The organisers of the Women Installers Together (WIT) conference have announced that Maggie Alphonsi MBE will be the event's headline speaker.

The face of international women’s rugby and arguably one of the most well-known names in women’s team sports on the planet, Maggie represented her country an impressive 74 times, won a World Cup, and helped England win a record-breaking seven consecutive Six Nations crowns. In 2015, after retiring from rugby, Maggie became the first ever former female player to commentate on men’s international rugby when she was signed up by ITV for the Rugby World Cup.

The WIT Conference is the only event of its kind in UK and is a celebration of women plumbers succeeding. It is supported by several major companies in the plumbing and heating industry and is now in its third year.

Hattie Hasan, founder of Stopcocks and one of the event organisers, said: “This year’s conference looks set to be the best one yet. We’re delighted to welcome new sponsors and very excited that Maggie Alphonsi is going to share her stories with us".
