On Friday the 6th of May 2015 LBN held a conference for local business women at Kendal College, working in partnership with Cumbria University and Cumbria Growth Hub. Over 100 delegates joined us for the event and the feedback we received is that it had been both an informative and inspiring day!
The aim of the conference was to inspire women in business to achieve their personal and professional goals and an accomplished line-up of speakers and workshop leaders generously shared their expertise to show delegates how to unlock their potential.
It was aimed at both new and aspiring business women, as well as those who had been in business for some time and there was a wide range of workshops on offer focusing on topics such as selling, use of social media, creating a vision, positive thinking, creating compelling goals, growing and developing your business and work/life balance.
Our keynote speaker for the day was Isla Wilson of Ruby Star Associates, who gave us her top tips for developing our creativity and building a business of our dreams.
The conference was planned and organised by Debra Jessett and Gail Knopfel of A Positive Partnership working in conjunction with five students who were in the final year of their degree course in business studies at Cumbria University. The event was sponsored by Cumbria Growth Hub which enabled free admission for all delegates.
