Conferences for Business Mums

Ready to get our of the house and meet some business mums face-to-face?

It’s hard to believe sitting here at the beginning of August, but it won’t be long until Autumn. And that means it’s conference season!

(Well, if you’re a mum in business, anyway!)

So here’s my list of the conferences coming up in 2011/12. If I’ve missed any, please drop me a comment and I’ll add them to the list. I’ll also post more details about each when they are closer.

Mumpreneur Conference – Sunday 25th September 2011, Heart of England Conference Centre, Meriden Road, Fillongley, CV7 8DX (near Coventry)

BusinessMums Summit – Monday October 10th 2011, Thistle Hotel, Brighton, East Sussex

Business Mums Unite Conference and Exhibition – Wednesday 19th October 2011,  Albert Hall Conference Centre, Nottingham

Cambridge Business Mums Conference – Saturday 11th February 2012, Meadows Community Centre, Cambridge

In the last year I’ve been to the Mumpreneur Conference, the Cambridge Business Mums Conference and of course Cybermummy. It makes such a difference to get out and talk to like-minded mums and to put faces to the names you meet on Twitter and Facebook. So if you’re wondering whether to go, definitely give one (or more!) a try.

BusinessMums Summit: Scholarships now available

Mums in business, plus those looking to start up, have the chance to apply for a scholarship to The BusinessMums Summit in Brighton, 10th October 2011.

The BusinessMums Summit is in its second year, and is an event for mums keen to launch their own enterprises, those already running new start-ups, directors of highly successful, global enterprises and everything in between. Organisers Suzanne Borrell, Nicky Chisholm and Antonia Chitty explain about the scholarship scheme, “We know that it can be hard to invest in the business training you need when you are starting a business and supporting a family. That’s why this year we’ve created the BusinessMums Summit Scholarship Programme. In 2010, some lovely business owners sponsored a few people to attend the conference. This year we have expanded the programme and made it open to as many people as possible. In this way we hope that it won’t just be mums with great connections who get a sponsored ticket but those who need it most and maybe wouldn’t shout out and ask.”

The  event has already attracted top speakers including Kate Garraway and Laura Tenison of JoJoMamanBebe. Attendees will be able to network, get practical help from experts, learn business skills, set goals, celebrate with champagne at the ‘mum and working’ awards and leave with a plan to drive their business forward.

To apply for a scholarship just write about why you need one and how you feel the conference could help you start or grow your business and email to antonia@businessmumsconference.co.uk. All entries must be in by 1st July 2011. Scholarship winners will be announced by 1 August. See www.businessmumsconference.co.uk/scholarships/ for full details, terms and conditions.

Antonia Chitty adds, “For every company we get on board to sponsor a ticket, we’ll match it with another sponsored ticket paid for by the BusinessMums Summit. We’re thrilled to have sponsors so far including Become a Mumpreneur, Tots to Travel, Baby Signing Mummy and BabyTod. We’re committed to getting as many mums as possible to this event as we know the benefits and breakthroughs experienced by those who attended in 2010.”

There are still opportunities for businesses who would like to become a sponsor and help mums break through barriers to starting or growing her business – contact antonia@businessmumsconference.com before 1 July or visit www.businessmumsconference.co.uk/scholarships/

The deadline for entries is 1st July.

Sponsorship Opportunity

Next year I’d like to attend the very successful and high profile Cybermummy Conference. Cybermummy is the number one conference for British parent bloggers – last year speakers included journalist India Knight and Mumsnet’s Justine Roberts.  The event was written about in many, many parenting blogs, covered in the Financial Times, and featured on Woman’s Hour on Radio 4.

I’d love to attend to represent Business Plus Baby and you. Continue reading “Sponsorship Opportunity”
