Get your tickets for North West Women’s Enterprise Day


Time is running out fast for your chance to grab tickets to the region’s biggest business event for women.

Women from across the North West will be heading to Cheshire East for

North West Women’s Enterprise Day on October 28 – which includes a full programme of activities planned for the gathering at Cranage Hall.

Tickets are still on sale but entrepreneurs are urged to get theirs quickly as the 250 places are selling out fast.

Those attending will get the opportunity to share best practice, explore new ways of doing business, access specialist support and advice and make new contacts.

Cheshire East Council is the main sponsor for the event, which last year received an Outstanding Impact Award from Enterprise UK.

Social entrepreneur Melanie Bryan, founder of WhyNotChange, is organising the enterprise day. Melanie and Cheshire East Council worked with a cross-section of business people to help shape the itinerary and select speakers and workshop topics.

The keynote speaker this year is Ruth Clemens, who is based in Poynton and runs The Pink Whisk. Ruth started her business after coming second in last year’s BBC television series The Great British Bake Off. 

Activities on offer this year include:

●          Speaker corner – talks from a range of high-profile speakers;

●          Workshop zone – 30-minute practical interactive taster sessions;

●          Living library – borrow a person for 15 minutes to benefit from their expertise;

●          Business surgeries – facilitated by a range of experts working in small groups to 

           address issues raised by delegates;

●          Hands on zone – practical demonstrations, tools, techniques and tips;

●          Artisans zone – enabling local artisans to showcase and sell their products;

●          Networking; and

●          All-day refreshments and lunch.

Councillor Jamie Macrae, Cabinet member with responsibility for prosperity, said: “This networking event is the perfect opportunity for women to come together to share their experiences, inspire others and develop new business relationships.

“Cheshire East Council is fully committed to supporting both new and established businesses as much as we can – something which takes on even more importance in the current economic climate.”
