On 9 March 2013 I got my first glimpse of the Emirates Air Line cable car!
I was at Royal Victoria Dock to attend the 2inspire Ladies Day Exhibition at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Docklands but the view in the early morning mist was definitely worthy of a couple of photographs before going in to set up my display.
This was my first time as an exhibitor, and I considered various trade shows in order to promote my business, but chose the Ladies Day Exhibition because the other exhibitors businesses complemented mine and I was also the only photographer registered. It was consistently busy throughout the day and I spoke to a lot of people, which was very encouraging.
In addition to a range of very talented and diverse business people, there were workshops and musical entertainment. The 2inspire Network was launched in May 2012 by Hazel Chawapiwa to empower women, and in recognition of her achievements she has been nominated for 'Role Model of the Year' at this year's Women4Africa awards. Good luck Hazel!!
Interestingly enough one of the other exhibitors at the Ladies Day Exhibition was Patrice Buddington from Birkbeck University. I used to liaise with her a few years ago when I was the Senior Tutor for Aim Higher at Tower Hamlets College. She was there to promote the opening of a new Birkbeck University campus in Stratford in September 2013. It really is a small world after all.
