Julie Pollock, Chairperson from Women In Enterprise added: “This is a fantastic opportunity for local businesses to network and hear from an inspiring business woman who has grown her business internationally.”
The event will also provide the opportunity for businesses to take exhibition stands to promote their business or service, although spaces are limited.
