Sharp Raise a Glass to Networking Event

Sharp Consultancy’s ‘Women in Business’ evenings have proven to be hugely popular and now the Sheffield-based financial recruiters have once again welcomed guests from across South Yorkshire and Derbyshire to another popular networking event – this time for Gin Tasting.

Attendees included finance and HR clients from throughout the region including Zoo Digital, Panache Lingerie, PCM, BHP, Grant Thornton, SIG plc, GI Group, Togel Contractors, Arnold Laver, Woolley Brothers, Learn Direct, QFM and Ikara Business Solutions along with Jane Houghton MBE from Global Brands, who provided some of the drinks for the evening.

Business Manager Rachael Kerr hosted the evening along with Rebecca Hockley, Matt Civil and Nabarun Dasgupta at Trippets Lounge Bar in Sheffield where Alex Girvan, the Brand Ambassador for Masons Yorkshire Gin took guests on a very informative journey about the history of gin and its path from the Netherlands to the UK. Thanks to a collaborative effort by Alex and the chef at Trippets, guests were also guided through a tasting of four different gins which had been expertly paired with a superb food menu.

Rachael said: “Our Women in Business evenings have been so well received over the last couple of years that we are delighted to have been able to host another event – this time showcasing gin – which has once again been extremely well attended. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive with many commenting on the relaxed atmosphere which made it a great environment to establish new connections and catch up with familiar faces. Many are already looking forward to the next event in the calendar!”

‘The speaker for Mason’s was fantastic, and we really enjoy the talk about the history etc… We’ve been enlightening our colleagues this morning!!’

‘Thanks for a great night Rachael. The gin and food were fabulous’

‘Thanks for organising last night’s gin tasting and thanks for inviting me. Had a great time and met some really lovely ladies.’

‘Thank you very much, I really enjoyed last night.’   

‘What a super evening I had last night.  I really did enjoy getting to know you and the two ladies on the table were great company.’
