A regular podcast featuring invaluable advice from some of Liverpool city region’s best female entrepreneurs has been launched by The Women’s Organisation.

Based close to Liverpool city centre, The Women’s Organisation has supported the ambitions and personal development of more than 55,000 women over the past 23 years and The Wo-Down podcast aims to impart that wealth of knowledge and experience to inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs.


Available now on SoundCloud, along with a behind-the-scenes video on YouTube, The Wo-Down will examine the back-stories of many of the region’s most successful female business people, outlining the why, what, and how, of their successes so far.

Introducing the first broadcast of The Wo-Down , Women’s Organisation co-founder and chief executive Maggie O’Carroll will explain the importance of collaboration and role models as she shares some of her core business values with listeners.

The podcast will return every month, on each first Wednesday of the month.

Among the region’s top female role models already lined up to talk about their own personal journey on the path to commercial success are Ngunan Adamu, founder of iWoman Academy, Lizzie Doyle, producer of football fans’ favourite The Anfield Wrap, Lisa Pearson, head of marketing at transport group Arriva North West and Wales, and Rebecca Keegan, editor of Good News Liverpool.

They, and a host of other inspirational businesswomen, will be taking to the mic over the coming months to provide support and encouragement for listeners.

Perfect platform

Maggie O’Carroll said: “Liverpool is a city built on the stories of so many pioneering, inspirational women and promoting these role models is a major part of what we do at The Women’s Organisation. The Wo-Down is the perfect platform for us to continue this legacy and make sure that as many people as possible hear these stories.

“We will be getting some familiar faces from across the city region to take to the microphones, as well as giving a new platform for the unsung heroes of the city and the next wave of roles models to have their voices heard.

“We want to hear from women of all ages, backgrounds and industries who can bring a fresh narrative and wealth of experience, delving into business, politics, the arts, social work and social activities.”
