With the event and award season fast approaching, Emma Blaney, founding member and Founder of Productive Property People, talks about the true meaning and importance of networking.
We all lead super busy lives. Between work, friends, family and all the other commitments you have signed yourself up to, networking can feel like an unnecessary add on. For so many people, opportunities to network go on the calendar and then come off as soon as something deemed more significant (or more fun) comes along. But networking is actually one of the most important, and enjoyable, parts of building your career in the leasehold industry.

It is no secret that one of the main motivators for setting up Doyenne was to support women and to help them achieve. Women in senior positions in our sector are in the minority, but this is even more true for young women. In a such a male dominated industry it can be even harder for younger women, or at least women who look younger, to establish a presence and gain their deserved respect.

Emma Blaney, Founding Member and Founder of Productive Property People, writes about her new found identity as a feminist and the book that changed her mind. Authored by Emma Blaney.
For the longest time if someone asked me if I was a feminist my answer was always no. Not because I was lying but because I genuinely didn’t identify as a feminist. I believe my go to line was always ‘I am not a feminist, I believe in equality’. In my mind feminism stood for the subjugation of men and the elimination of gender altogether. Well I like men, I like being a woman and I don’t want to be a queen bee* so where did that leave me?
