    Event Summary

    The Rising Festival 2019 is a one-day event bringing together a diverse group of exceptional speakers for a programme of personal, practical and thought-provoking talks and workshops.


    Building on last year’s tremendously successful event, this year’s Festival promises to be even more valuable, with more than 30 speakers sharing their personal stories, tips for success and thoughts on some of the most fundamental issues facing women today.

    Taking place on Saturday 9 March 2019, one day after International Women’s Day, this is your opportunity to mark the global annual celebration of womanhood in the company of inspirational women from business, entrepreneurialism, the media and more.

    We invite you to take a day to pause, step back and regain some clarity. Join us for an agenda crammed full of interactive workshops and fascinating Open Conversations across four key themes; Inner Leadership and Career Journeys, Your Money Matters, Changing Direction and What’s Next.
