#YESYOUCAN Brunch Special Guest Clemmie Telford @ The German Gymnasium 9.30am
We’re thrilled to be kicking off the day with the #YESYOUCAN brunch at the German Gymnasium to celebrate the newest breed of modern working mums – the ones who are getting the job done their way.
Between Clemmie, Alice and Phanella they have 7 children, 6 jobs, a handful of throbbing social media accounts and a published book. They aren’t trying to Have It All – heaven forbid – they are saying that today, #YESYOUCAN and they want to show you how.
Feast on a traditional Mitel – European breakfast – a selection of pastries, muffins, croissants, cold cuts and cheese as well as fresh fruit and muesli. With freshly made juices teas and coffees and an inspiring talk there will be no better way to kick of IWD 2017.
Clemmie Telford is a creative Strategist at Facebook and Instagram and a mum to two young boys. She is also a successful InstaMum and her hugely successful blog, Mother of All Lists explores what it means to be a 21st century woman.
#EATWELLWORKWELL Lunch Special Guest Melissa Hemsley @ 100 Wardour Street 12.30pm
Why are we breaking in the middle of the day at the glorious underground eaterie at 100 Wardour Street? To remind women that breaks – balance – matters. And who better to explore modern working patterns, with Step Up Club than the all round brilliance that is Melissa Hemsley.
#EATWELLWORKWELL is the simple act of not sitting at your desk: it’s getting out, it’s eating well, it’s making time for personal space, thinking and good food in the middle of the day. Guests will enjoy a delicious banquet of Tiger Prawns with Citrus Butter, Crispy Pork Belly with Celeriac and Apple Puree, Iron Age Steak with Chimichurri and Crispy Shallots as well as Mushroom Flatbread with Crème Fraiche and Garlic. A selection of sweet and savory treats will follow, including Pecorino and Truffle Honey, Vanilla Panna Cotta and Plum Compote.
