About Ladies Lunch Clubs

The Ladies Lunch Clubs have been successfully running since 2005. The hosts help to introduce the sponsors and new and existing members of the Ladies Lunch Clubs to other relevant members of the group.

Like so many other attendees of the Ladies Lunches, the hosts are also business owners. Their business experience means they can offer you support or answer any questions you might have regarding business or networking.

Introducing your hosts


Lara Squires

Founder & Host // Consortium

I set up the Ladies Lunch Clubs back in 2005, after starting networking in Tunbridge Wells and seeing an opportunity for a Ladies Lunch Club. The Tunbridge Wells lunch was launched with co-host Claire Burroughs of Ansacom in July, followed closely by Eastbourne in September 2005.

In 2009 I decided to continue running the lunch in my free time, and after moving to Worthing in late 2011 I thought it would be good to build local contacts, so I set about launching Worthing’s lunch in my free time. In 2013, the Brighton & Hove lunch was launched with an annual sponsor.


Eastbourne Host // Humphrey & Co

Humphrey & Co is a medium-sized accountancy firm based on the south coast with offices in Eastbourne and Hove.

Managers Emily and Lyndsey began hosting the Eastbourne Ladies Lunch Club at The Grand Hotel in July 2016 and will continue to host and sponsor the lunches throughout 2017. They like to make everyone at the lunch feel relaxed supporting the Ladies Lunch ethos of “Good Food, Good Company”.
