Yorkshire Ladies Links have announced that they are coming to South Yorkshire for the first time in October – and our Barmy owner Eve Lodge has been named as one of the guest speakers!

The Yorkshire Business Festival – celebrating Women in Business – is to be held at Tankersley Manor on the outskirts of Barnsley (just off junction 36 of the M1) on Thursday, October 1.


Seventeen-years-old award-winner Eve (pictured below) is one of five guest speakers named so far, joining her friend, the inspirational BBC Young Apprentice winner Ashleigh Porter-Exley; well-known award-winning local business woman Jo Maltby from #Wetherbyhour and Handpicked Local; business adviser Sarah Valentine-Bull from Propolis Professional Services; and creative expert on design, print and marketing and lover of shoes Dally Riyat from Print Ideas.

Said Eve: “I’m honoured to be asked to be a guest speaker at such a prestigious event. I’m already looking forward to it, and I’m delighted to be joined by such inspirational people such as Ashleigh Porter-Exley who I now class as a lovely friend.”
