Make It Your Business

Location The Clock, 42 Wimpole Street, W1G 8YF

Hot on the heels of our first sell out events, Make It Your Business is holding several more seminars across London throughout 2017. 

Looking to start your own business? Don't know where to start? Then you are in the right place. We organise friendly get togethers of around 30 women to offer support and encouragement in a relaxed and informal environment. You will get direct access to four successful female entrepreneurs and an opportunity to hear about their experiences, ask them for advice and help, and to network with a like minded supportive group of women. 

The event will be moderated by Virginia Crosbie, Director Women2Win

The Clock, 42 Wimpole Street, W1G 8YF, Wednesday 28th June 2017, 6.30-8.30pm. Doors open 6.15pm. Pay bar.

We look forward to meeting you and helping you on the first steps of your journey. 

Make it Your Business is supported by the Conservative Women's Association and Women2Win, encouraging women to fulfil their potential at all levels. 

Our London North event will feature the following panellists:

Karen Welman (Pearlfisher)

Founding Creative Partner & CCO 

I’ve always been the curious creative explorer, pushing us beyond what we can see by continually questioning what is possible. Count on me for the unique, unexpected (and often frank!) viewpoint. 

I love working with brave thinkers; those prepared to take a risk are often the ones who create real change. Our Green & Blacks design was a defining moment for me and I’m equally proud of our work for Absolut Vodka. Innovation and turning great ideas into action has been a lifelong passion of mine. My patented inventions include 37º, a range of temperature-regulating baby clothes featuring NASA-developed fabrics which picked up awards all over the world.

I was also named in the Top 10 Global Female Inventors a few years ago. I’m always working on something new and in recent years co-founded private member’s gym The Library: it’s this diversity and the prospect of venturing head-first into the unknown that keeps me burning as brightly as when I started out over 30 years ago.


Zana Morris (The Library Gym)

With over 20 years experience in the areas of nutrition, personal training and yoga, Zana knows how to transform her clients; helping them to achieve exceptional results both physically and mentally.


Building on the success of her private studios in Harley Street and Barnes, The Library is a culmination of Zana’s passion for health through nutrition and exercise, as well as education and relaxation.


Her lifetime in the industry has allowed her to create a gym that not only guarantees results, but is also a beautiful space.  A place that will allow you to make the most of the time you save to relax and enjoy some intelligent thinking.


Sarah Austin (The Really Helpful Club).

After studying Classics and Modern Languages at Oxford, Sarah spent 10 years in the City as a Fund Manager with Baring Asset Management.  She left the City in 2003 to become a full time mother.  She founded Really Helpful Club (RHC) 3 years ago to create an online network that brings together positive, like-minded women to support and connect one another in our personal and business lives.  The RHC is all about sharing, discovering and connecting. 

RHC is a secure platform which offers a trusted and efficient way of sharing our knowledge and leveraging our networks.  With thousands of members, the network is buzzing.  RHC brings the members together at all levels from helping them to find trusted solutions in their daily lives to connecting them to life changing opportunities.

Their events bring everything to life and allow the members the opportunity to meet and support one another, connect and learn something new.  Their exciting programme of events include workshops and seminars to help women build confidence on their journey back to work either returning to the corporate world or taking the leap to start and grow their own business. 

Lucy Standing (Viewvo).

Lucy is a chartered psychologist and Vice Chair of the Association for Business psychology. Previously a global head of recruitment and board level consultant helping private equity and executive search firms identify leadership, innovation and entrepreneurial capability, she's now a social entrepreneur and founder of ViewVo.  ViewVo is a service giving people who want to learn about running a business, chances to shadow business owners willing to share their day and their secrets to being successful.
