Founder Julie Hawkins is passionate about supporting all small businesses and is now committed to helping single mums through what she knows can be a very challenging journey.

Archaic work patterns and pay are at the heart of what inspires Julie to help those constructively dismissed by society succeed in self-employment.

These ladies really know their stuff and are travelling from afar to share their knowledge with you! and we may squeeze in a surprise or two!

The event promises to be a relaxed and enjoyable day, to leave you feeling inspired, confident, fed, and watered! Tickets are £20, and places are limited! Members get to come for free (booking essential)! If you are new to single-parenting and feeling less than glorious please come along and learn how to hold your head high and embrace the journey! You’ll be amazed what you can achieve! – You don’t have to be single to come, the day will be inspiring for any person in, or thinking about, turning to self-employment.

The event is 11am – 2pm – this allows a couple of hours journey time after school drop off.  If you need to dash at 1pm that’s okay! You will still get great value with speakers, food & drink.

The route is really easy.  The M50 is a dream (although please remain diligent) and The Gateway venue is quite literally a minute from the M50, with free parking outside the door all day.  Fantastic disabled access.

At the end of the conference we have the official launch of ‘1230 The Women’s Company’. You can linger and network or you can shoot off.  2pm is open to all local business women but booking is also essential.  The owner of 1230 TWC Jackie Groundsell will be here to meet you all and this networking hour, from 2-3pm is free (although booking required due to limited capacity). Enjoy a cup of coffee on us and see what it’s all about!
