Permission to Fail – June 2015

The Dutch Hall

Ladies in London invites you to talk about failure, success and how to positively push the boundaries in your life. Isn’t it our biggest ‘failures’ that lead to our greatest success stories?

We are delighted to introduce our guest speaker Victoria MacCallum, Head of Communications at the Cabinet Office. (You may have seen her in March’s Stylist magazine!)

Victoria will share her story of how she got to where she is today and how it’s not aways smooth sailing. From Chief Press Officer at the Department of Health and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and then on to 10 Downing Street and the Cabinet Office, Victoria will offer insight into why she believes that if you’ve haven’t messed up, you are not pushing hard enough!

And pouring our wines for the evening…

Louisa Rose – Chief Winemaker Yalumba and Hill Smith Family Vineyards.

To her Barossa Valley winery colleagues she is Lou but to her admirers – and she has legions among her colleagues – she is a “rock star“, a “leader” and a “great communicator“.

Louisa is the custodian of both Yalumba tradition and innovation at the 165-year-old winery. Yalumba was recently named “Winery of the Year” in Matthew Jukes 100 Best Australian Wines.

A particular focus for Louisa is the developmental work at Yalumba with Viognier, and the creation of ‘The Virgilius’ Viognier – Yalumba’s pre-eminent white wine. Louisa receives widespread recognition for her work with the variety, which is regularly considered to lead the industry. And we’re thrilled she’s coming along to share!

We promised you a musical treat, and now we can reveal the Germein Sisters!

A young exciting indie/pop band comprising of siblings Georgia, Ella, and Clara Germein, their catchy melodies, heartfelt lyrics, and distinctive harmonies are entertaining listeners across the globe.
