Small business owners are invited to hear from inspiring female founders at our first Empowering Women in Business networking event in London.

Harpreet Kaur, the winner of The Apprentice and founder of her own dessert parlour business will be among the speakers at the event on 23 November.

Also joining the panel is Lucy Hitchcock, founder of a business that saw viral success in lockdown, and Merlie Calvert, founder of tech startup Farillio.

4 reasons to join our Empowering Women in Business event

1. Share stories and connect with a community

There will be plenty of time to meet with other like-minded business owners and share stories and experiences. We know it can feel isolating at times running a business, so we hope bringing this community together will help you feel inspired and supported.

2. Hear from inspiring women entrepreneurs

Harpreet Kaur, Lucy Hitchcock and Merlie Calvert all have unique insight into what it takes to run a successful business.

Harpreet is going to speak about her inspirational journey as a female entrepreneur, starting with Oh So Yum and going on to win The Apprentice. She said: “I can’t wait to be a guest speaker at the event to talk about what it means to be a female founder in 2022.”
