We will hear from two leading ladies within CBRE’s Planning Team, Alison Tero and Lorraine Hughes who are both Senior Directors and part of CBRE’s Women’s Network in London. Alison will introduce us to the CBRE Women’s Network which spans the whole company and Lorraine will discuss her career journey to her current position.
Following the presentations, there will be plenty of time for networking over refreshments and nibbles whilst soaking in the view from the St Paul’s rooftop.
Join Women in Planning at our first breakfast event on the 11th April in partnership with Dentons.
The much anticipated Housing White Paper was published in February and has been hotly debated ever since, with the Shadow Housing Minister John Healey even calling it “a white flag not a white paper“. What impact will the Housing White Paper have on residential developers, local authorities, housing associations, landowners, and investors?
Join us for breakfast and hear what our distinguished panel have to say about it:

Each time another historic milestone is met by a woman it paves the way for future generations. We believe that having three women presidents across Royal Institute of British Architects, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and Royal Town Planning Institute at the same time is another important milestone to celebrate, presenting an opportunity to discuss and debate the state of play for women across the related professions.
Join Women in Planning to hear Jane Duncan (RIBA), Louise Brooke-Smith (RICS) and Janet Askew (RTPI) discuss their journeys to representing the built environment professions.
