Empowering Women

Good news… Having sold out June’s Empowering Women event in just 5 minutes and 38 seconds, we have decided to run the event again, the week after on Wednesday 1st July. We’re incredibly fortunate to have such awesome speakers, that they’ve all agreed to talk at both the June and the July dates. #WeHaveTheBestSpeakers

We’ll start a little later than normal again, so we look forward to welcoming attendees from 9.15 to 9.45am. This time, we will run until around 12.30pm, as we want to include another speaker for you all. We’ve set out the agenda for you below and instructions for how to book your tickets!

The speakers on the day are as follows:

Helen Tite – she was so popular in January, we weren’t going to let her leave until she agreed to come back in June! Helen is the Wellness Anarchist, and runs the Core Health Consultancy. For those of you who were at January’s event, you’ll know what an incredibly inspirational force of nature she is!

Alison Dale – One of the subjects that we were asked for speakers to talk about was how to present. This could be in a meeting, in a pitch, or when giving a talk. This is right up Alison’s street. She’s the Senior Learning and Development Manager at Bishop Fleming and you’ll learn some great techniques from her talk. A big part of presenting is confidence, so we asked Alison to incorporate this into her talk as well.

Anna Lake – Table Discussion Leader – Anna’s a freelance marketing consultant, based in Tavistock. She’s enjoyed a rich career to date, working for a couple of huge brands in the Professional Services sector – BDO and Deloitte, where she was responsible for the ‘Exceptional Client Service’ agenda. She has since helped many other companies with their customer/client service and now runs Anna Lake Consulting. Anna will be talking about putting yourself into your customer’s shoes, and looking at what proactive steps you can take to improve your customer service.

Rachael Howourth – Rachael is a Director at Momentum South West, where she works with businesses who want to grow their sales revenue, productivity, profits and customer lifetime value. She delivers a blended approach of training, coaching and consultancy to help improve leadership and personal effectiveness, sales strategy and the sales process. Rachael will be talking about the area that was requested by most people at January’s event – Time Management. This is likely to incorporate elements of work/life balance etc.

Kamila Bielawska – Kamila is well known throughout the area as one face of the hugely successful Eddystone Media. If there’s a major event in Plymouth, there’s a great chance that Eddystone Media are there! They’ve achieved some incredible things, working on events on behalf of Plymouth Waterfront Partnership, RIO, the Royal William Yard, Event West and more recently, St Luke’s Hospice’s Elmer Trail. Kamila will be giving you advice over how to make your social media presence more authentic.

Hilary Cragg – As a Partner and practising solicitor here at Nash & Co Solicitors, Hilary has a particular interest in issues concerning elderly and vulnerable clients. She deals with all related legal matters, from Will writing and Lasting Powers of Attorney to care home funding issues and disputes about care. We often find that when we speak to successful business people, they don’t have a Will or Powers of Attorney in place to protect them and their family, should something unfortunate happen. So Hilary will be talking about planning for the future including various options for protecting those you love the most.
