It's time to think forward

The brand new Forward Ladies is dedicated to the training and development of women in business. Much more than just networking.

Much more than networking

We run local events and conferences throughout the UK. We have our signature International Women Day events which have attracted world class speakers like Cherie Blair, Germaine Greer and others.

Developing your skills

We work closely with a number of bluechip companies to develop their female staff and also help them engage better with their female customers.

Take home an award

The Forward Ladies’ Women in Business Awards recognise the achievements of professional business women in the North West of England, the Isle of Man and Yorkshire and the North East.

Keep up to date with us
