Our 2018 flagship event was held at the Hilton London Paddington - one of London's grandest Victorian hotels that has offered unrivalled hospitality in its iconic location since 1854. Both days of the conference was chock-full with talks, presentations and breakout sessions based on the conference theme of ‘community, connections and collaboration,’ with all activities focussed on helping women business owners to succeed and corporations to further develop their supplier diversity programmes.
