The brand new conference and exhibition promises to deliver guidance, inspiration and business services to women at any stage of their career or business journey.

Launched by Hub Exhibitions, Women in Business EXPO is a new free-to-attend event designed to provide an environment where women can learn, network and share experiences. The event, which will take place October 16-17 2019 at Farnborough International Conference and Exhibition Centre, Hampshire, will provide attendees with a range of talks and access to leading companies, which will be providing business, franchise and career opportunities along with support for future career moves.

Baroness Karren Brady will kick off the event on day one with a session on business and career development, drawing on her work as Vice Chairman of West Ham F.C, a Peer in the House of Lords and Small Business Ambassador for the Government. Star of The Apprentice, Karren is recognized as the ‘first woman in football’, having transformed Birmingham City Football Club, taking it from administration to the stock market during her time, the latter of which made her the youngest Managing Director of a PLC in the UK.

Lady Michelle Mone is set to open day two of the conference with a look at how she built her multi-million-pound lingerie business, Ultimo Brands International, from the
ground up. As a peer in the House of Lords, OBE recipient and Start-Up Business Tsar for the Government, Michelle is one of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs and is set to provide attendees with practical and honest business advice.

Michelle commented: “I’m delighted to be speaking at Women in Business EXPO. This event is so important to highlight and show how women of today can overcome the unique challenges faced in work and business, and provide the inspiration for a new beginning.”

Christie Day, Group Event Director for Women in Business EXPO said: “According to the Women’s Business Council there has been a ‘significant shift’ in the experiences of women in the workplace in the last five years. But there’s still challenges to be overcome. We want to empower women to confidently take the next step in their working lives, and to feel comfortable juggling the work/life balance. Whether you’re returning to work, planning the next chapter in your career, looking to start a business or considering franchising, we launched Women in Business EXPO with you in mind.”

Other inspiring speakers at the event include:

 Caprice Bourret, the supermodel turned highly successful entrepreneur will share her incredible experience building a global company and share tips for setting up a business in changing economic times.

 Cynthia V Davis, founder, and CEO of BAME Recruitment, will dig into the role female entrepreneurs play in being visible leaders and challenging the status quo with diversity

 Suzanne Burke, Head of Operations for the Office of the Small Business Commissioner, will be sharing her wealth of knowledge on the small business market in the UK and top tips to overcome some of the biggest challenges small businesses face around payments.

This year’s event will include dedicated areas on Women in Tech, Women in Franchise and Women in Finance. Attendees will also have access to a specialist CV and interview clinic, to help hone skills in applying for that next job, along with a franchise matchmaking service, which will provide advice on starting a franchise and suitable investments, and a focused wellbeing track, featuring top tips and interactive workshops to help improve wellbeing in the workplace.
