We are pleased to announce one of our excellent speakers for the next Forever Manchester Women, taking place on Wednesday 18th October, kindly sponsored by Slater and Gordon and held at their event space: The Deck.

FM Women comprises of networking with like-minded ladies from across the region, followed by two speeches from two inspiring local women, one from a community project funded by Forever Manchester.


Nicola White – England & Great Britain International Hockey Player, Olympic gold medallist

Nicola picked up her first hockey stick at the tender age of seven and has never looked back. From representing her hometown school, Hulme Grammar in Oldham, through to county level and being picked to represent her country at under-21s, Nicola has risen the ranks to become one of Team GB’s biggest stars.

Nicola made her senior England debut in June 2009. From there she went on to win bronze at the Europeans that year and the team continued to produce medal winning performances which to date has accumulated to 13 medals.

But it was last year’s efforts in Rio which really placed Nicola and the rest of team Hockey GB above the rest on a balmy night in Brazil. Up against their arch-rivals the Netherlands, millions of us watched in awe as Team GB won in a dramatic penalty shoot-out to be finally crowned, gold medallists.

Find out more about Nicola on her website.
