On the 19th of November 2014 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City a new movement was launched to celebrate, empower and support women entrepreneurs worldwide.

This date will forever be known as Women's Entrepreneurship Day.

Womens Entrepreneurship Day

And while you may have missed the hoopla in New York, the two very talented women behind Freshly Squeezed Business could not let the day go by without marking it with a celebration to women, along with raising awareness and support for the 250 million girls living in poverty worldwide. They are passionate about supporting women in business and their Kiva fund enables them to spread their support globally.

Ready for the Experts!

Kerry-Ann Jenkins opened the evening with a powerful and moving video: The Girl Effect. This highlighted the power in unleashing adolescent girls' potential to end poverty for themselves, their families and their communities.

Next came advice from the experts. It was amazing to hear their entrepreneurial stories and tips.

Carol Haslam began in the IT industry when computers lived in a room not on a desktop and today as a business and marketing strategist and tour guide her best tip was plan, plan and plan some more.

Derik Munneke an app developer who has had a forward and back approach to setting up businesses with more than one company closing the doors and making him redundant. These setbacks didn't bring him down, but rather served as learning experiences. His tip was to ensure you start with the best time management and financial systems. Measure and celebrate your goals even the small ones.

Lisa Redman started work in the public service before realising that the entrepreneurial lifestyle was for her. She advised to do what you love and be bold in the face of fear.

Paul Daly wears many hats in the entrepreneurship sphere and he advised to create a model of how your business operates to test suggested changes before their execution.

Wendy Davidson is a management consultant who asked the room to think of their biggest fear. Her advice was to look at it logically and realise it wasn't actually a truth.

There was wine and nibbles to accompany the opportunity to network. Rachel Ambagtsheer and Kerry-Ann cleverly placed coded dots on our name badges to connect people who should connect. A fabulous way to help those who quake at the knees when the word networking is uttered!
