Founder of Wiltshire-based PinkBox Boutique, Kerry Gover, has been announced as the second keynote speaker for this year’s Women in Business Conference, to be held on Wednesday March 8 at Bowood Resort.

Kerry set up independent gift retailer PinkBox Boutique in her spare room in 2013. Her smart approach to business has seen sales boom, and this year see the company’s first shop concessions are opening nationwide.

Kerry will talk about the key challenges she faced building her business – both internal and external – and how she managed to overcome them.

The story of PinkBox Boutique’s success completes the line-up of inspirational speakers and expert-led workshops at the conference, an annual event held on International Women’s Day to celebrate women in business, providing an opportunity to learn, share and connect.

Throughout the day, there will be time to network as well as discuss with a range of business support professionals and organisations in attendance.

“We’re delighted to be showcasing so much local talent and success” said Jolyon Rose, conference coordinator. “Our speakers are bound to inspire.”

The conference is organized by The Enterprise Network (TEN), a Wiltshire Council initiative to support business across Swindon and Wiltshire, and supported by Swindon Borough Council and the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
