Camilleri Paris Mode

Looking Back At Our Event

SHE Networking Event

28th June 2018, Camilleri Paris Mode, Rabat

Truly a momentous day shared by a community of brilliant women in the stylish surrounds of Camilleri Paris Mode. Guest speakers Jo Caruana, Carla Grima, Vanessa Coleiro and representing our hosts Mara Camilleri shared with us their personal journeys of successes and failures while opening our eyes to the reality of entrepreneurship and how sometimes dealing with constant demands requires self-management and self-care ultimately.

When we opened the floor to our audience, panelists were met with further questions ranging from diet to career changes while also taking time to listen to the views expressed by others among us.

Delicious refreshments were prepared and served by the ladies at Flora’s. Audiovisuals by PowerHouse – Audiovisuals & Events, Photography by Majda Toumi and Videography by Agnes Gramala Filmmaker. Goodie bags were sponsored by MINT Family, Evviva Wines, Ellie & Carl, Stephanie Borg,, Picky Mouse, Grech & Co.
