Elizabeth Whatley of Create, said: “Enterprise in Heels was set up to encourage more female students to consider self employment and entrepreneurship as a career option.
“The workshop last November was a huge success and the positive feedback from students convinced us there was a demand for further events.
“We hope that by sharing their experience and success stories the speakers will inspire our students to take that first step into the challenging but exciting world of enterprise.”
