The Women’s Organisation, as well as having our home in Liverpool, also has a base in Manchester with Ada House and two fantastic Business Advisors Ameena Ahmed and Mike Marsden. Last week, Ameena had the opportunity to impart some of her business wisdom at a brand new event in the heart of Manchester.
Forever Manchester Women held at an event at Great John Street Hotel, and brought together women in business from across the Greater Manchester region. Ameena, an Associate Business Advisor spoke, alongside Jean Bills, Forever Manchester Women’s Head of Business Development.
Ameena is one of our Associate Business Advisor at has had 10 years of experience working in the charitable sector and has a different approach to her work by connecting and communicating using a holistic approach and in particular the soft skills that women have. She reminded the women that they are capable to help change history.
After Ameena’s talk, Jean Mills spoke about the community women-led groups that Forever Manchester has recently supported, such as Gorgeous Gorge Hill. This is a group of four women who made a change in their neighbourhood by planting flowers, painting bollard and helping to make their neighbourhood a more attractive place; ‘They really make a difference to the community and get people talking and involved in continuing to improve their area.’
