Chrystal Capital hosts Ladies’ Lunch

September 2017

Chrystal Capital Partners LLP (Chrystal), the FCA regulated corporate finance boutique based in London, hosted a lunch for a select group of 28 women on Friday 29 September in the private dining room at The Ivy Chelsea Garden.

The purpose of the lunch was to bring together an exclusive yet diverse group of women from a variety of backgrounds including finance, philanthropy, arts, media, fashion, law and politics.  Stephanie Herriger of Chrystal Capital created the event with a view to connecting pioneering women of all backgrounds in order to give them the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and add to their professional and personal networks.

Whilst in contrast to some of our previous events, there was no main speaker, each individual had the opportunity to share their own personal journey and experiences which resulted in a highly dynamic and interactive round table discussion.  Some of the guests were in fact already clients of Chrystal Capital either as part of our family office network or entrepreneurs who have been connected to Chrystal, however many were equally new to the Chrystal network but have already actively re-engaged as potential investors, clients or co-investment partners from the VC/PE community.

Paula Abrahamian, Partner at Fletcher Day Law Firm, commented:

“The Ladies’ Lunch organised by Chrystal Capital not only provided an opportunity to expand my business network, it also allowed me to reconnect with existing contacts.  I have since followed up with three of the guests with whom I am confident I can do business with.  A very enjoyable and inspirational way to spend an afternoon.”

Cecile Reinaud, Founder, Seraphine, commented:

“The Ladies’ Lunch organised by Chrystal Capital was a unique opportunity to share our ideas and ambitions with a circle of women who all want to achieve exceptional things; be it in business, philanthropy or art.  By sharing our individual road to success, we helped each other foster a positive energy and desire to continue seeking success.”

Jade Dobber, London and Capital, commented:

“A truly inspiring afternoon. It was well organised and fantastically chaired by Stephanie. It was a great chance to meet likeminded women in a relaxed, sophisticated environment that made it very natural to network and identify business opportunities. The format was great, giving everyone a chance to speak and introduce themselves and their business area. The guests were engaging and enthusiastic and incredibly supportive of one another. Well done Stephanie on a very successful event.”
