Female entrepreneurs and business owners busy making a living or developing exciting new products and ideas may overlook their own career development needs or the benefits of building networks with other like–minded professionals.
“It will often be so far down their list, with other people and caring responsibilities taking priority,” points out Maxine Benson , co-founder of Everywoman, a company that supports women in business. “But it is so important for women to consider how they can progress their own careers.”
Earlier this month, her company provided an online training session to a group of Connected Places Catapult colleagues and associates titled ‘Presence and impact’ designed to inspire confidence among women keen to make their mark in business.
Next week, a second session will cover the topic of ‘Building credibility’ to help females exert influence to achieve their professional objectives.
