Regional events, Women in IP

IP Inclusive North of England invite you to our next event in which we will host a panel discussion followed by the chance to network with your peers from across the IP professions. We will be discussing flexible working with a diverse panel of speakers, with discussion and networking after. The panel will be hosted at HGF’s office in Leeds, with live broadcasts to other cities across the north of England so that everyone can get together in person with their local colleagues.

The panel will be chaired by IP Inclusive’s Lead Executive Officer Andrea Brewster and will include:

  • Chris Burnett, Patent Attorney at Birkett Long LLP
  • Ruth Gawthorpe, CEO at The Smart Working Revolution and The Change Directors
  • Lisa Kelly, Associate Director at Sacco Mann
  • Heather Scott, Partner and Patent Attorney at Gill Jennings & Every LLP

The event begins at 3 pm for a 3.30 pm start to the panel discussion, with networking from 4.30 pm. Registration is free and open to anyone who works in IP, whatever their role. We look forward to seeing you.
