Join us for dinner, drinks & a chance to meet other female entrepreneurs and professionals.

This is the second very informal get together, arranged by Tamar Beck and Randy Nyssen, for a small group of women to share ideas and learnings around personal and professional development.

Sorry gents, this dinner is ladies only.

We’re being joined by Georgie Cole, founder and CEO of Sheerluxe. Sheerluxe is one of the leading online magazines in the UK and counts myriad emerging, independent and well established brands and retailers from Monica Vinader and Reiss to and NET-A-PORTER as its commercial partners.

Georgie will talk after dinner about the transition to become a leader, ensuring a friendly environment for your team whilst inspiring leadership and authority and raising your profile in your work environment. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussions.

Join us for a chance to meet Georgie informally over dinner to talk about what you’re working on.

The cost includes private dining experience with speaker, 2 course dinner with wine plus highly curated and relevant networking.


P.S. TableCrowd are offering complimentary cab rides home (£15) thanks to their partner, Gett (Get Taxi!) on first download of the app. Details on the night.

Georgie Coleridge Cole grew up in London. She went to Edinburgh University where she received an MA in French. After working in marketing for COTY Beauty she founded - an online lifestyle magazine with over 120,000 daily subscribers featuring news and views on the latest and most desirable fashion, beauty, wellness and lifestyle products, brands and goods on offer.

Launching Sheerluxe was hard work, "the site launched in February 2007 after about a year of planning but we were not in a position to think about revenue until it had been live for 18 months and had gained some traction with readers and brands".

Today Sheerluxe is one of the leading online magazines in the UK and counts myriad emerging, independent and well established brands and retailers from Monica Vinader and Reiss to and NET-A-PORTER as its commercial partners.

Alongside, SheerLuxe runs a successful annual B2B eCommerce Conference which, now in its eighth year, is well attended by eCommerce retailers. The business also runs B2C reader events and in September, the company launched its sell-out first Women’s Entrepreneurs Conference aimed at women wanting to get off the corporate ladder and start their own business.

SheerLuxe raised two small rounds of Seed funding in 2007 & 2008 but nothing since. The business has been profitable since 2012 and employs a team of 15.

Georgie lives in South West London with her husband and two young children. And even though being both a mother and entrepreneur is not always easy, she loves every minute.
