Last weekend, Her Network, a platform created to connect, inspire and encourage women to help one another grow, hosted an exclusive event called ‘Chats & Cocktails’ for women in different career sectors in Lagos, Nigeria.

‘Chats & Cocktails’ was created to give women the opportunity to meet up, connect over cocktails and expand their personal and professional networks. Its essence is to show that women can come together, have real meaningful conversations, promote their businesses, sell their brands and build relationships with other women in an unconventional setting. The theme of this event – Real Talk. Real Network aimed at highlighting real accomplishments, struggles, encounters and business models that would motivate and inspire the next woman.

Nkem Onwudiwe, convener of the event and creator of Her Network said “It is important that we attend conferences and be inspired by the speakers and panelists but it is also important that we come together from time to time, to connect and have real conversations with each other in a more relaxed environment…Women need to realise that regardless of your social status or achievements, CEO or Fresh Graduate, you have a gift that can be of benefit to the woman next to you, be real, be supportive and most of all, be confident in yourself because only then will you be able to support another woman without feeling insecure about your unique capabilities.”. She concluded.
