ONLY 25 SPACES!
I AM MOGUL SUMMER BUSINESS SCHOOL is a two-day programme to support working women in the UK with their professional and personal development to ensure that you are taking charge in your career and life. Based on the information provided from the women who completed our annual women in the workplace survey we have created a tailor made programme of workshops, lectures. talks and seminars to help you develop on key skills that you need to advance in the workplace or in your own business.
This course is perfect for women who want to advance in their careers or lead a successful business by gaining new skills, insight and knowledge from qualified and experienced professionals, practitioners and entrepreneurs.
After this course you will be equipped with the knowledge, support and skill development to take the next steps in your careers or business whether that is more confidence to take on more projects, negotiating a promotion or deal, leading a team, networking and building relationships with Senior executives and clients or taking the first steps to start that side business or hustle.
A two-day programme (Friday 11th-Saturday 12th August) with the first day (11th August) being hosted by Clifford Chance in Canary Wharf and the Second day (12th August) hosted at our offices in Euston, London.
We have kindly been sponsored by Penguin Books who have given some reading materials for our syllabus. We provide all participants with recommended reading materials and podcasts for each session.
The in-kind support from Clifford Chance on the Friday has allowed us to subsidize the costs of the tickets for both days.
Once tickets are purchased all attendees will be sent a full agenda with timings and pre-reading materials.

You're invited to
You’re invited to my exclusive Afternoon of Fashion meetup, focused on mentoring you to start and grow your fashion business online and promote yourself confidently. I take the stress out of starting up, the fear out of failure and support you to break those business barriers and transform your business into the Chanel of your niche (with chit chat over coffee).
Fashion is a tough industry, starting, running and growing your business can be overwhelming, to say the least, and networking events (meetups, workshops and seminars) can be a scary thought. Although to be successful, we all need to fight our fears, so I’m here with a supportive, empowering and practical meetup to encourage, motivate and give you the tools to develop your label confidently and meet other inspirational people in the same shoes as you.
For less than the price of a new outfit for spring/summer, not only will I show you how you can get ahead of your competitors but reveal the secrets to become the Chanel of your niche in a short space of time. You’ll leave with a structure, plan, skills and specialist after support. After all, life’s too short to do something you don’t love and I help you to make a living out of your passion.
Stop procrastinating, your business can succeed with the right support. Come and join me at the women in business meetup.

Discover the history behind the design technique in this practical after-work taster event and then watch a beautiful demonstration, before having fun experimenting on the mannequin yourself with gorgeous, luxury eco textiles from Offset Warehouse.
Draping on the stand is a pattern cutting technique used by many designers, where garments are created on the stand and then transferred onto paper to make a pattern. By draping, you can literally watch a garment come to life in front of your eyes in a matter of minutes. This quick technique gives designers freedom to play with fabric and adjust details, creating many variations in style, quickly and simply.
All of the fabrics for the evening will be provided by the online ethical fabric shop Offset Warehouse. Offset Warehouse has one of the largest ranges of ethical textiles available online, whose goal is to sell the most beautiful, hand-crafted and fairly-sourced fabrics, trims and threads from across the globe.
