FSB Women Cornwall Conference

DATE AND TIME Tue 27 February 2018 10:00 – 16:00 GMT Venue: Hotel Tresanton 27 Lower Castle Road Saint Mawes TR2 5DR Cost £25 We start with a morning of inspiration from incredible business women such as Jill Stein OBE of Padstow’s famous Seafood Restaurant and Amanda Winwood of Made for Life Organics. They will be talking about how they got to do what they do now and how they also started to work together. Other high-profile speakers are to be announced soon (watch this space). After a special networking lunch in the restaurant we will break into two smaller workshops. Then we will swap so you don’t miss a thing but smaller groups mean you will maximise interaction with our speakers and really get the benefit of the wisdom on offer to take away some personalised practical ideas. There will be plenty of time to make new contacts and perhaps even discover new business partners or supporters from circles that you may not normally come across.
