Guest speaker will be Merseyside entrepreneur, Deirdre Bounds, who built a global global business which she sold to a FTSE 100 company. She is also a best-selling author and TV presenter/producer.
Coral Horn, founder of Pink Link, said “We already have ties to the area through our business awards – the Enterprise Vision Awards. Last year, Kate Stewart won Business Woman of the Year. There’s a wealth of fantastic businesses in Liverpool and we’re looking forward to building a strong female network here.”
Clare Ellis added: “Building a cohesive network of businesswomen where we know and trust each other is really important to me. The online community of Pink Link Ladies stood out as a really great opportunity to bring the women of Liverpool together to support and build each other’s businesses.”
