Event details

During lockdown, over 200 women leaders of SMEs have undertaken our Women in Leadership course.

This event is an opportunity to hear from some inspiring female leaders, a celebration of their achievements, especially during the pandemic, and for many will be the first opportunity to meet and network.

We will also be showcasing our micro-accredited and short course offer for other SME leaders (of any gender!) and those who want to upskill their workforce.

This support is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund
