Please contact us for future course dates.

Course information

Why do this course?

Following our Enterprising Women workshops in 2015, many participants were keen to form a network to support each other going forward. We would also be delighted to welcome new members to these informal, practical sessions aimed to help women work on their early stage business or enterprise ideas.

Course description

The theme for this session is personal branding. There will be information from everything from recognising how personal branding affects professional success to identifying a personal plan for brand development.
Tea and coffee will be served from 9.30am and the event will commence from 10.00am.

The workshop will run with:

  • A presentation on the topics being discussed.
  • There will be a chance to try out ideas and see what feedback is given.
  • Advice on where the next steps are within your ideas.
  • Hints and tips will be given out along with helpful resources as well as useful websites.

Course structure

Shirley Faultless and Kate Pilgrim will be co-ordinating the sessions. Both local female entrepreneurs, Shirley and Kate have attended previous Kingston University Enterprising Women workshops and have an interest in the issues affecting women in business. Each session will be based around:

  • a presentation on a key issue for start-ups;
  • a chance to try out ideas;
  • advice on next steps;
  • hints and tips for useful websites, companies and other resources; and
  • where possible, guest speakers.

What will you take away?

There will be chances to network with other women who may be able to help take your idea forward or offer help and advice! Your progress will be shared and followed up in future sessions:

  • Thursday 26 May – social media for your business
