Whispering “white rabbit” in a beautifully renovated church is not something I had ever imagined doing….but I did it with pleasure to gain admission to the launch of the magnificent networking club The Sorority www.thesorority.org
Lisa Tse , who owns award winning design agency www.lisatse.com, is the fabulous founder of The Sorority and it was a joy to see greeting her founding members and guests after many months of hard work and organisation.
I remember meeting Lisa, in Mews on Mayfair, for a cup of tea one grey afternoon last year. We discussed her vision to celebrate the excellence of women and their passion and integrity both in business and personally. I was immediately enraptured and wanted to do anything to help bring this to life. I needn’t have worried - Lisa had it all in hand!
The inaugural ceremony introduced the founding members both to each other and to invited guests. In the presence of Her Royal Highness The Sultanah of Pahang founding members were introduced to the audience, welcomed to The Sorority and presented with their own stunning silver insignia brooch.
I took great pleasure in hosting the event and learning more about members such as shoe designer Beatrix Ong, newscaster Katie Derham, film director Gurinder Chadha and the wonderful Kathryn Grieg to name just a few!
After the ceremony the evening continued with champagne and delicious canapés and of course the most important part – meeting each other and networking.
The Sorority is open for membership http://www.thesorority.org/membership.asp and already is flooded with applications. I am certainly glad I got my in early!
