Connecting Women in Business

As part of the FREE project an event was held in the rural town of Bakewell in the Peak District for female entrepreneurs.  The event was called Connecting Women in Business and gathered together over 20 women of all ages who had recently started or were thinking about starting their own business. It was a really special time where women with many different life experiences could come together to share inspiring stories and meaningful conversations.
Using the World Cafe Methodology, we considered, in small groups, ways to create and manage our networks; negotiate and market our products and ways to improve our self-confidence.
A good number of female entrepreneurs signed up to the FREE Circles, where participants meet in small groups to share their problems, opportunities and challenges in a safe supportive environment.  We are looking forward to supporting more rural women achieve their dreams, and have confidence in their own unique abilities.
