Highlights of our 2017 Women Returners Conference

"I would thoroughly recommend the Women Returners Conference to anyone who has been out of work for a while and is unsure on how to get back into the working world. The energy, inspiration and practical tips that I received from both speakers and peers at the conference has given me confidence, direction and a kick-start to get back to work"
2017 Conference Attendee
“The conference was thought provoking and energising and a great reminder that women who have had career breaks are a hugely untapped but valuable market and that it is possible to get backinto the workplace.”


“The Career Direction session was an eyeopener for me and helped me identify what I really
wanted to get into. I think the conference is a great opportunity to clarify your thoughts, direction and prospects and make an action plan to get back into work.”


“Before today I knew nothing about returners’ programmes so everything was a revelation. Great to meet the employers/sponsors too.”

“Not only were the speakers excellent, but the attendees were interesting and stimulating as well! I found the conference motivating and inspirational yet practical.”


“Congratulations on a Monday well-spent! It has been a very positive experience. I enjoyed the mix of practical and inspirational content, the diversity in the personal stories and the tone and pace.”



“A confidence-building and informative conference that any potential returner programme candidate should attend.”

“It was a superb and much needed event, with an optimal balance and coverage of subjects. You provided an invaluable tool-kit to women like me.”


“Brilliant, brilliant conference. It had never occurred to me how many skills I have developed in numerous voluntary community roles “
