All around the world, International Women's Day represents an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women while calling for greater equality. It is celebrated on March 8th every year and thousands of events happen on and around this date to mark the economical, political and social achievements of women all round the world.
The theme of this years International Women's Day is 'Make it Happen'. With this in mind, we are delighted to announce that Alissa Koopal of Izzy Melody Limited will be our guest speaker at our Business Club Networking event. Tipped as one of The Telegraphs ‘Female Entrepreneurs to Watch in 2015’, Alissa is the brains and determination behind the product I.M. Babybangle and we invite you to come and hear all about how she made it happen as she shares her amazing journey with us.
Hear how Alissa has managed to secure over 20 National and International stockists for her product, including key retail players such as John Lewis and Mothercare. She will be telling us about her journey from idea and concept, through to manufacture and distribution. All this as well as juggling being a mum and an all-round inspiring woman who is taking time out of her busy schedule to join us for this not to be missed event.
This FREE event will also offer attendees the chance to network, and an opportunity to speak to members of The Women's Organisation staff for information on our advice and support. It is open to women who are running or are thinking of starting a new business. It will be held at:
