Are you a business woman ready to take her business to the next level? NatWest Bank and Karen Burge have collaborated to bring you a morning of speakers looking at various aspects you consider when making ‘the big leap’. This free event will be packed with value, information and insights from experts in sales, HR, funding, mindset and PR.
"The advancement of female entrepreneurs is a £250bn opportunity for the UK economy. Access to funding, risk aversion, primary care responsibilities and perception of skills are among the barriers female entrepreneurs need to overcome. “The Rose Report March 2019"
Our speakers are:-
Karen has been an entrepreneur for over 30 years, and now as a Life Coach and Business Mentor works with entrepreneurs who are facing various challenges when trying to expand their business in an already full and frantic life. She will be talking about the mindset required to become a successful business woman and how often asking different questions can move you forward faster!
Islay is a public relations consultant with over 20 years experience working for and advising both organisations and individuals. Islay will speak about the Power of PR for growing businesses, demystifying what can seem like an overwhelming subject.
Sandra is a business adviser with over 25 years experience of setting up, running or working with SMEs. Her two pet hates are hard sales and poor sales simply because she believes that neither deliver a positive customer experience. Her presentation will focus on how to avoid both and – more importantly – look at the alternatives.
Gillian runs her own very successful business, Lending Made Simple. With 20 years of experience in building, acquiring and selling businesses she is perfectly placed to talk about the importance of a healthy cash flow. Gillian will explain the lessons she has learnt, how to prepare for cash flow issues that may occur, and the alternative funding that’s available when you’re ready to expand.
Theresa is Managing Director of Harris HR consultancy Ltd and she is an accomplished HR and Operations professional. She works with business owners to help them meet their legal obligations and to embed positive HR processes that reduce staff and workplace issues.Theresa will be discussing key factors that business owners need to consider if they are employing staff for the first time or growing their existing team.
