International Women’s Day

The purpose of the Drinks Association International Women’s Day lunch is to bring the Drinks industry together to inspire and educate our industry to deliver equal opportunity across all genders in order to create a better future.

The Drinks industry International Women’s Day event has built extraordinary momentum and desire for diversity and inclusion in our industry. Over the last few years, we have heard inspiring key notes from female speakers and panel discussions amongst industry representatives.

We are delighted to announce that best-selling author, human rights activist and motivational speaker Fiori Giovanni will be the keynote speaker for the Drinks Association’s 2024 International Women’s Day event on Friday, 8 March.

Fiori is renowned for inspiring audiences with her powerful message of hope, resilience, courage, and leadership.

Born in Eritrea, a war-torn African country, Fiori’s marriage was arranged when she was 12. At 14, she was recruited to the Eritrean army and taught how to fight, shoot and kill. And at 15, Fiori made the agonising decision to leave her family and escape the war to find a better life in a free country. She travelled to 25 countries and five continents in search of knowledge, personal growth, and personal freedom.

Fiori is the author of the best-selling memoir Defy Your Destiny and the owner and CEO of My Mind Valley, an online product hub for those seeking fulfilment, confidence and clarity through affirmations.

Join us for lunch as Fiori shares her captivating story of bravery, courage, and strength and how she has forged her own path and defied her own destiny.
