This year, to celebrate International Women’s Day, we will be holding a week of FREE events to support and promote female entrepreneurship. 

Be inspired by successful strong female leaders, improve your business with must-do masterclasses and build your network with women who mean business. 

Get involved in #IWD2021 and BOOK YOUR FREE PLACE BELOW


This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is particularly apt! You’re definitely being challenged in all aspects of your life. 

A challenged world is an alert world.

Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day. We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequity. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world. 

From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.
