Since their get together last January we have noticed lots of networking/support groups aimed at business women and entrepreneurs springing up in north London. There are advantages to networking in small targeted groups but if you would like to spread your wings a little further come along to this event where all groups will be invited to come together to explore extended mutual business benefits.
During the current economic climate the challenge for businesses and entrepreneurs to succeed has become even more of a test so individuals need to keep that edge to succeed and a little inspiration can go a long way… Our headline speaker, Sally Preston, Babylicious, has faced similar challenges creating her business as a working mother and she will share her best tips and secrets of success with you. Sally has scooped many awards for the business in the few short years it has been running including the HSBC start up award and the IDG award for ‘Outstanding Small Business’. As well as these credentials Sally was appointed to the DTI’s influential Small Business Council advising the government on policies affecting small businesses and how they operate.

Janette Faherty, CEO, Avanta will provide the introduction including background information for the day’s events and inspiration from her own experiences building up Avanta, a nation-wide, award-winning training organisation.
