Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is working with Enterprise Nation, Facebook and NatWest to support women across the UK grow their businesses online.

On Tuesday 15th September, the SheMeansBusiness Facebook page will play host to a virtual event bringing together a collection of inspiring, insightful and real stories from women who mean business, following what’s been a challenging time for all.

Following the main event, Solent LEP will be hosting a dedicated training session on its own Facebook page with #SheMeansBusiness accredited trainer Caroline Sumners. Caroline will be sharing top tips for engaging with your customers directly on Facebook messenger including talking through Facebook messaging solutions, crafting your Facebook messenger marketing strategy, and reporting and insights.  There will also be a 15 minute Q&A at the end of the training session for any questions viewers may have.

The #SheMeansBusiness Sessions starts at 12:00 with Facebook VP Nicola Mendelson in conversation with NatWest CEO Alison Rose, followed by founder of Holly Tucker, telling her story. Broadcaster June Sarpong also speaks to many fearless female business founders before viewers enter just over an hour of sessions covering four topics; Mindset, Resilience, The 4 C’s and Cash Management and Investment.

Solent LEP Director Rachael Randall said:

“We are committed to supporting our women in business and are delighted to join SheMeansBusiness alongside Enterprise Nation, Facebook and Natwest to deliver these training sessions which could make a real difference to many female entrepreneurs looking to use Facebook more effectively as a platform.  We hope the main event will provide huge inspiration to attendees and the breakout session will drill down to tips and advice that can be put into practice.”

They are supposed to be holding training for “people” in business, not just one gender.
Everyday there are endless media articles where woman are bemoaning about men only clubs and groups – well, this event is not inclusive and not conducive to 21st century thinking.
It should be an event that is open to all, not some sexist, gender specific, event where 50% of the population are excluded, yet have contributed through taxation to this Solent Lep group.
This hypocrisy needs to stop- where is the “helping men in business” event then?
