On Friday, 29 May I did something I never imagined I would do…
I co-hosted RE-DEFINED - our first ever, virtual conference for female founders and women in business, in partnership with the fantastic Karen Stenning, Founder of Absolute Alchemy.
You won’t know it but I am a total laggard when it comes to adopting technology. I still haven’t figured out how to save songs onto my MP3 player and always seem to struggle using Google Docs, so the fact that I actually managed to co-host a virtual conference is a genuine feat for me!
Karen and I were joined by 87 delegates who came together from across the UK to learn from a diverse line-up of 11 impressive speakers - exclusively female founders and women in business - who all shared honest accounts of the ups and downs of their entrepreneurial journeys.
As well as learning new ways to improve and grow our businesses, we discussed topics which are still, sadly, taboo such as learning from our mistakes, dealing with burnout and menopause.
A BIG THANK YOU to our talented speakers and to our generous partners - Barclays Eagle Lab, Let's Do Business Finance, Hatch and Shake It up Creative who all helped make the conference become a reality. We also succeeded in raising over £155 for RISE - the Sussex-based charity supporting people who have been affected by domestic abuse and violence.
Karen and I are now planning our next move...
