Women's Day Lunch 2019

Lunch for the International Women's Day, sponsored by BrandedU, Sofitel Legend the Grand Amsterdam and L'Oréal

What you focus on, expands” is the life motto of Nancy Poleon, founder of BrandedU and Branded Personalities, who was the Keynote Speaker during our 12th edition of the Women’s Day Lunch at The Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam.


Each year, the CCI France Pays-Bas attaches great importance in celebrating women’s empowerment by bringing together active women and men during the International Women’s Day, to share a lunch where one can network, connect and listen to the speech of an inspiring women.


This 5th of March, our Keynote Speaker was Nancy Poleon. With all her experience as Manager in the music industry, Nancy founded Branded Personalities (2011) and Branded U (2014) to help women increase their visibility and develop their personal branding. According to her, personal branding isn’t a self-promotion campaign but it’s about developing leadership skills and answering one crucial question which is:


What do you want to be known for?


Next to referring to her previous experiences with famous artists, she discussed some major tools for personal branding:
From P!nk and Britney Spears, she learned the importance of knowing what you want to achieve and showing the real you. From Alicia Keys, she learned the importance of defining your values and knowing your own qualities. From Westlife, she learned the importance of finding out what you are good at and become an expert in this field.


Nancy also taught us that investing in yourself and working on your own personal development is the only way to make your hard work count and become a strong brand as a person.


Our 80 guests could listen to this inspiring speech while enjoying a delicious lunch at  The Sofitel Legend The Grand in the historical Council Chamber.
Kees Hogetoorn, Director of Sales and Marketing of The Sofitel Legend the Grand, gave us the honour to do the closing speech. Instead of talking about the hotel’s history, he decided to spotlight important women linked to the hotel from Marie de Medicis to Juliana of the Netherlands and to the current Management Team composed of 12 women and 2 men.   


Last but not least, thank you L’Oréal for treating our guests luxuriously with a goodie bag filled with great care products (because we’re worth it…!).  

Thanks to this gift, the inspiring speech of Nancy Poleon and a great lunch, 80 happy guests left the hotel. We couldn’t ask for more (maybe only more men next time!)
