Women in Construction Sussex October 2022

Last week ECE Group and Hawes Construction Group hosted our inaugural Women in Construction Sussex event.

Our guest speaker, Sally Gunnell OBE, gave an inspiring and motivational talk about managing expectations, self-motivation and achieving your goals.

The second part of the evening involved some fun and interactive wine & cheese tasting activities, hosted by Plumpton College. All attendees were spilt into three groups, moving around each activity in a friendly atmosphere which gave the opportunity to mix and connect with fellow attendees.

Everyone had the opportunity to learn about English wines, pairing cheese with different types of wine, and how sugar dosages affect the taste of wines, followed by a surprise prize draw to conclude the evening.

We have received some fantastic feedback:

It was a great relaxed event, lovely to meet other women in the industry and hear about their work and experiences.”

“It was the best networking event I’ve been to.”

“The talk from Sally Gunnell was amazing and inspirational, it set the tone for the evening to energise everyone. It was great to see a room full of women, I have done many networking events but none that are women focused.”

The team at ECE are thrilled to have hosted such a successful first Women in Construction Sussex evening and look forward to organising more in 2023.
