunity to chat to visitors about the work they do involving wealth management matters such as investments, inheritance tax planning, pension and retirement planning.
