Fuelling Women's Ambition- 'from inspiration to investment'
Thu 8 December 2016, 09:00 – 14:00 GMT
Enterprise Europe Network in London is hosting a conference which will feature a range of business people, motivational speakers and influencers. The event will take the format of networking, presentations and panel discussion. Our aim is for business women to join together to engage, network and learn from one another and from a powerful line-up of speakers who will share their own experiences in their careers and businesses.
We have all been inspired at one point in our lives by someone whose passion and dedication makes us want to fight for what we believe in and achieve our goals. Therefore we wish for delegates to be inspired, take away ideas and encouragement from our event in order to take their careers or their businesses to the next level, helping them to become leaders within their own business communities and their organisations.
