London, March 14, 2011. After much anticipation, we are SO excited to be bringing you our 3rd Annual Conference – Ready to Take on the World (and after this conference, we promise you will be!). Why this theme? I believe that 2011 is a year of possibilities. It’s a year of change. And it’s a year of opportunity. We’ve called this year’s theme Ready to take on the World, because we think 2011 is all about standing firm and being strong. The speakers that we have this year have all taken the the world by storm and created the lives and businesses that they want.
You’ll have the opportunity to learn what they did and how they did it. They will share with you not only their stories and experience, but give you an insight into what worked for them, what didn’t work for them and most importantly, what you can take away and apply in your business. They will inspire, educate and motivate you to take on the world.
Are you ready?
We absolutely guarantee that you will learn things that will make a difference- but you will also HAVE FUN! I don’t want to go to conference that’s boring and don’t think you should either! So while you’ll be learning, we have a few surprises in store to make this conference, like no other conference that you have ever been to. A spa for the mind was how one of last year’s delegates described the conference and this year will be too.
So who are these fantastic speakers?
Jessica Huie: For some people, life’s obstacles become their catalysts for success, and the award winning inspirational Entrepreneur Jessica Huie, is such a person. Jessica launched color blind cards after spotting a huge gap in the market for ethnically diverse greeting cards. Her product is now in 120 stores in the UK and the largest card distributor in the US is rolling them out nationwide. As if that’s not enough, she has her own 6 figure PR business that she launched in 2008. I think it’s safe to say, we can learn a lot from her!
Lisa Irlam: Lisa Irlam invented Poolmate with her husband and launched her business in November 2009 to create electronic training aids for swimming, building on her personal interest in the sport as an amateur triathlete. Since that launch they have managed to sell over £1m of product and are now set to see explosive growth.
Rachel Elnaugh: Rachel will be very well known to you as the entrepreneur who created the market leading experiences brand Red Letter Days at the age of 24 – which she grew from nothing, on a shoestring budget, into a £multi-million turnover household name. She is upfront about her entrepreneurial highs and low and now spends her time sharing her expertise and knowledge to help small business owners get it right first time. She now mentors small business owners and helps them achieve massive success.
Tamsin Fox-Davies is the founder of Enthuse Marketing and was one of our mentors at the Women’s Enterprise Day that we held at the British Library in November. The feedback from the delegates was so fantastic that I thought she would be a perfect addition to the conference. With over 10+ years experience and hundreds of clients, Tamsin has a passion for helping small businesses by providing expert advice and support for entrepreneurs who want to do their own marketing with professionalism and style.
Lara Morgan was the CEO and founder of Pacific Direct (luxury hotel toiletries). She started the company as a sole trader back in 1991, and sold a majority share holding of the company for £20 million in 2008 and is now working with other businesses to help them achieve similar success.
Stephanie Davies is a Director of Laughology. Laughology is based around helping individuals and organisations to look at challenges in a new light using humour to enhance your emotional intelligence, well-being & get better results in your business.
Isis Turner is a professional speaker after having earned her stripes as a senior sales and relationship development manager, she has now turned her hand to inspiring and educating women to know themselves and achieve more as a result. She will help you be clearer on your strengths and how you can apply those in your business.
Elizabeth Mee is a qualified lawyer and ran her own employment-law practice for 16 years before deciding to venture on a different path in life. She has now been performing stand-up comedy for three years and reached the final of last year’s Funny Women Awards.
