Yorkshire women unite to celebrate strength in business

Business women from across Yorkshire will gather in Leeds this November to mark the first ever Yorkshire Women in Business Day.

Taking place in the heart of the city, the event will feature inspiring speakers as well as the opportunity to network with representatives of some of the region’s leading businesses.

It has been organised by Paula Grizzard, who spent many years working in international economic development. She now runs the Yorkshire branches of networking group WIBN (Women in Business Network), a national organisation for business women working in any sector.

Paula said: “I have been truly inspired by the women I have met through WIBN across Yorkshire, and impressed by the driven and dynamic way they run fantastic businesses in a wide range of sectors.

“Business women in our region fly the flag for Yorkshire, and make a very strong contribution to the Northern Powerhouse.

“However, the one thing I think we could all do better is to sing the praises of the Yorkshire business women who play such an important part in our economy, both regionally and nationally. I hope the first Yorkshire Women in Business Day will be an opportunity to recognise women’s role in business and to share the outstanding work being done across the region all year round.”

The event takes place at the Novotel City Hotel in Leeds on Wednesday, November 25 from 10am to 2pm. Tickets are £40 per person, including lunch, and available to business women from across Yorkshire.

Places are limited and expected to sell quickly, so early booking is advised. Email paula.grizzard@wibn.co.uk.
