After 2 successful events this year, Uplift Connections brings to you the FINAL event of 2017!
WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR?
Are you a woman?
Have you got a business idea?
Are you looking to kickstart your business?
Are you interested in growing your business – and helping others do the same?
Are you looking to network with women who have a passion for success?
Are you looking to be inspired?
Do you believe in helping women who are less fortunate and may have fallen into terrible circumstances?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, this event is for you.
HOW WILL YOU BENEFIT FROM ATTENDING?
Uplift Connections brings to you an incubator event. What do we mean by an incubator event? We bring you a panel of successful women in business who share with you expert advice. You get an opportunity to network with these experts and also get to speak to other women to get ideas and feedback. If you have a product or a service that you would like to promote and/or test, you can hire a stall and sell or simply promote yourself. Remember, in business, word of mouth is everything.
BUT I AM NOT IN BUSINESS- CAN I COME?
YES! You definitely should come. Small businesses thrive with the support of others who are willing to invest in them. Come and enjoy a day of shopping, all the while supporting other sisters who are in business.
WHY WE DO THIS?
Uplift Connections believes that together it is possible to achieve all great things through inspiration and support but also by sharing knowledge and experience along the way. We believe in cross culture and cross faith collaboration. You will come and meet sisters from all backgrounds, with different stories, but with one thing in common between us all-passion to succeed and to support one another.
WHAT IS PLANNED FOR THE DAY?
We will have an inspirational line-up of women speakers, business stalls, and many more fun networking activities. All our speakers are women who have achieved success in their own careers and have built their own successful businesses. They are here to share their knowledge with you because they believe in uplifting their sisters.
You can expect our panel of speakers to inspire, educate and challenge your thinking about leadership, business and what it takes to be a successful woman, whether it is in business or in your careers. Bring your questions and business cards and come hear stores of other start-up businesses, make valuable contacts and even gain potential collaboration opportunity.
