Kate Adie OBE, who is best-known for her former role as BBC’s chief news correspondent, will be addressing the second Meat Business Women networking seminar, taking place on 30 September at London’s Ironmongers’ Hall.
Laura Ryan, event organiser and head of strategic marketing for AHDB Beef & Lamb, is hoping the second networking seminar will be as successful as the first: “Our first event was a great success and provided a platform for communication across the supply chain, which we wanted to build with our next seminar.”
Adie, who is currently the long-serving host of Radio 4’s ‘From Our Own Correspondent’, will not be the only speaker at the event. She will be joined by Kantar Worldpanel’s consumer insight director, Lucy Balls, who will present on the practical factors affecting the meat industry and offer an insight into female and male consumption trends.
“Lucy will also make an excellent addition to the event. Her insights will provide valuable information for our participants, who represent all levels of the supply chain from abattoir onwards,” explained Ryan.
“I am convinced that women play a key role in retooling the supply chain and Meat Business Women can help achieve this. Through its commitments to increasing awareness and highlighting career opportunities, proactive groups, like Meat Business Women, can help attract more female talent to the meat industry.”
