Welcome to WinTrade Week Convention May 14th – 19th 2018

WinTrade at Number 10 Downing St London 30th April 2018

In this historic year, our Convention’s overall theme is ‘Womenomics’ elevating economic prosperity for women in business across the globe.  The term ‘Womenomics’ maybe a new one to you. Introduced to the mainstream by our esteemed Advisory Board Member and one of the convention’s distinguished speakers, Professor Vicky Pryce, ‘Womenomics’ is concerned with the education, creation, ingestion and the transference of wealth to women, for women and by women. To this end, the convention serves up a range of exciting themes by our pool of expert thinkers where we hope you will draw benefit from to make appropriate for your own circumstance in business. We have Trade Economics, encouraging women to increase their trading powers globally. Financial Economics: to encourage women business leaders to be financially independent. Political Economics; how women may increase their political awareness to mobilise better trade and business opportunities. Social Economics, fuelling social change through women in business. We hope you will find the week useful and we look forward to speaking with you all throughout the week On behalf of our strategic partners, the WinTrade Executive team, our Advisory Board, and our Patrons we welcome you to the WinTrade Week Convention 2018.
