“Our keynote speakers and panel are all outstanding examples of what Female entrepreneurs can achieve and our delegates must agree as the tickets are already selling fast. There was so much positive feedback after last year’s event, so we are working hard to raise the bar again. I can’t wait to see everyone on the 8th March, it’s definitely not one to be missed.”
