A host of 30 minute workshops for first steps to business growth

All workshops are 30 minutes and you won’t have to sit through a sales pitch.  We ensure every workshop delivers practical advice, some include exercises to complete and others are simply ‘how to’ sessions.   There are dedicated note pages in the back of your ‘Enterpriser Handbook’ and the full agenda of workshops will be announced before the show so you can plan your day.

Be inspired at our 'business story stage'

A brand new element to the show.  We know many of you have awesome, empowering and inspirational stories to tell and we also know you want to hear them.  So we have created an ‘open mic’ story stage.  It will be facilitated on the day but the idea is anybody can come and have 10-15 minutes to tell their story to whoever wants to listen.  More on this coming soon.

1-2-1 advisory corner

Another brand new addition to the events is free, 1-2-1 advisory sessions by expert business and career mentors, entrepreneurs and coaches.  We know many of you are at the very start of your journey and need an ear to lend to get clarity on your idea, options or business.   This will be facilitated on the day and more info will come soon. This is priceless advice and is not to be missed.

Another brand new element we’ve added as a result of feedback from the previous show.  If you would like to explore the option of finding a co-founder to launch your business with, or run a start-up and are thinking a partnership could work well, then come to this ‘networking’ session specifically for those thinking about this route.  The time of this session will be in the agenda once live nearer the event date.

inspirational Q&A panel

We are busy getting together an expert, inspirational and awesome panel of entrepreneurial women who have been there, done it and succeed to where many of use aspire to be.
This is an opportunity for you to ask questions to these experts about their experiences, tips and challenges they have overcome.  These questions can be unique to you, as we are sure many others in the audience will be feeling the same.
