The 2Inspire Ladies Day event took place on 9th March 2013 at the Crowne Plaza, Docklands.
Coinciding with International Women’s Day, "Celebrating the Creativity of Women" it was a free event that showcased budding and established female entrepreneurs; particularly those in the creative sector.
The 2Inspire Ladies Day offered a platform that promoted and celebrated the creative talent of women.
Some businesses owners had only just launched their products and services and felt that The Ladies Day was a superb entry to market.
With poetry readings from Joanne Mills, LD Henriquez and Cezanne Poetess delegates were treated to some superb entertainment topped off with exclusive singing performances from Linda E and Nyarai.
The 2Inspire Ladies Day was honoured to have Councillor Joy Laguda MBE as one of our guest speakers; encouraging women to take ownership of their goals and strive for the best in life.
The event included stands from organisations and education as well as a wide range of creative businesses and services selling everything from natural beauty products to cupcakes and fashion.
There was also entertainment and workshops to meet the lifestyle, personal and business development needs of attendees.
Workshop topics included health, education, personal development, business start-up, media and styling.
Feedback of the event has been empowering and inspirational; many delegates staying for the entire programme and stall holders keen for the next event which will hopefully take place in September 2013.
The 2inspire network was launched in May of 2012.
“Empowering individuals and helping them to realise their potential is something that I am passionate about. I believe that women should work together and support each other on their journeys, this belief is the foundation of the network, an organisation that provides forums and platforms that help to empower, promote and inspire women” - Founder Hazel Chawapiwa
Hazel has been nominated as “Role Model of The Year” at this year’s Women4Africa Awards.
The event also marked the official launch of the 2Inspire Network’s Academy; a personal development and life-skills programme for young people aged between 16-21.
