TBA Amsterdam

On 26 November we will be hosting our exclusive annual [email protected] event for our female clients and contacts. [email protected] is a unique event for business women providing expert insights into relevant hot topics and creating networking opportunities.

This year we will organise an afternoon with topics relating to the circular economy. The event will take place at the QO hotel in Amsterdam, a hotel taking an environmentally kindly approach to hospitality. An example of how they envisage a living building is the greenhouse on the roof of the hotel.

Margreet van Schaijck (Brand Manager Lush NL & BE) will discuss Lush's point of view on sustainability and will give interesting insights on how Lush has made its impact on the world and on the environment. Lush has been awarded this year as the Changemaker in Retail and has been at the forefront of sustainable retail for a long time.

Bird & Bird laywers Sophie Dingenen and Tessa van den Ende will present on sustainability from a legal perspective, touching upon new and interesting developments in the legal field.

All presenters will participate in a panel session, where there is the possibility for all guests to ask questions and join the discussion. Please note that the above mentioned topics will be presented in the Dutch language.

After the panel session you are invited for drinks and bites in skybar Juniper & Kin, where you will also have the opportunity to participate in a guided visit of QO's urban greenhouse on the roof of the hotel.

Please send us an email if you would like to receive more information about [email protected]
