Female Founders Growth Conference

Timings: 9.30am – 4pm followed by a networking event.

It’s been a tough couple of years, and we may have tough times ahead, so The Women’s Organisation is here to support Female Founders to grow and scale up their businesses.

We know that there are barriers to business growth, particularly for women, so we want to find ways to overcome these.

We can support female founders via conferences like this, opportunities to get fully funded support from our business advice team, and access to a wide range of training and development opportunities.

Topics covered at the conference include:

• How to think and plan strategically for future growth.

• How to secure finance and investment to grow your business.

• How to expand your business through recruitment.

• How to put your business on the map through sales, marketing & promotion, and strategic networking.

• How to build your personal and business resilience.

The day will be a mix of presentations, round table discussions, panel discussions, and interactive activities.

We have a fantastic and diverse panel of expert speakers and facilitators lined up for the conference which will be revealed in the run-up to the event.

Guest Speakers: Clare Bowers & Carolyn Whitehead, Co-founders of Leading Ladies In Business

Clare Bowers:

"I left school at 16 to join the Royal Navy as a Marine Engine Mechanic, and I spent 4 years enjoying RN life. I came home and started my journey as a mum whilst training within schools to deliver social, emotional, and behavioural support to students. I went on to further studies to qualify as a counsellor and then a psychotherapist. The Leading Ladies in Business community was created in 2018 after meeting so many incredible women in business who all understood the value of networking."

Carolyn Whitehead:

"After qualifying as a teacher I spent years working within the school setting as a classroom teacher, but also studying and qualifying as a SENCO. After my third child, I founded the community interest company Beautiful New Beginnings. BNB supports and empowers parents and carers from pregnancy to school age with a range of classes and courses. Together with Clare, we founded LLIB to share that empowerment in the business community."


Led by The Women’s Organisation this event is part of our business support programme, part-funded by the European Structural Investment Fund which offers FREE advice and guidance to those living in the Liverpool City Region.
