About the event
You are invited to a Virtual Christmas Wine Tasting with a twist! On December 10th. from 19:30 to 21:30 we will Zoom in wine to celebrate our last event of 2020, and to wish each other Happy Holidays. For this special evening we have planned a relaxed wine tasting with a twist. Each participant is expected to research beforehand and prepare a three minutes presentation of a wine or non-alcoholic drink of their choice. Make sure to include in your presentation; the region, pairing foods, best cheese to pair with, and any other interesting facts. We will also reflect on the year and enjoy our final get together of the year. As a special guest I have invited, Kate Bohn, co-founder of Technical Women in Leadership and some members. This is a UK based network formed by female leaders which motto is: #LiftAsYouClimb. Kate has worked at a global software house (Ipreo), a UK bank (Lloyds Banking Group), a European bank (Deutsche Bank) and a US bank (Citigroup). She has also worked across a range of roles and areas in the industry (Markets, Finance, Strategy, Technology, Operations and Innovation). Her focus is on engaging with accelerators, incubators, start-ups and scales-ups, fintechs, and tech giants.
