  On 1 December 2011 Ghalia Club and BPW Kuwait organised a conference on the  UN 7 principles of women empowerment at the Global Investment House in Kuwait.

I presented the principles and with the help of Hind Al-Nahedh of Ghalia Club and Najat AlHashash of BPW Kuwait we turned the very general principles into real up-to-date examples of Kuwait and the world.

The audience commented and discussed with the panel throughout the conference which turned the session into a very interactive exchange of views. Everyone was happy with the outcome that Kuwait is already implementing many of the principles. A very worthwhile conference!

On 28, 29 and 30 November I was fortunate enough to meet 25 budding women entrepreneurs in Kuwait. BPW Kuwait organised a workshop for women who were thinking about setting up a company or who had just done so.

We discussed how to set and achieve goals, manage  time, sources of support and funding and emarketing.

We had a fantastic 3 days with a lot of discussion, real-life examples, trouble shooting sessions and laughter. As you can see, the photo says it all!
