Shenzhen Women in Business Forum

Following on from last year’s successful event, the British Chamber of Commerce Guangdong is planning on holding its 2019 Women in Business (WIB) Forum in Shenzhen on 31st May. The event has been held for 7 years in a row in Guangzhou and Shenzhen and welcomed over 200 guests each year. 

Through this forum, the BritCham hopes to establish a platform for women to exchange and inspire each other, allowing them to find their true character and place in life. 

Theme of The Year is Balance for Better. From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence.

Balance is not a women's issue, it's a business issue. The race is on for the gender-balanced boardroom, a gender-balanced government, a gender-balance of employees, more gender-balance in wealth, gender-balanced media coverage, gender-balanced sports coverage ...Gender balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive.

Amazing speakers of this forum include: 

  • Kara Wutzke, founder and head coach of K2Fit, an online fitness training platform, with the topic of "How Cancer Made Me Better, but I Still Wouldn’t Recommend it!"

  • Chelsea Perino, managing director of Global Marketing & Communications in the Executive Centre with the topic of “Following Your Gut: Making Decisions That Help You Stay Balanced”.
