2018 Women in Business Forum 第七届杰出商业女性

The 7th Women in Business Forum was successfully organized by The British Chamber of Commerce Guangdong. This year’s event was held on 11th May, 2018 at the magnificent Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai Hotel, and the theme of the Forum was #PressforProgress.

由广东英国商会主办的以#PressforProgress为主题的第七届杰出商业女性论坛于2018 年 5 月 11 日在华丽的深圳蛇口希尔顿南海酒店圆满落幕。

2018 Women in Business (WIB) was held in Shenzhen for the third consecutive year, and we were delighted to welcome more than 200 attendees, including business women from many different industries, nationalities and levels of experience. We were also delighted to have a number of men in the audience, who were there to show support to their friends and colleagues, and to also get inspired!



We were honoured to be able to invite six inspiring women leaders, each bring their own stories and personal journeys to be the guest speakers of WIB. They were:



Kirsten Molyneux

CEO & senior management consultant of Shenzhen Yuanlai Consulting Co.,Ltd.

Each of the speakers brought their own unique perspectives and ideas to the stage, providing the audience with a wide range of amusing, insightful and at times emotional stories.



In addition to inspiring our audience, we also wanted to inform and educate them too. To help us with this aim, we were delighted to invite Kirsty Hulston, Senior Manager at Hays Guangzhou, who presented the Hays Asia Gender Diversity Report. Kirsty highlighted some of the key elements of the report, covering areas such as the career ambitions of men vs. women, attitudes to flexible working and equal opportunity.

除了激励观众,我们还希望给来宾带来最新的干货资讯,因此我们邀请到瀚纳仕人才管理咨询有限公司广州高级经理Kirsty Hulston给大家展示了《瀚纳仕亚洲性别多元化报告》中的主旨内容,包括男性和女性的职业抱负、


The afternoon was a huge success and it was great to see so many of our audience taking inspiration from the panel of speakers, and the conversations and sharing of stories continued long after the event closed!
