Join Holly Moore from Make Events, as she will be chairing a panel of other successful business women who will be discussing the seasons of life; the choices we make, being comfortable with your choices and how to feel ultimately fulfilled.

Within this session we will be asking;

  • What boundaries do women face?
  • What strategies do we use to create success whether that’s as a business woman or as a full time Mum,
  • Do we ever feel at peace with our choices?

Whether your single, happily married, divorced, navigating a blended family, been through the menopause or have children with disabilities and whether you are an entrepreneur, work full time, part time or are a full time Mum..... this discussion will touch your heart and inspire you to make the most of the cards you are dealt.
