Now that the festive season is over, our priorities shift back to business and to setting goals, both professional and personal, for 2018. Here at BWS, we are excited by what the new year will hold. We have been planning some fantastic events for you to get involved in over the coming months.

We decided after 5 years of our #BWSLiveEvent that 2018 is the year to give the events a makeover! The BWS events gives the opportunity to those who attend a chance to delve deeper into the issues that women in business face every day; confidence and leadership (our most requested topic), networking, social media, funding and growing your business. The next event will take place in Edinburgh on 22nd March and we are looking forward to seeing you there. Remember, if you are a BWS member you can claim up to two complimentary tickets for the event. The event starts with breakfast and will finish at 2:30pm, VIP ticket holders will allocated prime seats at the Principal Hotel in Edinburgh.

Along with this we are delighted to announce that the Women in Hospitality and Tourism Awards will be returning in May and the Women in Business Awards later in the year, allowing us to both celebrate and shine a light on the brightest Scottish women in business today.

2018 is sure to be another great year as more and more women work towards their own business goals and we can’t wait to hear about your achievements.
