Q&A with Ruby Rosé

Give us a quick intro…

Hey guys, I’m Ruby!  I’m a bit of a free spirit, I love to travel and I love to party!

Tell us about your career…

I love to mingle and chat to people so I’ve made a career out of it!  I’m an event planner, and I’ve recently started my own business and phew does it keep me busy!  I’m on a steep learning curve, but I love every moment of it!  To be honest there’s times when I’m lost or I doubt myself, but that’s the power of networks, there’s always someone there to give me the boost I need to get back on track!

What keeps you awake at night…

Ha ha I’m lucky in that respect – I’m still fabulously single so I don’t have to put up with a snoring bloke quite yet!!  But I’ve recently read Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg, and it got me thinking.  I look at my friends and what they’ve been through and I think as women, we need to build our networks and whether we chose to have careers inside or outside of the home, we should talk about the challenges that we face.  So I’m hosting pro bono networking evenings where women can grow professionally and support each other.

What’s your favourite wine and when do you like to drink it…

I always have wine at my events; Rosé is my favourite especially in summer and when I’m catching up with the girls for a night out!  All that socializing can be exhausting, but that’s nothing an evening in, a glass of Young Estate wine and an episode of Grey’s Anatomy won’t fix!

Describe your style…

My friend Bettie has a fabulous clothing store, I love the fifties style and I never leave home without my signature broaches and red lippy!
