Event description

Description

Celebrate International Women’s Day with like-minded, ambitious women proving that you can actively pursue a dynamic career and have children. Our panel of experts unpack the mystery of how some women seem to ‘have it all’, with lots of practical advice and information on finance, legalities, job-seeking and running your own business. More than just industry experts, each of our speakers is an inspirational working mother running their own business. During this intimate event they will share the success and challenges of their own personal journeys.

Whether you’re planning children, returning to work or running your own business, this is an event not to be missed.

The panel will be followed by a casual high tea where you can network, speak directly with the speakers and share your own experiences.

This event will explore:

  • What your rights are on returning to work
  • How to make the right decisions for your family AND your career aspirations
  • Practical steps you can take to build your financial resilience over the short and long-term
  • How to plan for maternity leave and returning for work
  • How to start a business without compromising your family

Hear from legal expert Jessica Kerr of Sinclair and May, recruitment specialists Natalie Firth and Ainsley Johnstone from Think Talent and Rhiannon Robinson of Finance Women.
