Off to the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) reception at Centre Point in the heart of London's West End. These girls know how to enjoy themselves - champagne and delicious canapes all evening, courtesy of sponsors including RMJM. I was disappointed not to hear my old friend Paul Finch giving the audience his thoughts on what it is like being almost a feminist; although billed as a speaker he arrived only in time for fizz and eats, leaving the floor to others including Annette Fisher and Bob White, head of Mace. If this standard of conviviality is maintained, NAWIC could become one of London's most popular pressure groups. Among other luminaries present were Megan Maclaurin of engineer Techniker, Victoria Thornton of Open House fame and Anna Roche of Girl Guiding UK. Guides, apparently, provide a 'pool of some 750,000 girls' requiring careers advice. It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it.
