Enterprising Women: What I Never Knew I Needed to Know! – Online Inspire Talk w/ Q&A

March 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Come and meet the inspirational and pioneering women at the forefront of Bristol’s creative boom!

Knowle West Media Centre is a female founded (and led) Bristol institution. Over our 25-year history, we have worked with many inspirational women to champion, celebrate and support the role of women in creative practice, business and community.

Following on from International Women’s Day 2022, join us for a special programme of FREE events designed to share knowledge, spark inspiration and make connections.

Join us at our first event of the day for a lively, energising discussion with some pioneering and inspirational women in business, where we ask them how it all began and what they have learned along the way.

What obstacles have they overcome? What tips can they share to support other women on their journeys to success?
