It wasn’t all smooth behind the scenes though as Guest Speaker, Jo Fairley of Green & Black’s was struck down with Covid on the eve of the event. Pink Link's Coral Horn, pictured here with Alison Edgar MBE, said: "After the initial wobble, we did what we do best – when disaster strikes, we make a plan and reach out to our network! Two amazing female speakers dropped everything and stepped up to the rescue. From the applause, emails and comments on social media, their stories resounded with the audience and they were absolutely brilliant.”
