Whether that’s running their own business, progressing in their current company, returning to work after having children, taking on a franchise opportunity or something completely different. We’re excited to bring Women in Business Expo to Manchester so that women in the region can benefit from the valuable insights and opportunities our speakers and exhibitors will provide.”
In addition to franchise, technology, finance and business services, Women in Business Expo North will also be focusing a series of seminars and workshops on wellbeing in the workplace. Providing education and insights on how to support and improve mental health in work.
