February 2013 Newsletter

Dear London Mums

What an exciting start of the year! A big group of London Mums met on the 9th floor of City Hall for an exclusive reception with the Mayor of London, lots of laughs, photo bombing and photo shooting with the spectacular London by night view with our photographer Michael from Memorygate. Check our our photos on our Facebook page. A night to remember!

More exciting than that is the announcement that our annual conference in collaboration with Work Your Way and the support of the Mayor of London will be a FREE all-day event held at City Hall (same spectacular view!) on International Women’s Day on 8th March 2013. The title is “NURTURING FEMALE ENTREPRENEURSHIP THROUGH THE POWER OF COLLABORATION” and the programme can be found on our dedicated page. We only have 200 seats available. If you are keen to attend, please make sure you to pre-register by sending your full name and business name (if applicable) by email to info@londonmumsmagazine.com as soon as possible.

This event is aimed at female entrepreneurs and ‘mumpreneurs’, mums keen to continue working flexibly around their families, young women and young entrepreneurs. This platform wishes to help them kick-start their new business or to offer practical advice and help them take their business to the next level as well as to provide collaboration and network opportunities.
