May 21, 2:00pm-5:00pm

We celebrated swib's 25th birthday in style with a very special event. For 25 years, swib has been encouraging, supporting and bringing together women in business, the professions, public sector and charitable organisations, to provide a forum where women can network. It was definitely time to celebrate!

No ordinary birthday party, though, this fully-booked event with over 150 guests was also our new Celebrating Women awards ceremony, held at the wonderful Oran Mor in the west end of Glasgow.

Our afternoon was compered by Alison Walker, broadcaster, presenter and businesswoman, and began with networking over a glass of fizz, followed by an array of entertainment, of laughter, music and stories, and a luxury afternoon tea. And the Awards, of course! You can find details of the winners here.

There are many professionally-taken photos from the afternoon - you will find them in our swib photo gallery.

Comments from those who attended included:

Brilliant event, absolutely loved it. It all went really smoothly and loved the entertainment too.

This was a first class event from start to finish, you provided guests with a great afternoon and showed off swib at its best!

Thought the event was amazing. Slick and professional and proud to be a SWIB member! Great showcase for what we are good at. Entertainment was good too - good fun. ... Well done to all - goody bags amazing! Room fab, tables looked great.

What a joyous occasion; a real celebration; a beautiful venue but it was all about the [mainly] women in the room. It was a great and worthy celebration.

Enjoyed every minute of it and had several people tell me how much they enjoyed it. Real buzz in the room!

It was an absolutely fantastic event from start to finish.

The spirit of SWIB was in evidence in everyone I met and the whole event.

I will be joining...what a dynamic, friendly and fun crowd of women. Have to be part of the gang!

The enthusiasm and energy in the room was wonderful and it was a great success. It had a little bit of magic.

Thanks to all who gave constructive and helpful feedback on various elements of the event - these will all be considered by the committee.
