International Women’s Day

2016 sees the launch of an online event that celebrates International Women’s Day in an entirely different way to the live events we used to run between 2006 and 2012.

It’s a Blogging Challenge for International Woman’s Day offered by our sister site Attract Readers. We are also supporting the charity Womankind and their ‘Share a Story’ initiative with this event.

“One word- fantastic!” “Very successful! Everyone enjoyed it and was very enthusiastic- very inspiring speakers”, “Focused, informative and thought provoking”, “Excellent. Inspiring and made me think. A good mix of people”

These are comments from our International Women’s celebrations. In 2006 we launched the only independent celebration open to business women and this soon became the biggest independent event in the Thames Valley!

“The event was a fantastic celebration of women in business and proved that by connecting and supporting each other, we can all achieve our goals. I felt really inspired by the speakers, and the issues they discussed were relevant both to women and the broader business community.” Rita Adams A.R.M. Credit Control
