With 100+ women entrepreneurs and women-led startups participating in the 1 Day Event, the main purpose of the conclave is to encourage women entrepreneurs to explore influencer marketing and understand digital transformation through masterclasses, panel discussions, expert talks, fireside chats and mentoring sessions, connecting entrepreneurs to influencers, women technology leaders, community leaders, authors and more.
“Women who launched businesses routinely report that they have had to defy stereotypes and overcome others’ expectations of them; they also cited the lack of female role models in business. Another undetected issue that women entrepreneurs are facing today, are the lack of resources and acceptance to embrace digital transformation in business. Women might not have the flexibility to travel across the world, but an online presence helps them to create a world of possibilities outside their comfort zone and the Digital Influencers Conclave for Women addresses just that” says Vandhana, CEO & Co-Founder of WSquare
The conclave from 10 am to 5.30 pm started with the First Panel of The Day a KeyNote & FireSide Chat with Doug Gilbert – CIO & Chief Digital Officer of Sutherland, Robert Ackland – Vice President EMEA of GoDaddy and Akshay Sonthalia – Head of Business Development , EMEA, Google on the topic of Digital Transformation: A Catalyst to Break the Glass Ceiling, Interacting with Leaders on the Future of Work Defined by World Leaders.

“It was highly motivating to hear such amazing thoughts by women who shared their personal experiences and journeys with us to not just tell us to follow our dreams but also stand strong and make it happen. I have never attended an event with all women attendees and an all women panel in London so far. Really glad I could attend this one of a kind event” says Alice J, Entrepreneur and Attendee.
