Successful Women in Business Network Annual Conference and Awards Launch

  • George Albert Hotel & Spa DT2 9PW (map)

We are excited to announce the release of Early Bird tickets for our 2019 Conference and Awards Launch.

Where better to spend International Women’s Day than in the company of some amazing women (and men) from across the South West, listening to great speakers and celebrating the wonderful successes of women just like you.

The campaign theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is a call-to-action for driving gender balance throughout the world.

Balance is proven to drive a better working world, so join us and let's all help create a #BalanceforBetter.


This year we’ve got workshops to inspire, support and motivate you as well as the launch of the 2019 Successful Women Awards, back to showcase the work of women across the South West.

There will be an opportunity on the day to sign up for Finance and IT advice provided by the Dorset Growth Hub, as well as taking part in 2 of these fantastic workshops:-

Scaling Up – Process Definition is the magic key to sustainable business growth. Sam Acton and the Domestic Angels Franchising team know lots about process definition and in this fun workshop they will introduce you to the key skill of ‘step and task’ so that you too can prepare your business for growth without spending a small fortune.

Learning from the Future: an essential business skill - Mary Hykel-Hunt will lead a 30 minute workshop about a little-used part of your mind that can boost your business – starter hints provided!

Create a business message that speaks to the people you want to work with. - Award winning public speaking coach Bev Hepting returns with yet more easy to apply advice to help your business stand out from the crowd.

Small steps toward successful personal and professional change - Gwen Cavill has years of experience of supporting senior leaders in driving change, let her help you make the difference in your business/personal life.

The Impostor Syndrome - Do you often have thoughts that you aren't good enough, that you don't deserve that job or success and that it is only a matter of time before someone finds you out to be a fraud?  If so you are not alone.  The Imposter Syndrome is experienced by many very successful people, in fact success and competence go hand in hand with this phenomenon. Karen Jamieson will be delivering this workshop, helping you to find out more and giving tips on how to manage it?

The very latest social media hacks - constant changes to the algorithms of social media platforms can frustrate even the savviest of business owners. Let Trudy Ritsema of Social Media for the Employed help you find your way through the latest changes and get tips to stay on top of all those changes!
