Our 4th Annual Women in Business Conference


Socially Shared are proud to present our 4th Annual Women In Business Conference. This popular event will consist of three inspirational speakers in the morning, a networking lunch and an opportunity for learning in the afternoon. This combination of inspiration, building relationships and providing learning opportunities, truly reflects the ethos of the Socially Shared Business Support Network.

Following the success of last years 'Author Interview Panel' we will be hosting another for this year's conference but this time a 'Creative Business Panel'. Interviewed by BBC Journalist, TV and Radio Presenter Joanna Tidman, who has also agreed to be our MC for the fourth consecutive year, we will have a panel of creative business owners who will be sharing their experiences and advice.

New for 2020... Knowledge Bank Sessions! At previous conferences during the afternoon we have provided delegates with the opportunity to learn about two business topics. This year we have enhanced our offer and all delegates will benefit from four knowledge bank sessions. In a series of four short talks experts will share their knowledge providing a valuable insight into their areas of expertise.

New for 2020... Young Adult Tickets (Age 16 - 21 years). With a growing number of young adults interested in entrepreneurship and starting their own business, we want to celebrate this by offering a discounted ticket to this audience.  It would be great to see some mother, daughters, aunt and nieces attending the conference this year.  

There will be plenty of opportunities for networking, with a welcome drinks reception upon arrival, mid morning and afternoon refreshment breaks, a networking lunch and then closing drinks with the speakers, panellists and knowledge bank experts at the end of the day.

All delegates will receive a free souvenir gift upon arrival and a complimentary conference programme, so as to stay informed of the running order for the day. All this is included in the price of the ticket along with free onsite parking, so we are sure you will agree the ticket price offers exceptional value for money.

In addition to the main conference programme there will be the chance to make new contacts in the 'Connections Zone' where people can highlight particular businesses they are wanting to connect with, and / or needing products or services from. All delegates will be able to advertise their business for free during the event, by displaying their business card on our 'Building Contacts Wall'.

We do hope you will join us for this year's event to meet women in business from right across Warwickshire and the West Midlands and to share in what is an inspiring, informative and thoroughly enjoyable day!


"Highly recommend! Attended my first conference today & wow it was amazing. The amount of inspirational women I met today and supporters for my charity The Luca Foundation was fantastic.
I am now signed up to Socially Shared too"
