Huddersfield Giants & Partners are excited to announce our next Women in Business Lunch Event at the John Smith’s Stadium on Wednesday 6th July!

The Huddersfield Giants Women In Business Lunch Event is a perfect time to come together, make some meaningful connections with other professional women, entrepreneurs, and small business owners.

July’s event is based on a theme around “Education”. With speakers from the educational sector to speakers educating you on you, they will be focusing on their own accomplishments through life, discuss their business and educate you on how you can manage yourself along with some key take outs, whilst accompanied by MC/comedian Peter Emmett.

Diane Andrew of ‘Diane Andrew Life Coach’:

How many of us have felt our cheeks burning and hearts racing? Those all too debilitating feelings of low self-esteem, imposter syndrome, low-confidence, and self-sabotage. Diane Andrew did. For someone who has always been naturally confident, life has dealt Diane its fair share of knocks. Fast forward through IVF, a divorce, leading to the loss of her job, a cancer diagnosis, treatment that led to early menopause, not to mention two house moves – all while caring for 3 children who needed her more than ever – Diane has felt the challenges life has thrown at her. Its Diane’s passion to help empower other women through life She’s now a qualified NLP Empowerment Coach and holds the key to a bright, new future. Listen to her motivational speech and you will find an inner strength in every step of life.

We will also be joined by Tania Fares, a qualified teacher who has worked as an assessor in Engineering and is now, Science Apprenticeships Co-ordinator and Laboratory Technician Trainer/Assessor at Kirklees College.
