Get a free one-month membership
To celebrate International Women’s Day, we’re offering women a free one-month hot desk membership when you take out a three-month membership. We have so many amazing female members but we recognise we can do a lot better when it comes to gender diversity.
Check out the benefits of becoming a member, or come join our next Women in Business meetup if you want to get a feel for our community.
Our upcoming dates and topics/speakers are:
5 May: Sophie Biggerstaff, retail consultant and business mentor
After 11 years of working in the retail industry, Sophie left the corporate world behind to form BYRCOLLECTIVE, a retail consultancy to help SMEs and freelancers capitalise on opportunities and maximise their profit.
Sophie will tell us what it’s like starting a business during a pandemic and offer her top tips for navigating a startup through lockdown and uncertain economic times.
2 June: Toni Kent, standup comedian and writer
After a decade working for Microsoft, Toni took the decision to become a freelancer. She’s now a speaker, compere, author and standup comedian and is passionate about encouraging people to face their fears in business and confront the issue of social mobility head-on.
In this month’s session, we’ll chat to Toni about why she left the corporate world, the challenges she’s faced throughout her career and her passion for stepping outside the comfort zone.
