The 2019 edition of the WEConnect International Europe Conference was held at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel London Kensington.


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.

WBE2WBE Day Sales Secrets

Our WBE 2 WBE Day: Sales Secrets event was hosted on March 2019 by our WBE Council and EY, a WEConnect International corporate member, at their fabulous offices near Tower Bridge, London, and brought together over 20 of our certified WBEs to understand more about the sales skills everyone should know. Over 40 people attended to learn more about sales structure and techniques to embed into business ethos to drive sales growth. Our external trainer for the day, Nicola Cook from Company Shortcuts, delivered a highly insightful and extremely engaging workshop discussing everything from unique value proposition, effective sales channels, the customer journey, internal sales culture to valuable sales metrics. In addition to the new sales tips everyone took away, it was a great networking event for our WBEs to get to know one another and learn more about each other’s businesses.
