To celebrate International Women’s Day, we hosted our first ever Do Good, Feel Great with Leiho event! We had a blast catching up with familiar faces, connecting with new ones and enjoying all that the evening had to offer. Our aim was to create an evening of female connection, empowerment and motivation and we hope we did just that!
With almost 50 women gathering from a range of different working backgrounds; Food & Beverage, Tech, Fashion, Education and more, we enjoyed an open panel discussion with impact-driven female founders, discussing the highs and lows of running a business and took part in interactive activities. A positivity wall was created where everyone wrote a mini motivating note to a fellow woman and mystery coffee dates have now been made!
We were joined by the lovely Susanna Wen from Birdsong, Sol Escobar from Give your Best, and Amy Gatehouse from Pink Diesel alongside our wonderful Joey Li, Leiho for our panel. Turner & Kidd’s Supper Club provided delicious canapés for us all to enjoy as we sipped on Pink Diesel’s delicious Rosé, Sassy Cidre’s yummy cider and Karma Drinks thirst-quenching Orangeade and networked with all the wonderful women!
A special mention must go to our sponsors Sassy Cidre, Fruu, Pink Diesel, Rhythm 108, Petite Moo, Mister Freed and Gracefully Free, who gifted delicious sweet treats, delectable tipples, soothing lotions, handcrafted silk scrunchies and more for us all to enjoy at The Pie Factory. And of course to our venue, The Pie Factory, a Benefit Corporation that supports social enterprises helping companies creatively embed more sustainability and positive impact into their businesses.
We're so excited to be launching this side of Leiho, building our community of do-gooders. Stay tuned for many more exciting Do Good, Feel Great with Leiho events!
