Life of a Lady Blog

This is the Lady Val blog. Though she is breaking tradition because only daughters of hereditary Peers can use their first name (eg Lady Diana Spencer) so by rights she should be known as Lady Corbett. But by Networkers and others she is know as Lady Val so she has given up  keeping a wary eye on the Tower of London.

Avon Empowering Women AwardsWhy is Lady Val she a Ladeee?

Because her MP husband was awarded a Peerage when he decided to vacate his seat after 18 years of hard slog (with no time off for good behaviour.). Unfortunately a title makes no difference when trying to get a table in a fully booked restaurant and is yet to get her upgraded on a flight, but I live in hope.

Lady Val’s blog is about her life and times – the people she meet, the things she thinks, the way of the world. Anything which takes her fancy and which (hopefully) you will find either interesting, entertaining or thought-provoking.

So the LIFE OF A LADY blog will connect with professional women, expound on lessons learned which could be useful to all of us and share snippets about people she’s seen, places she’s been and everything in between.

Though we all know women executives who pretend they have balls, most of...
