Alliance Manchester Business School and The Girls Network will host an Inspiring Women’s Conference for Levenshulme and Whalley Range High School students later this month.
Students will spend their afternoon at Alliance Manchester Business School hearing from a panel of influential local business women, gaining invaluable advice and insight through inspirational life stories. They’ll also have the chance to attend interactive workshops covering creative problem solving, personal branding and communications, and advice on what to do next and how to follow your dreams.
