About this Event

Join us for an online panel discussion hosted by our amazing Smart Works Leeds Chair, Helen Oldham, as we tackle topics around fashion, body confidence and how to come out of lockdown with confidence. It's becoming clearer everyday that life after lockdown is going to be very different to the life we had when we went into lockdown, and we're all navigating this new world together.

However, some things remain true: as women we are incredible, with huge potential and power that needs to be channelled.

So we've brought together an expert panel to discuss how a new approach to fashion, body positivity and appreciation can be cornerstones for all women. Our amazing line up of speakers includes a Body Confidence Coach, a Style Expert and a Silver Curve Model. This event will inspire, engage and ignite you into feeling passionate about what you have to offer and the way to present yourself to the world around you.
