Saturday 20th May 2017 marked the day when career driven women from all walks of life united to share their expertise and experiences at the innovative event of the year ‘Future Shapers Live 2017’. Our favourite fashion and beauty publication, Marie Claire, teamed up with Neutrogena to present a day bursting with wisdom, inspiration, enjoyment and exquisiteness – what more need a girl ask for? The bespoke event that took place at the prestigious Sofitel London, St James opened its doors to career focused women who were aiming to future proof their careers and reshape their working lives.
During the event attendees were honored the opportunity to drop into various speaking sessions hosted by a fascinating array of high profile speakers, including the likes of Trish Halpin, Editor-in-chief at Marie Claire; comedian, author and presenter, Katherine Ryan, co-founder of Hemsley + Hemsley and author, Melissa Hemsley, and many more. Each session focused on fundamental career developing topics, such as ‘How to build your persona brand’, How to start your business from scratch’ and ‘How to get ahead in the digital world’. Along with wisdom and knowledge the special guests in attendance also brought their fashion A-game to the table, which most will agree was the icing on the cake.
Adding sunshine to an already sunny day was exactly what the Future Shapers Live event did, the inspirational summit which was in partnership with Neutrogena, offered guests the chance to take part in a cocktail making master-class, whilst indulging in some thirst-quenching Cointreau Fizz cocktails that remained floating throughout the evening.
Guests were also welcomed to various beauty treatments in the Neutrogena beauty lounge; which included facials, mini makeovers, manicures and pedicures, henna tattooing by Pavan and hairstyling and braiding. To add an exciting ending to a rather enchanting day – Marie Claire Editor-in-chief, Trish Halpin, took the honor in welcoming comedian and presenter, Katherine Ryan, to present the final speaking session, in which she delivered an inspirationally moving session, that left everyone both laughing their lungs out while simultaneously itching to make a head start in redesigning their career paths.
