​Wonder Women – an evening of extraordinary talent for International Women’s Month

In the month of March TV and Radio Broadcaster,  Leah Charles-King hosted a successful Wonder Women inspirational evening at the swanky Primo Bar in Westminster Park Plaza hotel in honour of International Women’s Month.

The evening secured a fantastic line up of inspiring women who happily rallied around Leah in support of the even, starting with Claudine Reid MBE. Claudine was voted as one of Britain’s Top 100 Most Entrepreneurial Women by Real Business Magazine. Her track record is truly inspiring as a C.E.O, Coach, Mentor, Trainer, Radio & TV Presenter, Author & Social Entrepreneur, Wife & Mother, Claudine somehow managed to make time to speak at the event. Giving a motivating and inspirational speech about women in business.

Claudine was able to grab everyone’s attention with her words of wisdom, leaving the audience fired-up to take their careers to a whole new level.

Nairobi Thompson followed with a stunningly beautiful and powerful spoken word which kept the room hanging on her every word. Nairobi is a performance artist with a distinctive style and tone and writes and shares poetry that inspires, challenges and empathises with women and men alike.

After 2 inspirational speakers, it was time to get some speed networking underway. Jackie Groundsell, successful business woman, had the audience on their feet for 30 second networking session. All participants had half a minute to deliver their pitch and make strong connections. This was networking like no other, and it was a great success.


To close what was already a successful evening, comedienne Melanie Gayle  showed the audience her uncanny impersonation of Missy Elliot and Jennifer Hudson. Melanie, a Beffta winner for best comedian in 2015, had the crowd in hysterics with her brilliant anecdotes and hilarious singing voice. There was no better way to end the perfect evening than with a room full of laughter.

“Wonder Women – an evening of extraordinary talent” – which was sponsored by The Red Carpet Academy – definitely lived up to its name. It was truly an evening of women inspiring other women! Ending with some aspirational words, its founder Leah Charles-King, said ‘We need to empower each other more and help each other break that glass ceiling’. These words strongly struck a chord with the audience and it was safe to say that every woman present left with a new sense of zeal whilst booming with a refreshed confidence and armed with a number of new business contacts and firm friends.
