Women Unlimited have put together an amazing lineup for our second annual conference for International Women's Day on March 8, 2010.
We are using this opportunity to help you celebrate and grow your business. This year's theme is called Stepping into Success. It's about creating action that generates results. It's about deciding that you are worth investing in. And it's about enjoying the journey.
Liz Warom: Founder and CEO of Temple Spa
This year we are thrilled to welcome Liz Warom the founder of Temple Spa. Liz will share some of her story and undoubtedly inspire us with her enthusiasm, wit and anecdotes drawn from her many and varied experiences. Prior to launching Temple Spa, Liz worked with Richard Branson to launch Virgin Vie and worked closely with Anita Roddick at the Body Shop. Come along and hear all about Liz's journey and we guarantee that you will come away inspired.
Emma Wimhurst: Seven Steps to Success
Emma was the founder of Diva Cosmetics. She created bespoke cosmetic packages for big name brands like BHS, Asda and Claires Accessories after she saw a gap in the market. Emma has now written the book BOOM! which outlines her seven steps to Success and how you can accelerate your business.
Camila Batmanghelidjh: Building a business with a conscience
Camila Batmanghelidjh is the founder of two children charities - The Place 2 Be (now national) and Kids Company, where she currently works with some of the most traumatised young people living in London. Her story is an amazing one of overcoming adversity to creating an organisation that makes a difference every day. Prepare to be inspired.

Our panel includes Liz Jackson, Secret Millionaire and CEO of Great Guns Marketing and Antonia Chitty of ACPR and author of Family Friendly Working; Hannah McNamara, Managing Director of HRM coaching and SME Academy; and Jo Behari, Managing Director of Home Jane and last year's Enterprising Women Award winner and Precious Young entrepreneur winner.
