At NatWest, we recognise that Women make up 52% of the UK population yet only 20% run and lead their own businesses. Why is that? What are the barriers? Research has shown some of the barriers include, Lack of networks, lack of role models and a lack of self confidence & self belief.
To celebrate International Women's Day NatWest and our Focused Women Network are partnering with Justice Williams MBE and The Studio Venues Birmingham to bring you an informal event where we will discuss and celebrate what ground-breaking action is taking place to truly drive the greatest change for women.
The 2017 focus is "BE BOLD FOR CHANGE" and below is a taster of what you can expect on the day

There will also be two workshops for attendees to choose between -
Christine Charles on Everyday Mindfulness - Christine has put together a range of modules that are designed on principals of mindfulness / self awareness, aimed at bringing to the surface limiting beliefs and working through them to let go and create new unlimiting beliefs. These modules are designed to give you strategies to understand yourself and others, improve your relationships, find new clients and raise your performance. Christine will be delivering her first module called Who am I? This module aims for you to connect with your identity, purpose whilst working through your limiting beliefs – letting them go and creating healthy beliefs. This module is backed up with research, strategies & proven tools by practical psychologists.
Being Safe On Line - Detective Sergeant Gary Sirrell (West Midlands Regional Organised Crime Unit) and Helen Barge Owner/Director of Risk Evolves will deliver an informative presentation how to protect yourself from on-line cyber crime.
The UK's internet economy is one of the strongest in the world, international and domestic cyber criminals increasingly view UK-based businesses and private individuals as attractive targets for a range of cyber crime.
