Women’s Day Conference in Riga, Latvia

Posted on March 7, 2013 · Posted in Blog

I am in Riga for the 9th International Business Networking Event, at which I am speaking tomorrow – International Women’s Day. It’s great to be able to bring together my professional and personal enthusiasm for the Russian-speaking world with my credentials as a businesswoman.

At the same time I’m really enjoying my second visit to this beautiful city, which looks wonderful in the spring sunshine, while the snow has not yet melted from the parks and rooftops.

Yesterday evening there was networking at a local bar and this afternoon I am going to an awards ceremony at the Social Sciences faculty of the university, where an old Latvian colleague of mine from the days when I managed Nottingham Women’s Centre, Linda Uzulina, has been nominated for her work in the sphere of women’s development in Latvia.

This evening I will have dinner with a colleague based out here who originally hails from sunny Nottingham.
