On Saturday 24th February, the forever-growing #WomenInBusiness event "Diamonds & Deals" RETURNED, and this time, the Diamond Dolls took over Milton Keynes. The event took place at Missoula Montana Bar & Grill.
After two successful events in London in 2017, whereby guests had the opportunity to hear the success stories from some famous faces such as Bianca Gascoigne (Entrepreneur and Celebrity Big Brother finalist) and Jessica Cunningham (Entrepreneur and contestant of BBC's The Apprentice), Gemma (GEMMEDIA) & Natalie (U&I Lifestyle) decided that it was time to change it up a little bit, and take the brand to Milton Keynes. With so many up-and-coming businesses, and with more and more Femtrepreneur's opening up businesses in MK, the girls thought it would be the perfect spot to expand the brand out to.
Following the theme of the previous events, Gem and Nat continued to support their chosen charity, Target Ovarian Cancer.
"We feel like Target Ovarian Cancer is the perfect charity for Diamonds & Deals to collaborate with. Not only does it match with our theme of bringing women together, but it gives the charity the opportunity to share their knowledge and information about Ovarian Cancer with a room full of 50-60 young women, who may not know much about the disease. It's a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness", said Natalie Naaman, Founder and MD of U&I Lifestyle and partnering creator of Diamonds & Deals.
The all-day women's networking event kicked off at mid-day with Natalie (@natnaaman2807 @uilifestyleltd) & Gemma (@gemmediamk @fashionshowmk) welcoming the guests, and taking a cheeky photo of everyone #forthegram, obviously!
