Recognising Local Business Women
Friday 6th June 2014, 10.00am to 4.00pm, Guildhall Shopping Centre Exeter
Women looking to set up a business, or who already run a business and need some extra guidance, can look forward to a day of free advice thanks to the Venus Awards and their sponsors.
Experts from Venus Awards sponsors NatWest, Stones Solicitors LLP, Bishop Fleming, Sampson Hall and Western Morning News/Express & Echo will be in Market Square at the Guildhall Shopping Centre in Exeter between 10.00am and 4.00pm to provide free advice to women in business.
Representatives from the Venus Awards themselves will also be on hand to talk about the awards and to encourage people to enter, or to nominate women in business with a successful story to tell.
The advice available will be wide ranging, from setting up a business to business expansion, hiring and firing, funding, tax and business planning, working from home and more.
Other Venus Awards supporters, such as Leading Women UK, Heart FM and the Exeter Daily, will also be exhibiting their skills and expertise.
Celia Delaney, local organiser for the Venus Awards, said: “This is the first time that the Venus Awards have taken a business advisory day to a public space such as a shopping centre, and we are grateful to our sponsors, and to the Guildhall Shopping Centre for helping us run this innovative event. We have deliberately chosen such an informal setting because we know that many women, especially when they are starting out in business, are deterred from seeking advice from traditional business environments. By offering access to some of the region’s leading business experts in such a way, we hope to encourage more women to come forward for top-notch business advice.”
