Join us for the Inspire Challenge Excel Conference

On the 26 September Kent Innovation & Enterprise are hosting the inaugural Inspire Challenge Excel Conference at Canterbury Cathedral Lodge. Marking the first anniversary of the Inspire Challenge Excel Programme (ICE-P) this will be a day of inspiring talks and workshops from a range of speakers and facilitators.

Among the speakers are Kent Honorary Graduate Dr Amanda Cottrell OBE, delivering her talk ‘Suffrage to Ceilings (glass or otherwise)’ which takes a light-hearted but profound look at the journey of women through a century of change and the University’s very own Professor Amalia Arvaniti from the SECL presenting on language and gender. Workshops will be delivered by representatives from Enterprise Rent-a-Car, who have made it onto The Times list of the Top 50 Employers for Women for the last two years, as well as the Business of Brand.

The conference is open to everyone and will be a unique opportunity to learn, develop and network with likeminded individuals.

The programme was launched in September 2017, with a lecture from the inspiring Dr Sue Black. It aims to bridge the gap between the university and business communities and create opportunities to support women in all stages of their lives and careers.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided and you can book your place here:
