Debi Hawkins, chairman and co-ordinator of WorcNet, said: “The event aims to connect, support and inspire women in business and those who may be thinking that this is their year to take that step into self employment.”

The conference will bring together speakers who will address some of the major hurdles facing small businesses today. Booking is essential and the ticket price of £35 includes the workshops and lunch. For more information, contact Debi on 07966 105540 or email
