Women Unlimited Conference Speakers & Sessions
How to create a sustainable business.
Julie Meyer is passionate about entrepreneurship – follow the entrepreneur is one of her favourite sayings. Julie believes (and we agree!) that it is the entrepreneur that will pull the UK out of the current recession as they are the only group who are currently focused on growth and development. Julie has helped some very successful organisations grow and develop in their early years including Skype and LastMinute.com. But she is not only focused on large businesses. Ariadne Capital, her current business, supports small and new start ups by advising them and helping them get funding, by bringing them together with entrepreneurial investors. She is also the founder of First Tuesday, one of the largest networks in the world and an innovation in networking when it first launched.
Julie’s session will discuss what it is that creates a successful business today in this current climate.
- How can you negotiate the twists and turns that are ahead.
- What is going to keep your business going?
- What is the DNA of a successful entrepreneur?
Balancing your business with your life.
Avril Carson is an exceptional speaker and has a gift for encouraging people to show up as their best selves and she has a talent for unlocking potential in communication, confidence, influence and true leadership. Her journey is startling in it’s normality. She began freelancing when her children were very young and managed to create a successful consultancy as they grew and developed. When she began, she knew nothing about how to create a business but as she floundered through those early days, she discovered that her model was very effective and she now advises others on how to start their own business.
Avril’s session will take an intelligent look at what is success and how you translate that into creating the right balance between your business and your personal life.
- How do you create more balance in your life
- What is success for you?
- Where do you fit in?
- How do you get out of the busyness cycle?
