Description

With a successful maiden launch in September 2018 with over a 100 women in attendance, and still going strong; and in June 2019 we held a seminar on Health and Wellness to encourage our women and show the importance and balance of good health in business or careers. We are happy to say we are again set to make this year’s autumn programme even more splendid. This year’s event is sure to see more ideas jumping out of women, lessons being learnt and more vendors on display.
