WoConnect – Women Who Lead
All women are leaders and have a sphere in which they can impact and influence. But how can we use our power to speed the process of equality in business?
Women Who Lead will shine a spotlight on some of the innovators and entrepreneurs who are breaking the mould for women in a range of industries.
Join us and celebrate the trailblazing women in business and modern-day suffragettes who are leading today’s charge for equality.
PLUS, the official launch of our brand new women in business network; WoConnect.
Jaz Ampaw-Farr – Resilience Ninja, International Speaker, TV Presenter, Fired by Lord Sugar & TEDx Talker
Sam White – CEO of Freedom Services Group
Elaine Clarke – CEO of Baa Bar Limited
Rosie Kenyon – Managing Director of Kenyons Limited
& Chaired by Maggie O’Carroll – CEO of The Women’s Organisation
Jaz’s story is one of growing up in the midst of most appalling abuse, poverty and hardship during which she encountered five teachers (and, importantly, one pimp) whose belief in her literally saved her life. She shares her fantastic journey of how saying yes first allowed her to progress from council estate and foster care to advising international governments on education policy. Both her (very) brief stint on TV’s The Apprentice and her career as a stand up comedian are good examples of this. And she shows that a human being can be subject to the worst depravities of her fellow humans and not only survive, but thrive – and do so without anger or bitterness.
& more speakers TBC.
