THE QUARTER CLUB: [POWER]
So, 2016. You’ve really kept us on our toes, alright? Let’s face it, it’s been a year that’s left most of us feeling like we’re up shit creek without a paddle (or a boat for that matter), so it’s time to take back a bit of control back and start 2017 a’fresh with a new QC theme that we think is more timely than ever.
**DRUM ROLL PLEASE**
On the 9th of January we’ll be launching our Salon #5 around the theme of POWER.
We’ll be kicking off the New Year by taking a look at the positive aspects of that oh-so-loaded word. We want to explore the importance of collectivism and community as a force for empowerment and positive social change. In the harsh light of the Donald Trump 'reality' - which is a genuine blow for women's rights worldwide - we feel like, now more than ever, positive examples of female sisterhood are vital.
Set to be our biggest (and bestest) yet, Salon #5 also marks a big ol’ step up for us as we move into a new home: The Vaults. The Quarter Club is all about the POWER of getting a roomful of women together, so we think it’s time to make that room bigger than ever for a theme that we reckon is the most important we’ve ever had.
The set up is the same as before (if it ain't broke, don’t fix it). Tickets include the usual fare: a free glass of prosecco or a non-alcoholic tipple and nibbles, plus a whole lotta beautiful gifts from our sponsors. Now don’t say we don't treat y’all. Our last events have been rip-roaring SELL OUTS and we hate turning yous’all away so please do buy your tickets in advance - we really want you there.
As ever, we’re inviting a handful of remarkable women to come and speak for five minutes on our theme as a clever way to kick-start the conversation in the room (no stuffy Q&A’s here thank you very much). And we’re SUPER excited by the women we’ve got fronting our line-up this time around:
