Women in Business 2024

The first networking luncheon for the Women in Business series was held on International Women’s Day, Friday 8th March in the newly opened “The Factory Café” in Cambridge St South, Levin.

Over 35 women gathered for networking, lunch and to hear from our two speakers featured in the Womanhood Journal NZ which was launched on the day. Carmen Gray from Elemental Cider provided a cider tasting for the guests of her award winnings varieties of ciders which matched perfectly with the hot pizzas. Donna Batten - Tremains Levin shared her very personal journey and her tenacity and motivation, and what it took to be successful in Real Estate and in life. Carmen Gray spoke about how she started her career as a chemical engineer before starting her Elemental Cider Business and what makes it unique from other Cider companies by growing her own cider apples to ensure quality control of her award winning ciders.
