Life of a Lady Blog – Lady Val

My name is Lady Val though I am breaking tradition there because only daughters of hereditary Peers can use their first name (eg Lady Diana Spencer) so by rights I should be known as Lady Corbett. But my Networkers and others call me Lady Val so I have given up though keeping a wary eye on the Tower of London.
Avon Empowering Women AwardsWhy am I a Ladeee?

Because my MP husband was awarded a Peerage when he decided to vacate his seat after 18 years of hard slog (with no time off for good behaviour.). Unfortunately a title makes no difference when trying to get a table in a fully booked restaurant and is yet to get me upgraded on a flight, but I live in hope.

So what is this blog about?

Basically my life and times .. the people I meet, the things I think, the way of the world .. Anything which takes my fancy and which (hopefully) you will find either interesting, entertaining or thought-provoking.

Who knows, I could become addictive!

(And I am trying to limit my use of exclamations marks! Oops!)

What do I have to offer?

Well, take the last fortnight… I was a guest at the Dorchester for the annual awards lunch for Women in Finance and Banking (if they only knew I count on fingers, toes and if pushed, teeth.) I also hosted my Lady Val’s Professional Women’s Women’s Network lunch at Brown’s Courtrooms, saw a wonderful new play by James Baldwin at the National Theatre, the Amen Corner (highly recommended), plus new Superman film (don’t bother) and spent time with two inspirational women who met at one of my lunches and who are doing very well with their Mindfulness at Work business.

So the LIFE OF A LADY blog will connect with professional women, expound on lessons learned which could be useful to all of us and share snippets about people I’ve seen, places I’ve been and everything in between.
