Women's Network Launched In Manchester

Manchester Lawyers Launch Event For Senior Business Women


On 14 October, lawyer Rebecca O’Callaghan and some of Irwin Mitchell’s Manchester based female fee-earners hosted the inaugural women’s network event in Manchester, providing women from across the city with a chance to network with other senior business women. 

The event’s key note speaker was Lisa Tse MBE, who shared the inspirational story of her and her sisters’ journey since setting up the award-winning Chinese restaurant, Sweet Mandarin. 

Since opening the restaurant, Lisa and her sisters have won an array of awards, written two Times bestseller cookbooks and now sell their Chinese gluten free sauces to Waitrose, Sainsbury's, Ocado and even back to China. 

They’ve also appeared on Dragons’ Den where they won over not one but two dragons - Duncan Bannatyne and Hilary Devey. 

Rebecca O'Callaghan, Associate and insolvency expert, said:

Expert Opinion
“I am very proud to have launched and hosted the women’s network event yesterday. It was a fantastic afternoon of business women networking with other like-minded women at one of Manchester’s most popular hotels, Gotham.

“It was especially exciting to hear from Lisa Tse who told us all about her incredible journey which started when her and sister quit their “proper jobs” in law and finance to follow their passion for food and a desire to run their own business.

“I’d like to say thank you to everyone who attended and I look forward to seeing you at our next event in February.”
