Calling all WNC entrepreneurs 3 Jun 2024 (Braunston Parish Council) Calling all West Northants entrepreneurs – win tickets to globally acclaimed Female Founders Summit this summer

Local entrepreneurs have the chance to win exclusive tickets to the globally recognised Female Founders Summit 2024 being held in West Northamptonshire for the first time.

Organised by accredited master coach Lucienne Shakir and Lucienne Coaching, the two-day event will take place on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 July, with well-known businesswoman, broadcaster, author and activist Mary Portas as the headline speaker.

As part of its partnership and support, West Northamptonshire Council is now inviting new business owners to enter a raffle between 3rd and 30th June to win an exclusive ticket to the conference, with the winners being announced on 3rd July. There are three tickets being given away.

To be eligible, entrants must have a business registered in West Northants which is under 12 months of trading.

Cllr Daniel Lister, WNC’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Town Centre Regeneration and Growth said: “We are thrilled to be supporting master accredited, Northampton-born coach, Lucienne Shakir and her Lucienne Coaching team on this event for business leaders and offering West Northants entrepreneurs an exclusive opportunity to win tickets to attend.

“The council is dedicated to supporting entrepreneurship and enabling local business growth, and this Summit is a fantastic example of West Northamptonshire as the perfect destination for business and investment, whilst simultaneously allowing us to be part of addressing a much larger issue which Lucienne Coaching is directly tackling.

“We want West Northants to be a place where everyone can live their best lives and thrive, therefore we want to highlight the incredible success of being the chosen destination to host this prominent event and hope that by joining forces to champion entrepreneurship in our local area, we can create wide ranging opportunities for local businesses, people and communities.”

The Female Founders Summit will also include deep learning and masterclasses from high-profile experts at a number of venues, including Northampton’s Royal Theatre, Delapré Abbey, Northampton Museum and Art Gallery, Northampton Film House, and Vulcan Works. West Northamptonshire Council have partnered with Lucienne Coaching for this event to secure its relocation to Northampton.

Lucienne Shakir said: “To be bringing my highly acclaimed Female Founders Summit to Northampton for the first time is a really big deal and incredibly exciting for the local business community.

“It will be an accessible, transformational and actionable live experience with celebrated and inspiring speakers all sharing their knowledge about what it means to be high performing businesswomen. During the seminars, lectures and workshops over the two days, speakers will be talking about scaling businesses, and giving insight and advice on real business issues such as improving confidence, overcoming burnout and how to market their services. The tickets are understandably in very high demand because the learning and takeaways will be off the scale.

“By entering this raffle, local entrepreneurs have a brilliant opportunity to win one of only a handful of complementary tickets. It is fantastic.”
