Description

We bring to you our first ever two-day summer business school for working women in the UK.

ONLY 25 SPACES!

I AM MOGUL SUMMER BUSINESS SCHOOL is a two-day programme to support working women in the UK with their professional and personal development to ensure that you are taking charge in your career and life. Based on the information provided from the women who completed our annual women in the workplace survey we have created a tailor made programme of workshops, lectures. talks and seminars to help you develop on key skills that you need to advance in the workplace or in your own business.

This course is perfect for women who want to advance in their careers or lead a successful business by gaining new skills, insight and knowledge from qualified and experienced professionals, practitioners and entrepreneurs.

After this course you will be equipped with the knowledge, support and skill development to take the next steps in your careers or business whether that is more confidence to take on more projects, negotiating a promotion or deal, leading a team, networking and building relationships with Senior executives and clients or taking the first steps to start that side business or hustle.

A two-day programme (Friday 11th-Saturday 12th August) with the first day (11th August) being hosted by Clifford Chance in Canary Wharf and the Second day (12th August) hosted at our offices in Euston, London.

We have kindly been sponsored by Penguin Books who have given some reading materials for our syllabus. We provide all participants with recommended reading materials and podcasts for each session.

The in-kind support from Clifford Chance on the Friday has allowed us to subsidize the costs of the tickets for both days.

Once tickets are purchased all attendees will be sent a full agenda with timings and pre-reading materials.
