Smith Partnership offer Summer Seminar for Women in Business!

Having recently celebrated the second anniversary of its Women in Business programme, Smith Partnership and its event partners are pleased to announce their Summer seminar, offering delegates the chance to pick up business development skills from professional trainer Martin Perry, on Tuesday 5th July 2016!

Claire Twells, Business Development Partner at Smith Partnership Solicitors said: “We are delighted to have been a Women in Business event partner for the last two years, offering a programme of vibrant professional activities to inspire and support all working women, whether they run your own business or have a key role in a larger business. We believe our speaker Martin Perry will provide some practical advice for our ladies to help manage their precious time more carefully. 

“In our experience running these types of events, the delegates really appreciate support from other like-minded business women to gain confidence and new skills to push their boundaries and set new targets – we hope this year’s events will help to achieve this!”

The Summer seminar will be held at Hoar Cross Hall Spa Hotel followed by a Wimbledon themed Afternoon Tea, with a luxurious range of handmade sandwiches and plenty of strawberries and cream!

The Women in Business team are also delighted to be officially welcoming their new Derby based charity for 2016 at the July event – Every Cloud, who raise money to buy special gifts for people who are undergoing breast Cancer treatment. One of the founders of Every Cloud Jude Weston and her colleague Gwen Hayward will be at the event to speak about this amazing charity and to share their stories.

Special thanks must also go to our new sponsor in 2016 Stratstone MINI Derby offering one lucky lady the chance to win free MINI hire for a week! The delegates just have to put their business card in a bowl to be in with a chance to be picked in the FREE draw. 

The Chamber of Commerce has been working closely with the three Women in Business partners, Hoar Cross Hall Spa Hotel, Smith Partnership Solicitors and FCM Associates since 2014, when the programme first launched on International Women’s Day.
