Shropshire Chamber of Commerce is hosting the event on Friday, March 8, at The Astbury Golf & Lodge Resort near Bridgnorth, where workshops, talks and a selection of hands-on practical sessions will take place.

And now, the speakers who will be appearing on the day have been revealed.

Kelly Riedel, Shropshire Chamber’s events and training manager, said: “The event is a day dedicated to helping the women in our business community pause, connect, and be truly inspired.

“It will run from 10.45am to 2.15pm, and it will be a first-of-its-kind celebration of all things women. The workshops, talks, and sessions have been purposely designed to give our guests genuinely practical and tangible take-aways that they can implement right away.”

Kelly said the programme would cover movement, meditation, positive psychology and much more. 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 mocktail on arrival, a goodie bag, and lunch.

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