Welcome to our second Whisky Summit, a digital conference that will bring together experts from around the globe to discuss the challenges, opportunities and experiences of being a woman in whisky.
The 90-minute session, brought to you by Distill Ventures and moderated by whisky expert, media personality and journalist Becky Paskin, will feature a diverse, compelling roster of perspectives from whisky founders, brand marketers, and wholesalers including:
Ashley Frey, Co-Founder, Frey Ranch Estate Distillery (USA)
Hil Ying Tse, Managing Director, Whiskies & More (Hong Kong)
Julie Bramham, Brand Director, Johnnie Walker (UK)
Laura Davies, Distillery Manager, Penderyn Distillery (Wales)
Kristy Lark-Booth, Owner and Head Distiller, Killara Distillery (Tasmania)
In addition to a Q&A, topics of discussion will include:
- How can drinks businesses work together with staff to create inclusive, diverse teams and spaces?
- How do we empower and provide access to opportunities for new leaders in a category that has historically lacked diversity?
- How do we change the perception of whisky as being a 'man's drink?
- What advice would you give the next generation of female distillers, brand ambassadors and whisky specialists looking to make their mark?
We look forward to having you join us for what will be a fascinating and insightful discussion.
