I fully support Gwen as a prospective Shrieval candidate. I think Gwen’s experience as a Past Master, Liveryman and Women in the City CEO will be hugely relevant to this potential role and she would do an excellent job at promoting the values and work of the City to a far reaching audience.
Jim Broomfield, MD, Brackley Industrial Maintenance Ltd, OX17

Oh my word Gwen Rhys founder of Women In The City must be the best-connected woman in London. She has done so much to support so many women – she’d be a fantastic choice for Sheriff. I’m not sure Sheriff of the City of London is the same a a Sheriff in the Wild West, but Gwen would be great at either.
Nick Levens, Managing Director, Life’s Kitchen Limited, EC4
I have know Gwen as both client and friend for over a decade, and in my opinion Gwen’s skillset makes her ideally suited to be a Sheriff of the City of London. Gwen is an outstanding communicator, operates with absolute honesty and integrity and is dedicated to helping others. It is a pleasure to offer Gwen my wholehearted support.
Cathryn Lyall, Co-Founder, Seismic Foundry, SE1
For over 15 years Gwen has championed the benefits of diversity in the City via her Women In the City programmes and I can attest to the impact this has had on the companies and people she has engaged with. She was also one of the first female members of the Glass Sellers and has been a longstanding supporter of the City Guilds. Gwen has integrity and energy in spades and will be a remarkable City of London Sheriff. Best of luck.
Julie Mangan, Company Secretary, Capgemini UK plc
Best of luck as you will be so brilliant at this.
Isabel Moesller, Markets & Global Sales Business Development Manager, Euronext, EC4
Gwen is an inspiration and a fantastic role model for future generations. Her experience, as well as forward-thinking outlook, will enrich the work of the Lord Mayor and benefit the business community. More leaders like her should be elected into office to drive the change urgently needed in the City.
Cllr Dilip Patel, Deputy Mayor of Havering IG8
Gwen you are a promising candate and I am sure you will make a difference. I can’t think of anyone more deserving than you .

Gwen, you gave me a lot of confidence, support and guiding advice when I was on the journey of my early days of building my entrepreneurship in London. Your advice and guidance truly set me on a success path – so very inspiring. Thank you. And, as a past temporary maternity leave cover at the Mansion House, (Events Officer), I can wholeheartedly say that you are the best candidate to give support to such a positive City of London infrastructure.
