Celebrate Women in Business and how far we have come to move towards equality. Our event will inspire and educate with excellent networking.

We are again delighted to celebrate this important annual occasion as we continue to push forward showcasing some of the amazing women in our community. This one day event shines a light on the continued progression woman are making to #embraceequality with progressive men’s support!

Block your diary for a day of education, inspiration and excellent networking on March 8th 2023, at 10am.

We will start the day with:

Aysha Iqbal, the founder of Wizz Media, is a media communications expert and coach, having spent much of her career working for BBC/ITV News as an anchor journalist. She will deliver a masterclass on how to engage with the media, and how small businesses can utilise PR opportunities.

Aysha now coaches her clients to master their communication skills and shows them how to engage with the media effectively. Her clients have been featured on mainstream TV, in the National press and in magazines and podcasts.

We’ll then break for networking and coffee.

Then we will hear from Nisha Menon from Jack and Chill on how the post covid changes have helped her family to embrace equality.

Our sponsors, Natwest, will also talk about the services they provide for small businesses.

There will then be the option to join Esther Kyerimir, a local bookkeeper with a passion for Xero and the power of the software, in a workshop training session on using Xero to automate invoices and bills, reconcile your bank transactions, and get up to date reporting on your financial performance. Get insight on the business plans and add-ons Xero offers, so you can choose a plan that’s right for you.
