"We are all busy people and as I drove to the event (my first attendance), I considered if my attendance was a priority. Once there, I realised I had made the right decision! The quality of the event was top notch, the ladies nominated were inspirational and the guest speaker (Petra) was just awesome! A great investment of my time to celebrate such great people and their stories."

Event Organised By

Forward Ladies Ltd

Forward Ladies was founded in 1999 with one single vision in mind - to unlock potential in professional women. 17 years on and we are still going strong! We wanted to create an environment and community where women could feel heard, seen and able to upskill and develop themselves.

However, after a few years our membership exploded and it became clear that we needed to spend some time creating different offers for the diverse women in our membership. We have start-ups, heads of large companies, successful small businesses and women on boards - all within our membership
