Pink Link International Women's Day - The Line Up!

Get Ready to Unleash the Power – Girl Power!

Get ready to ignite the spirit of empowerment and inclusion as Pink Link proudly presents a spectacular event to mark International Women’s Day on Friday 8 March at Leighton Hall, in Carnforth, Lancashire. This immersive celebration is not just an event – it’s an experience, presenting a dynamic blend of inspiring speakers, valuable business masterclasses, re-energising wellbeing workshops, insightful panel talks, focused discussions, networking and business opportunities.

Motivational speakers Francesca Barker-Mills, Jessica Cunningham, Caroline Bramwell and Mayameen Meftahi BEM, will share their incredibly powerful stories. The audience will hear how the trauma of prison, sustenance abuse, domestic abuse, child sexual abuse, and life changing illnesses didn’t stop these women from becoming mighty warriors.

Author of Loo Rolls to Lycra, Caroline Bramwell is featured in BBC Louise Minchin’s Fearless Women book and is the ostomy expert for MasterChef’s Gregg Wallace. It takes guts to confront major challenges, but when Caroline found out she’d have none, a new determination kicked in to take on challenges she never thought she could have done. She said “Inspiring women to be the best version of themselves and step into their power as experts in their field is my personal passion and I am delighted to be invited as a guest speaker. This will be an extravaganza of empowerment!”. From couch potato to Ironman, her story will inspire listeners to push their boundaries and live life to the max!
