Event for aspiring businesswomen

The ‘Woman Who Do’ programme, which offers expert help and support to women who want to develop a new business idea, will be holding an exciting networking event in October.

Susan Hallam, who is one of the Uk’s leading digital marketing experts, will be talking about her own business journey, which led her to create her company Hallam Internet.

Previously a Senior Lecturer in computing at Nottingham Trent University, Susan has held senior marketing roles at BT and Capital One. She is also winner of a 2012 Vistage UK Speaker Award and is a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists. In 2013, she received the Freedom of the City of London.

Pam Burrows, who runs her own company Satori, will also be holding a seminar entitled ‘Confidence and Motivation’, in which she will deliver some powerful strategies for increasing personal resilience and positivity. The session will cover:
•Self-limiting beliefs and how to slay them
•How to switch on a confident state of mind
•How to balance business success, life and your own wellness
•How to ‘power up’ as a woman in the business world

Pam will be weaving a mix of the best confidence methods from ancient to modern, including Neurolinguistic Programming, yogic breathing and mindfulness techniques.

The event will take place at the Summit Centre, Pavilion Road, Kirkby, NG17 7LL on Friday 17 October 2014 from 9.30am to 2pm. It is open to any women who are either considering a business idea, or who are running an established business that they want to develop. The evening will be followed by a series of workshops scheduled for 5, 12 and 19 November.

Cllr Kate Allsop, Portfolio Holder for Economic Regeneration at Mansfield District Council said: “This is an excellent opportunity for entrepreneurial women in Mansfield and Ashfield to learn from leading business women about their experience of developing their business ideas, as well as picking up tips and strategies for developing confidence.

“The ‘Women Who Do’ programme gives women access to a range of support, including one to one mentoring and expert help with creating a personalised development plan. If you have a business idea and need help to take it further, get in touch with the Ashfield and Mansfield Shared Regeneration Team.”

Cllr Jim Aspinall, Portfolio Holder for Prosperity at Ashfield District Council added: “I urge local women who are interested in business to take advantage of this well established programme which aims to equip ambitious women with further skills and tools to get ahead in business.”
