Senior Met police officer to speak at AWTE event

Senior Metropolitan Police officer Kate Halpin will be the keynote speaker at an event hosted by the Association of Women Travel Executives (AWTE) next month.

Detective Chief Superintendent Halpin was recognised in the 2020 New Year Honours with the Queens Police Medal and has held key roles overseas.

Halpin first spoke to AWTE members in 2019, as part of the celebrations marking the Centenary of Women in Policing London, and will soon retire from the force after her 30-year career.

Taking place on October 12 in London, the event will be sponsored by The Inspire Group and Classic Collection.

Lisa Henning, managing director at The Inspire Group, said: “Kate is a truly inspiring speaker and her career progression and success in the police force clearly demonstrates that you can achieve whatever you set yourself with focus and determination.

“She is an inspirational speaker and I know those who hear her speak will find her massively stimulating and motivating.”

The Inspire Group’s homeworking division is offering 10 free spaces for the event.

Henning added: “It’s been an incredibly tough 18 months for the industry and with furlough coming to end, it’s vital that we look out for colleagues who may be displaced and offer them opportunities to network.

“Providing support to co-workers and championing each other are values that sit at the heart of the Inspire Homeworking proposition and that’s why we are delighted to offer these free places.”

Si Morris- Green, director of agency sales and marketing for Classic Collection Holidays & Classic Package Holidays, added: “We are pleased to support and partner with such an inspirational and pioneering organisation that inspires female figures of travel, past, present, and future.”
