An interactive panel / group discussion

What can be a better start after a relaxing summer break then having a cocktail, RE-connecting & Sharing with fellow PWG members? 

Do you, or have you ever thought about the many cycles and phases in your life? Many women have experienced similar life cycles that have profoundly influenced by professional, personal and health circumstances. These experiences interact and affect each of the others throughout our lives. Everyone has come across at least one major life-changing episode?

We invite you to join us in September when PWG members will share (and some of us present) these real life experiences and the impact they have had on our lives.

Here are some of the topics we will explore:

What does a “professional woman’s” life look like?

What are the various challenges and phases we have in our lives?

What are the concerns of a professional woman today? 

How do we cope with these challenges and transitions? 

A panel of our members (current and “recurrent”) will present and discuss their individual stories about:

-       job hunt success
-       changing profession and the idea behind
-       juggling both a professional and family life
-       integrating in a new environment
-       the role of PWG in these cycles

What story would you like to share with your fellow PWG members?  Your story could help and inspire others facing the same challenges so don’t be shy!

Think about it as a brief 5-7 minutes pitch (can include an illustration or a slide). If you prefer you can remain anonymous.

Email your experience and slide to: social@pwg-basel.ch. Someone from the events committee will contact you regarding your submission. We will release more information about the event as it becomes available.

Looking forward to an energetic and inspiring evening!

“A Slow Train to Switzerland” with Diccon Bewes

Author Diccon Bewes

Author Diccon Bewes

At the PWG’s main meeting on 29 October, 2014, our guest speaker is Diccon Bewes, a well-known international travel writer and author of three books about Switzerland and the Swiss. Diccon Bewes is English but has lived for eight years in Bern.

Save the date because Diccon’s engaging presentation focuses on an adventurous young English lady, Miss Jemima, who took part in Thomas Cook’s first conducted tour of Switzerland in 1863 and kept a journal of the tour group’s fascinating experiences.  What were their impressions of Switzerland and its people during their strenuous three-week trip? How, for example, did they manage to hike across Alps and glaciers dressed in typical Victorian attire, petticoats and all?

One hundred and fifty years after Miss Jemima visited Switzerland, Diccon retraced her steps, staying in the same places and discovering how Thomas Cook’s conducted tour transformed the country, its economy and its people and led to mass tourism on a global scale.

Please join us for this enlightening and entertaining evening and enjoy some delicious English teas and treats. Diccon’s book about Miss Jemima’s and his own journeys, “A Slow Train to Switzerland” are available at the PWG meeting as are his international best-sellers “Swiss Watching”  snd “Swisscellany” – all three are must-reads for expats and Swiss.

If you wish to learn more about Diccon, please visit his web site at www.dicconbewes.com.
