What our attendees are saying.

  • "I don't relate to business advice given by the likes of Elon Musk or Richard Branson. I respect and admire them as entrepreneurs, but their words don't empower me. Business advice from a woman on the other hand, does."

  • "For many women including myself self belief and confidence determines our success, self doubt kills. I've been working on changing this mindset. Events like this are definitely the way forward."

  • "It is really interesting to see the motivations, challenges and successes of other women. I naturally identify with them. I always find advice from women particularly inspiring."

  • "I was often in the situation where I'd get to the end of the meeting and no-one had made eye contact with me. It's time we changed this."

  • "Finally the spotlight on women! I was at times sidelined in meetings by investors wanting to deal with my male co-founder, which was incredibly demoralising and frustrating. We need more events like this. It gives you that feeling of "I can do it too". Confidence is a big issue amongst female entrepreneurs."
