Job Seekers

Looking for professional growth opportunities?

Absolutely!

Insights, upskilling, and networking for career professionals.

Join us (virtually) in October at the 3rd edition of Women in Business Expo.

Within the past years, we’ve seen a shift in the search for a more fulfilling career - one that provides the benefits, support, and growth opportunities for women in leadership. 

Women/women-identifying professionals want a seat at the table. Actually, we want to lead the discussions at the table.

87% of global mid-market companies have at least one, if any, woman in a senior management role in 2020 (Grant Thornton, Women in Business 2020: Putting the Blueprint into Action (2020): p. 4.) One woman in a senior management role? We call ‘glass ceiling’. We belong in all places where decisions are made - and that includes boardrooms, and in executive leadership roles.

Why attend?

Progress in your career

Speak to employers who are actively recruiting across all levels, including higher management and senior leadership roles. Attend roundtable discussions with companies hiring diverse talent.

Upskill and reskill

Meet 1-on-1 with companies thriving through the pandemic to safeguard your future, develop your skill set or find your next career move.

Be inspired 

Hear from successful female pioneers who’ve moved through the corporate ladder to become executives, directors, and C-Suite leaders. Gain insight from their personal stories and advice.

Break your barriers

Mindset or the patriarchy? Potentially a mix of both. Break through your limiting beliefs and the confidence gap with the tools to achieve your professional goals, with others striving to do the same.

About the event

The #1 business event for women in business, looking for recruitment, guidance, and upskilling to excel your career.

Women in Business Expo is focused on advancing female leadership and centering conversations on propelling diversity in the field. We partner and collaborate with companies, organisations, and leading professionals to create opportunities for diverse management teams and boardrooms.

I wanted to attend Women in Business Expo as an opportunity to network with large employers. It worked tremendously well, and I now have a number of very large companies actively considering vacant roles for me

Suzanne

A fantastic and a truly inspiring array of wonderful women. I felt so inspired from these two days that I actually enrolled for further education! I hope next year’s line up is even more impressive.

Yasmin

I am amazed with everything I learned these last 2 days. It opened my mind to other opportunities, and I received tonnes of helpful advice about what I need to do to go forward in my career. Thank you so much.

Lucia

A brilliant 2 days, so well organised and great line up. I thought I would miss seeing people in person, but I met lots of new people and was able to network. A great mix of speakers, exhibitors and attendees
