Blackburne House Women’s Centre is to host its first annual “Women Working It” conference to motivate and inspire women in their professional and personal ambitions on Thursday, 25 April 2013 at 11:00 a.m.   

Open to the general public, the event is expected to draw women in business, aspiring female entrepreneurs, Blackburne House alumnae as well as local university students.

On this year’s panel, Blackburne House will welcome Sharon Hilditch MBE, Crystal Clear International, Elaine Cunningham, Elaine Cunningham Interiors, Denise Harris, SK Events and Sheila Benson, Pruno Limited.

Zoe Humphries of Networking Mums will facilitate a networking session following the panel at 1pm. 

In a Loose Women format, these four leading business women from a cross-section of sectors will be sitting down on the panel at the Women Working It conference to discuss the real story behind their rise to success, building their brands from ground up, challenges they faced and reveal the secrets to success.

 “Women in leadership is on the rise globally,” explained keynote speaker for the conference and CEO of Blackburne House Claire Dove, MBE.  “This event creates a unique vehicle for women to collaborate, not compete. ”

Delegates will have the opportunity to take part in a Q&A session and the panel discussion will be followed with a speed networking session hosted by Networking Mums.   The event is open to the general public.  Tickets are limited and priced at £10 in advance and £15 on the day of the event.   Registration opens Monday,  March 17 on the Women Working It event page on facebook.

For over 30 years, Blackburne House has championed women in Liverpool.  Through education and enterprise, it has created a unique, supportive community that nurtures women of different backgrounds, cultures and capabilities and helps them develop on a practical, personal and professional level.   

The Women Working It Conference is a first for Blackburne House.  Proceeds will go directly to support Blackburne House, a non-profit training and education centre for women.

Blackburne House builds confidence and skills in women who will make a positive difference in their community.  Every woman can – and should – have access to the opportunity to learn, improve their situation and increase her sense of independence at any age.
