**Postponed** Women in Leadership

Due to current circumstances this event has been postponed and a new date will be advised as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience.

Join us on 14th May 2020 at Knebworth Barns for our Women in Leadership lunch. These events enable you to network with peers and develop your leadership skills as well as provide mentoring, support and inspiration to the County's next generation of business leaders.

We are delighted to reveal that Claire Austin, Managing Director, Austin's Family Funeral Directors, is speaking at this event.

On 26th January 2020 Claire will be undertaking an Arctic Survival Challenge, 150km south of the Arctic Circle. This will involve adjusting to life in this extreme environment and learning how to get around, find food, light fires and build shelters. Claire is venturing into this harsh environment in order to test her survival skills and learn how to live in such a challenging environment. 

Claire will be giving 100% of donations to the charity Home-Start Hertfordshire, who help families in difficulty.

Austin’s was established in 1700 and Claire is the tenth generation to run the independent family business.  Having expanded in recent years, Austin’s now operates nine funeral arrangement offices throughout north and east Hertfordshire and owns Harwood Park Crematorium in Stevenage.

Claire has led Austin’s to win thirteen business awards, including the National Chamber of Commerce Entrepreneur of the Year 2012 and last year she was named as winner of the Inspiring Herts Awards Outstanding Contribution to Charity, in recognition of all the tireless activities & challenges she undertakes and subsequent money she raises on behalf of Hertfordshire-based charities.
