We welcomed more than 250 members and guests to the spectacular 17th floor of News UK for our 21st birthday party, where some very well known names and faces from newspapers, magazines, websites, PR, polling, TV, radio and regulators mingled over drinks generously sponsored by Gorkana, and fragrant cocktails made with St Germain Elderflower liqueur.
Highlights of the evening were speeches from WIJ founder Eve Pollard and Dame Liz Forgan, chair of the Scott Trust, who launched our new Georgina Henry Award for Innovation in memory of her hugely talented late colleague, who was also a founding member and chair of WIJ.
Many thanks to our present chair and party hosts Eleanor Mills, News UK , Hilly Janes, Julia Gregory and Kate McMillan for organising WIJ’s biggest-ever event. We are also very grateful to the companies who so kindly supplied us with the contents of our goody bags – a fabulous end to a fabulous evening.
