Both of these stunning pieces useful for work & play, thank you Maia!
Alice’s show was multifaceted (a mixture of brilliant colors, textures & patterns) & her work is ever evolving, beautiful! I have my eye on that light pink mohair coat…

As a member of The Representation Project committee in London, I wanted to let you know about a fantastic opportunity to see the highly acclaimed documentary film Miss Representation, followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A.
We have teamed up with the Southbank Centre to host this special screening on Monday 3rd March 2014 at 7pm and I would be delighted for you to attend. Tickets are on sale now, so please do follow the link below to make your booking.
To give you some background, Miss Representation is a 2011 American documentary film written, directed and produced by Jennifer Siebel Newsom (who will be in London to introduce the film and take part in the panel discussion). The film explores how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in influential positions by circulating limited and often disparaging portrayals of women. The film premiered in the documentary competition at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and Oprah Winfrey bought the rights following the film’s premiere.
I very much hope to see you all there!
John Gordon, co-founder of Intelligence Squared, started the ‘how to: Academy‘ a few months ago.
I recently attended a seminar on ‘how to: Negotiate’ with Gavin Presman. It was REALLY helpful. I was impressed by the quality & caliber of people at the event.
My number one take away was preparing & assessing all your variables well before you start a discussion, something I don’t do well enough.
Allegedly John is plotting with Gavin to hold an advanced negotiation workshop so stay tuned.
As someone who is habitually late (not something I am proud of for you on-timers), this made me LAUGH. I will admit that my vanity is a source of tardy behaviour at times & can only pray that I am easier on the eyes upon arrival in order to be excused.
I had the privilege of attending a Goldman ‘Senior Women in Business Round Table’ breakfast last week & Nicola Mendelsohn, the VP of EMEA for Facebook, told us her story as well as some valuable life lessons. It obviously wasn’t appropriate to take a picture but in one of her anecdotes she said that the walls of the Facebook offices are covered in quotes & that her favourite is ‘What Would You Do If You Weren’t Afraid’, which I scribbled here on my notepad. Thanks for the invite Pads…x.
