Shropshire Chamber of Commerce is planning a networking event with a difference for International Women’s Day.

Workshops, talks and a selection of hands-on practical sessions are being lined up on Friday March 8 at The Astbury Golf & Lodge Resort near Bridgnorth.

It is described by the Chamber as ‘a day dedicated to helping the women in our business community pause, connect, and be truly inspired’.

Kelly Riedel, Shropshire Chamber’s events and training manager, said the half-day session, from 10.45am to 2.15pm, would be ‘a first-of-its-kind celebration of all things women’.

“The dynamic programme of workshops, talks, and sessions has been purpose-designed to give you genuinely practical and tangible take-aways that you can implement right away.

“Covering movement, meditation, positive psychology and much more, this is a day dedicated to helping the women in our business community to pause, to connect, and to be truly inspired.”

Tickets cost £25 and are allocated on a first come, first served basis. The event is restricted to just 100 people, who will all receive a goodie bag, and lunch.

International Women’s Day is a global event celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. 

“If you are looking to ditch the guilt and stop the juggle, and if the idea of being able to step deliberately into your own power anytime you choose appeals, then this is the event for you,” Kelly added.
