Networking in style

Discover new horizons

Improve your wine knowledge

About us

The London Women and Wine Club is centred around wine and women. The aim is to learn about wine in a relaxed and pleasant environment, while providing networking opportunities to professional and accomplished women.

 

It is a virtual club, meeting once a month in different places around London, always private and beautiful locations, with each time some different food and wine choices around a theme. Each event includes a woman speaker around a different subject.

 

Both Laurence and Anne are qualified with the Diploma of WSET and they are passionate about wine, helping you discover new wines and network while listening to a really interesting woman speaker. The events are interactive and have ample time for questions and networking.

 

Members will also benefit from a record of what they liked as well as wine tips, discounts on events and other benefits.

Uncorking the secrets of cyber with Monica

Clarette

Monica Meade is the Global Head of Audit for Technology, Real Time Payments, and Transfer Solutions at Mastercard.

Before joining Mastercard, Monica worked for nine years at JP Morgan, where she served as the Head of Technology Audit for the Corporate and Investment Bank Markets team for Europe, Middle East, and Africa. Prior to that, she held various audit roles at Credit Suisse and Deloitte.

Aside from her professional career, Monica is a passionate advocate for social causes. She serves as a trustee of the Afro Caribbean Leukaemia Trust, a leading blood cancer/disorder charity dedicated to raising awareness of the severe shortage of donors on the U.K. stem cell, blood, and organ donor registers.

Additionally, Monica actively volunteers with the U.K. Cyber Security Council as an Assessor for Professional Registration titles, offering her expertise in assessing candidates. Her dedication to advancing the field of technology audit and information security is evident from her past role as President and board member of the award-winning ISACA London Chapter.

Monica is a Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), and a Chartered Cyber Security Professional (ChCSP). She holds a Postgraduate degree in Information Security from Royal Holloway University of London, along with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with Management from King's College London.

Cyber costs millions every year and is usually not a question of "if" but "when" and "how long". Monica will share a bit of light on this hidden world and who are the big actors, how do they get away with it, as well as how to protect one's organisation.

We will be tasting a selection of wines from Clarette, a really nice French restaurant with a private room.

 

Picnic opera Holland Park Barber of Seville

Holland Park

6 Tickets Left!

Join us for an outdoor Opera evening in one of the most unique London summer evenings!

Holland Park Opera has contacted us for a discounted offer to spend an evening together, eating, drinking, and listening to an amazing Opera. This is a one-off, we would like to try with you. Laurence and Anne enjoy operas and we both thought it could be a nice way to celebrate the start of Summer.

Doors open at 5.30 pm and, we suggest arriving from 6.00 pm. We will meet at the entrance of Holland Park Opera to be taken to a table reserved for us. Performances start at 7.30. there is an interval at 8.30-45 pm for 30 minutes. The performance ends around 9.35 / 9.45 and we can go back to our table if we want until it closes at 11 pm. A picnic from an Italian Deli will be served. It will be a Bring Your Own (BYO) bottle.  This is meant to be more about relaxing and networking and less about speakers or wine information.

Please find below the description from Holland Park Opera:

The Barber of Seville by Rosinni is a "sparkling comedy of intrigue told with style and panache. Figaro the barber turns puppet-master as he tries to prevent Rosina’s wedding to her elderly guardian, Doctor Bartolo, and instead to cement a match between her and the young Count Almaviva, Figaro’s former and future employer. Disguises and deceptions abound as the course of true love hits the rocks. With brilliantly inventive arias and ensembles that fizz at lightning speed, Rossini’s opera serves as a tart prequel to Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro.

Paul Grant takes the title role in Cecilia Stinton’s new production of this classic bel canto comedy, conducted by Charlotte Corderoy. Elgan Llŷr Thomas and Heather Lowe play Almaviva and Rosina, with Stephen Gadd as the conniving Doctor Bartolo. There is luxury casting in the supporting cast, as operatic superstar and celebrated comedienne Janis Kelly makes her company debut in the role of Bartolo’s dust-allergic housekeeper, Berta.

Because this is a different event from our usual ones, we have decided to put only one price for everyone, members and non-members: £96.

There are ONLY 12 seats available (or 24 if we have a lot of success) so be fast to register. As usual, a women's event only. Your family and friends are welcome!

The deadline to register is the 16th of May.
