First look: Leading sessions at Women in Business & Tech Expo

First look: Leading sessions at Women in Business & Tech Expo

10th July 2023

Attended by thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs and tech professionals across the country, Karren Brady’s Women in Business & Tech Expo is the industry-leading hiring event for those who aspire to thrive in their professional careers and grow their businesses.

Since our last event in October 2022, we have seen more women in the UK start new businesses (150,000 more to be exact and more than twice as many as in 2018), one in ten working women in the UK is now involved in start-up entrepreneurial activity and 39.6% of FTSE 100 directorships are now held by women.

While these increases highlight the positive change happening across the UK, it also proves how important events, such as Karren Brady’s Women in Business & Tech Expo (WIBTE), are to continue this movement.

Whether your objective is to meet a new employer, hear from world-class speakers on their own career journeys and top tips on how you can fulfil your potential or to network with likeminded business and tech professionals, Women in Business & Tech Expo is the platform that will enable you to reach your goals.

The theatres

Throughout the two-day event, thought leaders and industry-leading experts will take to our four themed theatres to bring you the latest advice, insight and strategies to take your career to new heights.

WIBTE’s answer to Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage. The main stage will provide inspirational talks on the most current topics for women in business and tech.
