We are delighted to announce our Guest Speaker, Mary Turner-Thomson, author of The Bigamist and The Psychopath. Her true story of surviving the ultimate betrayal and life beyond.
When Mary met Will Jordan online, she was a single mother who’d given up trying to find Mr Right. And yet here he suddenly was: articulate and attractive, with a fascinating background. Soon they were in love, and when he proposed after a month it seemed recklessly romantic.
Caught up in a whirlwind, Mary accepted that Will’s work often took him away from home, out of contact. She was his rock, supporting him emotionally when a misunderstanding led to criminal charges, and even selling everything when blackmailers threatened to kidnap their children. Together, they took on the world.
And then one day the phone rang, and a woman introduced herself as ‘the other Mrs Jordan’

Mary will be answering the questions we will all be dying to ask.

Whilst the Awards have moved online this year, we have embraced technology to make this event as celebratory as ever. Networking with new people or catching up with old friends, the Awards all make for an enjoyable and uplifting afternoon. We are supporting our Inspiring Women Alumni in the shape of 2014 Entrepreneur Award winner, Sarah Gallacher from Cocoa Cabana who will be providing the optional luxury Afternoon Teas for our guests.

BBC presenter, Michelle Daniel will be interviewing the finalists and ensuring their stories are showcased as best as they can be. Awards Founder, Jacqueline Hughes-Lundy will be holding this inspiring, heartwarming and entertaining event together – what could possibly go wrong!

The 28th Inspiring Women Awards Lunch will take place online on 14th May 2021. Full instructions on how to join will be sent out in May.
