Inspirational speakers, motivational talks, a marketplace and a day of networking with other entrepreneurial business women are what’s in store at L4N UK’s first ever conference on Friday 23rd September, 2016 at the Moorlands Inn, Halifax. “When you’re a woman, balancing just comes naturally. From organising the household, the children, the social life to running a business, women just do it and this is what inspired us to call our very first conference, Just Balance.” says Judith Wright, who has been director of L4N UK (formerly Ladies 4 Networking) since 2015.
L4N UK is dedicated to providing opportunities for women in business to network, be inspired, gain confidence, learn new skills and get support. There are now 9 groups which meet for brunch or lunch across the North West region, bringing women together in a friendly and supportive manner. Out of these friendships come ideas, partnerships and fresh perspectives on business issues which can help solve problems and drive growth.
The conference, on the 23rd September, will provide the perfect opportunity for business women to come together for inspiration and motivation and a fresh perspective on business issues.
The keynote speaker is Debra Searle MVO, MBE who, incredibly, rowed across the Atlantic in a small wooden boat. Debra speaks from the heart and with great humour about the strategies she used to keep going and now uses, in her business life, to help illustrate, in a very human way, what we are all capable of.
Also speaking at the conference will be the inspiring Deborah Ogden, a nationally respected speaker on Positive Impact and Presence. Her approach centres around increasing personal impact and making a positive, first impression.
Sharing the stage in what will be a truly inspirational day is Nicki Pattinson, a legendary sales and motivation speaker who is known for her indisputable and unmatched results with companies in the UK.
Judith Wright, a creative thinker and a practical, hands-on marketing expert will also address the conference. Judith, the author of ‘Proven Strategies for Success’, has helped 1000’s of businesses to grow and achieve their dreams and will be sharing her wealth of knowledge on the subject of work/life balance.
L4N UK have partnered with the charity MNDA (Motor Neuron Disease Association) to raise both money and awareness. A representative from the charity will provide details of the amazing work they do, and how people can get involved.
Motor neurone disease (MND) is a fatal rapidly progressing disease that affects the brain and spinal cord, attacking the nerves that control movement so muscles no longer work. It kills a third of people within a year and more than half within two years of diagnosis.
It’s a devastating disease that affects up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time and kills six people every day. There is no cure.
The MND Association is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland focused on MND care, research and campaigning.
Denise Davies, Head of Community Fundraising at the MND Association, said: “Without the amazing support of people like L4N UK, the MND Association simply would not be able to provide its vital support services, fund research to find a cure and campaign and raise awareness of MND. Together we are making a real difference for people affected by this devastating disease.”
L4N UK have also forged partnerships with Yorkshire Enterprise Network, Lambert Print & Design, Wright Angle Marketing and many more companies that provide support and services to entrepreneurs across the region.
The conference will feature a marketplace to give the opportunity for enterprising ladies to showcase their products and services and allow the L4N UK ladies to do one of the things they do best – shopping!
