#FSBConnect Women Monday Motivation - 18 Nov | The Crown Hotel | Monday, 18. November 2019

FSB Women #MondayMotivation
Get some #MondayMotivation by listening to three inspirational businesswomen tell their business story. There will be opportunities for networking, and you will come away after the event feeling inspired and re-energized about your own business by learning from other people’s business journey. Our three brilliant speakers are all running successful small businesses and have overcome personal and professional barriers on the road to self-employment happiness. Men are very welcome to attend. 

Fiona Bowman - For the last 5 years Fiona has been running her successful Management Consultancy, Dysart 57 Ltd, using her 25 years’ experience as a Senior Facilities Manager, gained whilst working for large Corporates, Universities, Banks and Local Authorities, to now bring a “poacher turned gamekeeper” approach to her clients and also is helping small businesses gain the expertise and understanding they need to operate in the wider business environment. She mentors CEO’s, Directors and Business Owners giving them the opportunity to review and re fresh their business strategies and reviews difficult contracts, complex team structures or areas of their businesses which need attention.
But her “life story” before then is completely different, running away from a violent and abusive marriage in Scotland to start her life again in the City of London, with what she stood up in, not having anywhere to live but having a job to go to on the Monday.
She has become not just a successful businesswoman but is also an Author, having written a book “Did I Wake You Pet?” about her experiences, she is a media subject expert on Domestic Abuse (DA), a DA Conference Keynote Speaker on “The Importance of Employers in the lives of Victims”, a Freeman of the City of London and a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals. She has recently moved her life and her business to Stokesley and is enjoying the fresh challenges that the North Yorkshire business world has to offer.
Eleanor Goddard - Eleanor is the owner of Interior Designers Furnish & Fettle which has showrooms in both Wetherby & Harrogate.  Furnish & Fettle was created when Eleanor realised her dream to become a business owner by buying what was then James Brindley in Wetherby with her husband Glyn.  Eleanor’s story includes studying for a degree in agribusiness & a career in medical sales before she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis which meant that a demanding career was no longer a possibility.
9am - Arrival coffee & networking9.40am – 3 x 20 minutes inspirational & honest business stories from our speakers10.40am – Q&A – chance to ask questions 11am – 30 minutes of optional networking

We’re changing the way you book to attend FSB events and very shortly you will be able to book and view events directly through the FSB website without the use of third party booking platforms. This change is all about making the process simpler for you and help us understand which events are helpful to you and your business.
Starting in the next few months our events will no longer be listed on Eventbrite and therefore it’s important that you register to receive information about FSB events to ensure you don’t miss out. FSB members don’t need to do anything, you will automatically receive information as part of your membership.
If you are not currently an FSB member and want to continue to be notified about events please add your name and email address here and we’ll notify you when the new site is live.
