High Tea at the British High Commission
A real delight to meet Brunei’s newest British High Commissioner John Virgoe, for the first time. As a supporter of British initiatives overseas, he hosted a virtual meet-up between myself, Supna Rania and the Women of the Future team in the UK, including Pinky Lilani, it’s incredible founder.
As well as catching up since our involvement in the programme in 2019, Supna and I were introduced as official WoF representatives for Brunei. In this role, we will be working to promote awareness and participation of their upcoming Southeast Asia awards in 2021.
Discussing the Women of the Future programme and the amazing talent within Brunei was so uplifting and I can’t wait to organise something special to help launch the 2021 awards. Nominations will open in December 2020 and further updates can be found here.
