By Anita Jaynes on 8 February, 2017

A workshop to help women in business build a strategy for success will be just one of many sessions on offer at this year’s Swindon & Wiltshire Women in Business Conference, held on International Women’s Day, Wednesday March 8 at Bowood Resort near Calne.

The workshop will be led by Wiltshire-based coach and mentor Isla Baliszewska, founder and director of SCT Smart Coaching and Training, whose mission is to help business leaders and entrepreneurs realise their strengths, to face their challenges and instigate positive change.

“A good business strategy is the foundation for success” said Isla. “It’s always exciting to help people get clarity on what they want to achieve and to begin work on their roadmap to success.”

Hosted by The Enterprise Network (TEN), a Wiltshire Council initiative to support businesses across Swindon and Wiltshire, the conference will celebrate International Women’s Day, showcasing entrepreneurial talent from across the region and providing a forum for learning, sharing and connecting.

The conference programme includes expert speakers, interactive workshops, networking and exhibitions, as well as an advisor zone where people can find out about the range of free business support on offer.

“We want to create a day that promotes support and collaboration” said Jol Rose, conference coordinator. “Every year the conference helps people build lasting connections as well as providing great advice to help businesses on the road to success.”

Tickets to the conference cost just £35 per person, or £75 with a half-day pop-up stand, which include lunch and refreshments throughout the day. Further details and ticket reservation online at
