Now, imagine if you could put together your perfect table of female entrepreneurs to give you advice for your business. Who would you invite? These are our picks and we would like to invite you to come along and engage and network with these fantastic ladies. They are all leaders in their market sectors and will each be hosting a table. This means, you will have the chance to dine and engage with one of these entrepreneurs on a personal level. What are you going to talk about? You decide!
If your first choice entrepreneur is sold out, you will be able to request your second and third choice of entrepreneur and we will try to accommodate your choice as best we can. There will also be open networking with the entrepreneurs before and after the meal, so you will still have a chance to meet with all of the entrepreneurs at this time. We suggest an early arrival to give yourself maximum networking time.
Sue Stockdale, the author of Secrets of Successful Women Entrepreneurs: How Ten Leading Business Women Turned a Good Idea into a Fortune will also be sharing with us her learning from interviewing the female entpreneurs in her book.
Our original lineup sold out two weeks ago. So we have decided to open up another table. We have the amazing Gita Patel, founder of Stargate Capital (she also spoke for us at our launch event last year) and Laura Tenison from JoJo Maman Bebe. We expect these new seats will go quickly, so make sure you book quickly if you would like to join us.
Many thanks to the Business and IP Centre at the British Library for supporting this fantastic event
