The Women in Social Housing Networking Yorkshire and Humber branch are pleased to invite you to our latest workshop titled 'Step Out and Speak Out' which will cover the following topics:

  • Opportunity generation 
  • Entrepreneurial top tips

We are excited and very lucky to be joined by Claire Young, made famous by her role as the highly driven runner up of series four of ‘The Apprentice’ where she was dubbed a ‘Rottweiler’ by Lord Sugar for her tenacious approach in the boardroom and drive not to quit. She beat 40,000 candidates to reach the final and this experience inspired Claire to set up her own business ‘School Speakers’. It is now the UK’s No 1 speaking agency working with schools, colleges and universities to provide talks to students.

Claire works within the media as a journalist & radio presenter in addition to advising the government on projects which help young people and women, into business.  She has been nominated for the Queen’s Enterprise Award twice.  In 2015 she was named ‘Business Person of the Year’ at Wakefield District Business Awards, has won the coveted ‘Forward Ladies Women in Business Award’ 2015 for her business School Speakers and a ‘Mumpreneur 2015’ award. She combines her busy career with being a mum to her daughter Eva. To find our more about Claire please visit her websites:;
