BWIB Annual Conference and Awards 2019 Promises to be the Best Ever!

Have you got your ticket yet for the BWIB Annual Conference and Awards 2019 on 24 September at Wroxton House Hotel?

This year it is going to be amazing, not only is there a fantastic line up of finalists to recognise and celebrate their achievements but also Cerys Nelmes, a stand-up comedian will host the event, on top of two very inspiring speakers who will take the floor in the morning:

Sarah Outen

In November 2015 Sarah completed her most recent major expedition: London2London:Via the World, an attempt to row, cycle and kayak 25000 miles around the Northern Hemisphere. The journey took 4.5 years and was all the richer for not turning out exactly as planned.
Lisa Phillips

A former Internal Auditor working across 15 countries for a UK multinational company, Lisa has also held Management roles in Training, Staff Engagement and Communication in the UK, Singapore and Australia.
