We are delighted to be able to hold our second Females in Focus lunch this year at Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow on Friday 19th August 2022.

This lunch aims to bring together women (and men!) from all across Scotland all with an interest in the Scottish motor trade to listen to our panel of inspiring women and also enjoy a delicious lunch.  We are excited to confirm that Heather Dewar, sports journalist, tv and radio presenter will once again host our event.

Guest panelists include Louise Aitken-Walker, former British rally driver.  Louise’s career began in 1979 when she was entered in Ford’s ‘Find a Lady Rally Driver’ competition, without her knowledge, by her two brothers and was a winner from 2000 entrants. It spanned fourteen years up to 1993 when she retired to have a family. During those years she was the first woman to win a National Rally outright, survived a horrific crash in Portugal and became the first, ever British driver to win a world title – FIA Ladies World Rally Champion.

Cat Treanor a Certified Automotive Engineer who now works for Electude UK, Cat is very passionate about encouraging diversity in the automotive industry and regularly presents at industry events worldwide to showcase the importance of equality in the trade and sharing her experience.

We will also be presenting our 'Nan Lindsay Award' at this event - GET YOUR NOMINATION FORM HERE!
