Francis Holland School, Sloane Square, hosted the first ever Hub Dot event in a school for 250 people recently. It was also the first Hub Dot event where knowledge and wisdom was shared across generations from pupils aged 16 through to mothers, staff and FHS old girls.
Hub Dot is a global movement that connects women through storytelling and is a perfect fit with Francis Holland’s vision to build enterprise and creativity in its pupils and open their minds to the power of social networking and the world beyond school.
Headmistress, Mrs Lucy Elphinstone said: ‘There is a powerful alchemy that comes from enterprising women telling their stories and making connections. We are proud to be the first school to host a Hub Dot event and excited at the opportunities this gives our students to be inspired by the creativity and courage which bring success.’
Hub Dot were thrilled to be taking their Dots and storytelling into a school for the first time bringing together mothers, daughters, old girls and teaching staff for an evening of sharing inspirational ideas around a variety of topics from tech entrepreneurship to self-reinvention.
Hub Dot was founded in 2012 by Simona Barbieri, and has grown from a small group of women who turned up for a coffee morning to a global phenomenon with over 14,000 members and events in cities all over the world. It’s about women helping women and connecting with one another in a way that inspires. At their events, women leave their job titles behind and simply pick a coloured dot that best represents their mindset for that evening.
