Earlier this month, Noble Events was delighted to join micebook, along with current and aspiring agency leaders, to celebrate International Women’s Day with the launch of the micebook Power 50. This digital publication showcases the inspirational women in leaderships across the events industry, and includes Noble Events’ Managing Director, Penny Noble, and Deputy Managing Director, Sarah Cox.
Speaking at the event, Penny said, “the micebook Power 50 initiative has been a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the achievements of an inspirational group of female leaders and to share our insights with the next generation of women who will steer our businesses into the future. Sarah and I are honoured to have been included.”
The agency also announced the promotion of two long-standing team members to the senior leadership team, recognising and rewarding their significant development and progression, as well as the loyalty and commitment demonstrated during the pandemic. Katie Stephens and Kate Furness will head up Noble Events’ account teams as Account Directors from 1 May 2022. Kate commented, “to be in a room with powerful females was heart-warming, especially after the last two years, and gave us all the confidence to believe in ourselves and show the world who we are. So many of the discussion points went full circle around ‘Imposter Syndrome’ and how women feel they don’t belong on the Board, which is why this initiative is so important to provide the support needed for females looking towards their next steps in management and leadership.”
Sarah Cox, Deputy Managing Director, said, “the event was a wonderful opportunity to introduce Kate and Katie to this powerful and inclusive network as they embark on the next step of their career journey. We are incredibly excited at the prospect of working closely with them to shape the future of our business whilst ensuring a consistently high level of customer satisfaction. This is a very exciting time for us all.”
