Pink Link is doubling the opportunities for women to grow their business with two Summer Regional conferences. The first event is at Farington Lodge, Preston on 11 August, followed a fortnight later on the 25 August at Lakeside Hotel & Spa in Windermere, Cumbria.
The events are a chance for female entrepreneurs from all sectors to get together with like-minded women who share similar aspirations. They help women to build an authentic and supportive network, explore prospects and discover resources, and are designed to help them grow a strong and successful business.
Over 20 exhibitors at the Preston event will be promoting their products and services and there are two free masterclasses which are open to all. The Intellectual Property Office will be showing businesses how to protect their content, ideas and designs and will be on hand to offer advice that could save them time and money. The second workshop is with Del Parsons Coaching. She helps women to overcome their fear of sales and selling and champions powerful women who want to run their business in a feminine way.
Female empowerment is a powerful theme at Pink Link events and the conference’s guest speakers are shining examples of strong female leaders. Both entrepreneurs are bound to inspire and motivate as they share their stories.
Born in a small village in Zimbabwe, award winner Delight Mapasure of K’s Wors has faced many challenges including racism and bias. Although rejected on Dragon’s Den and turned down by numerous banks and investment houses, she never stopped believing in herself or her idea. Her resilience and experiences helped her to build a six-figure business making an eclectic range of South African Boerewors sausages which are sold in Costco and Ocado and have attracted buyers from the UAE and India. In Delight’s own words “Anything worth having, is worth failing for.”
Global entrepreneur and multi-award-winning CEO of Freedom Services, Sam White launched her first business at 24 years old.

She is a vocal advocate for leveling the playing field for women and championing female leaders within the industry. With a turnover of almost £20m her ethos is to build businesses that work for everyone; the people they employ, the communities they operate in and the customers they serve.
Coral Horn, founder of Pink Link said “Extra support is needed to improve female entrepreneurs’ access to tools, resources and finance. These events are where women from across the region can discuss their challenges and find solutions, promote their business and meet potential new customers and suppliers – it’s what businesses need.”
Speakers at the Summer Regional Cumbria event include Inspirational Woman of the Year, Rachel Holliday of Time to Change WC and sustainability champion Maria Benjamin of Dodgson Wood.
