About Us

The Room Upstairs supports female business leaders, senior executives and business owners through a series of one-day advisory panels/workshops and monthly lunches that are designed to facilitate peer-to-peer learning and engagement.

Although our primary focus is on female executives, we are strong advocates of equality and meritocracy across gender, race, age and disability.

About The Room Upstairs Executives:

Focused on relationship building, it’s a dinner party with great speakers – and you, seated next to interesting, informed guests. Plus a host who asks what you are looking for and who you would like to meet, then seats you next to a potential contact or introducer.

Come and join us, meet new people and have your say : there is no membership fee and no category exclusivity.

Our next event is: 30th January 12.30-2.30pm at Browns, Covent Garden

Speaker: Sharon Benning Prince, Anti-Slavery Envoy for Medaille Trust, speaking about Modern Slavery & the Supply Chain

“These events really work!”

“Thank you … for your fantastic follow-up. By way of feedback, I joined other groups who say they will do this, only, the email never materialises. You stand out as you consistently forward everyone’s requests to the group.”

“Just to let you know that I have managed to get speakers for my events thanks to your lunch.”

“I have two new clients. Both referred by women I met at your lunches.”

“Thank you. I met with your speaker and we are now providing mentoring for her clients.”

“I just wanted to tell you … I invited someone I met at your lunch to speak at an event. She was fabulous, you need to ask her to speak at TRU!”
