The company will open its doors to all guests interested in business networking and hearing some inspirational stories from women with very different journeys.

The line-up of speakers includes, Sara Williams, Chief Executive of Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce, Maxine Booth, trainer at from Intec Business Colleges and Rachel Lowe, Branch manager at Brook Street Recruitment in Telford.


Sara Williams, CEO of Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce, said: “I’m delighted to be speaking at this event to mark International Women’s Day. Women still face many barriers in business, from perceptions of our roles to lack of workplace flexibility, so it’s essential that we come together at events like this to look at how we can break down barriers, raise the profile of women, and celebrate all we have to offer.”

Rachel Lowe added: “This event is a fantastic way to highlight the current issues facing women at work. A big challenge many still face today is going back to work following a career break, such as maternity leave. On their return, women can feel uncertain and isolated, and it is down to organisations to provide appropriate support during this stage and ensure a comfortable and an effective pathway back into the workplace.”

Carol Huggins, organiser of the event and HR manager of Erwin Hymer Centre Travelworld added: “Throughout history, women have used their determination and strength to forge a positive future. International Women’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate this overall achievement and acknowledge the experiences women in business have also shown. There are so many inspirational women right here in our own business community. We want to bring them together in our showrooms to celebrate how far we have come and to keep on encouraging each other.”
