WINTRADE WEEK LONDON…
is the brainchild of Dr Yvonne Thompson CBS who has been running a women in business network for the past 21 years, since 1996.
Having supported, mentored, celebrated and profiled thousands of women in business during that time, both small business owners and women in corporate structures.
During this time Dr Thompson has hosted several business delegations from, Nigeria, South Africa, Ghana, Holland, France, Germany, the US and Canada who are looking to do business with women in business here in the UK.
Bringing Global networks together
In 2017, she decided to bring her global networks together in the same place at the same time for one whole week.
To achieve this she brought together her WINTRADE partners, Carmen Breedveld, Women Entrepreneurs Netherlands, Chantal Clairicia – EuroDiversity – France, Dr Justina Mutale, Justina Mutale Foundation and Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu.
The coming together of these networks formed the first WINTRADE WEEK LONDON 2017.
Over 200 women in business
The first WINTRADE WEEK came together in just 10 weeks and hosted over 200 women in business globally. With events held at House of Lords, Dutch Embassy, European School of Economics, Deloitte, Royal Bank of Scotland, Metro Designs, and supported by LinkedIn, GQ magazine, L’Oreal, Diageo, and Uber, the first WINTRADE WEEK was a complete success.
Over 40 speakers, over 10 countries, 6 venues.
With the first WINTRADE WEEK under our belts, we look forward to bettering WINTRADE WEEK LONDON 2018 May 14-18th. Our 2018 event will see the addition of a new partner joining the group – Gulrukh Khan. (Please see the “Meet The Organisors” page for more information.
