I’m very excited that I’m getting a day off my baby-wrangling duties to go to the Mumpreneur Conference! Maybe I’ll see you there?
The conference is on 18th September at The Heart of England Conference Centre near Coventry. I’ll hand over to Laura Rigney, one of the faces behind the conference and owner of Pitcher House.
The Mumpreneur Conference & Awards is an event that aims to recognise the achievements of the UK’s mumpreneurs and inspire more women into business. The day has been organised as a way for this unique community of mums to come together and celebrate the fantastic work and achievements of one another, no matter how big or small. The conference will support and celebrate mums who juggle family life with starting up or running a business, providing opportunities for the attendees to move forward in growing their business in a way that will fit around their family commitments.
What makes The Mumpreneur Conference different from other business conferences and events, is that this is organised by mother for mothers, ensuring their needs are met, with a suitable day and location to allow mums from around the country to attend, and with the days itinerary created to ensure the attendees get the best out of the day on both a personal and professional level.
We’ll be offering six seminars tailored specifically to the needs of mums juggling family life with running a business, and indeed run by Mumpreneurs. Attendees will be able to attend three of these seminars. The workshops are as follows:
– You Don’t Have To Be Superwoman to Achieve Your Goals
– Tax Tips and Accounting Accuracy for Mumpreneurs
– Simple Social Media Marketing
– Ten Things Every Business Owner should know about the Law
– Creating a Successful Website
– Sales: The 10 Commandments
We’re delighted to be joined by three guest speakers on the day. Millionaire Mumpreneur, Emma Wimhurst, will be talking to us about her journey as a Mumpreneur. Carmen MacDougall will be talking to the attendees with the aim of motivating us, and aiding us in building our confdence, with “The secrets to boosting your inner confidence and how to attract new business opportunities”. Our award ceremony will be opened with a short talk from Lisa Warner of Fink Cards, who’ll be talking to us about her experience of entering awards, and her experience of judging The Mumpreneur Awards.
This fantastic initiative is in its second year, and with tickets at just £20, you’d be mad to miss it. The ticket price includes all of the above, as well as lunch and a complimentary invitation to a charity event in the evening, the official launch for the Mums Mission calendar.

P.S. I’ll tell you more about the awards tomorrow.
