Event description

Description

Join us at #BWSLiveEvent in Edinburgh, a day of business conversation and culture, and spend some time investing in yourself, your business and your career.

Hosted by STV newsreader Rachel McTavish we have a fantastic line up of speakers throughout the day giving advice on growing a business, improving your leadership skills and gaining confidence.

#BWSLiveEvent helps promote women in business and those looking to set up their own company. We have talks and discussions, focusing on organisational development, managing culture and change, coaching and leadership development. We will talk to some women that have climbed the career ladder and will share the obstacles they have overcome.

The time is right for women to be able to fully take up their role in organisations, responding to the Scottish Government’s 50/50 by 2020 initiative for board gender balance.

  • The #BWSLiveEvent is aimed at women in management, leadership or professional advisor roles within organisations, and women running their own businesses, new or established.
  • #BWSLiveEvent helps to encourage a pipeline of women to take the next step up in their careers.
  • #BWSLiveEvent is an engaging event and helps to develop women as they prepare to move into leadership roles, developing leadership capability for your career or for you to manage others in your own new business.
  • #BWSLiveEvent is a one day event, with informative speakers and discussions, offering women the opportunity to learn together and connect with other like-minded women in business.

Doors open at 9:15am close at 3:00pm you can come and go as you please or stay all day.
