Set in the metropolis of London’s trendy Shoreditch at The Curtain Hotel, Modern Woman is set to host an exciting one-day show full of fireside chats, workshops & masterclasses, panel discussions and networking alongside food and drinks covering an array of topics suited towards both the employee, entrepreneur and business owner.

This event exists to inspire, empower and allow those in the industry to thrive in their career and business through thought provoking discussions and establishing new connections.

Our speakers withhold credible and well-respected positions from a number of diverse companies in the property & construction industry.

We're pleased to announce our exciting headline speakers from two high profile TV programmes who will share their insight as to what it’s like being in the property spotlight as well having to know the tips of the trade!

Martel Maxwell - TV Presenter & Journalist

Martel is a television and radio presenter, journalist, author and mum. She can be seen presenting BBC1's hugely successful Homes Under The Hammer and Martel's passion for property has seen her build her own family home, where previously only a cattle grid lay in Perthshire fields. She also hosts a Saturday morning radio show for Wave FM. Martel has presented for ITV's Lorraine, BBC1's The One Show and across BBC Scotland on both television and radio. Her debut novel Scandalous drew on her experiences as a showbiz reporter and was published by Penguin.

After training to be a lawyer at Edinburgh University Martel applied for The Sun's first graduate traineeship. She beat 3,000 hopefuls for a two-year apprenticeship which started at London's City University at its prestigious postgraduate print school, followed by training in Sydney and around the UK.

She is still called upon to interview world-famous celebrities for Lorraine – from Daniel Craig on the red carpet of the latest Bond premiere, to Harrison Ford upon his Star Wars return. Martel is an official Dundee ambassador, a proud redhead – and has passed the ginger gene to her boys. She married the first boy she kissed (it took him 20 years to ask her out) and they are expecting their third child.

Gabrielle Blackman - TV Presenter & Interior Designer

Gabrielle is proud to have worked with BBC1 DIYSOS since 2012 using her skills as a designer to transform the lives of families in need. Gaby is one of the country’s leading Interior Designers, working on beautiful homes both nationally and internationally. Recent projects have included everything from a Hong Kong penthouse apartment to a Sussex home by the sea. With twenty years experience at the top end of the industry, Gaby not only designs but builds for her clients, directing projects through from initial site visit and concept drawings to completion.

A dynamic, energetic presence on site, Gaby can hold her own in the hurly burly of life on a building site, because her knowledge and expertise means she can talk the trades language. For although Gaby loves the glamourous side of her job, she is far more often found with a hard hat on climbing a scaffolding ladder, or dealing hands on with solving design and build issues.

She was the designer on DIY SOS’s biggest challenges, including the RTS winning transformation of a whole street of houses in Manchester for Wounded Veterans (with a little help from Princes William and Harry!) and the RTS and NTA nominated build of a new community centre and boxing gym for the people of Grenfell Tower in London.

She has written for the Times, Guardian, Telegraph and Daily Mail. Good Homes Magazine.

Full line-up of speakers, schedule of masterclasses, workshops & panel discussions to be announced very soon!
