Alison Hernandez Bares Her Soul At Fempower Business Seminar
Crime Commissioner for Devon and Cornwall Police, Alison Hernandez, is the keynote speaker at a new Exeter business group called Fempower, whose aim is to help empower women in business who are faced with various obstacles and adversities from discrimination through to domestic abuse.
Alison Hernandez will be sharing her own personal experience of stalking and abuse, which, shows that no matter what status or station in life, many women experience these adversities, which can hamper their business progress. According to the Fempower founder, Linda,
‘These are real issues many women face, but are sometimes afraid to talk about, and through these events, with open discussions, mentoring opportunities and sharing personal experiences, it will help give women the confidence and knowledge to overcome such obstacles and adversities, and empower them to cope and succeed.”
At the very least it will spread the power of positivity.
“I too have had to work hard for my success,” says the founder, “It hasn’t been easy as I’ve encountered criticism, discouragement and discrimination, but by creating this opportunity for a progressive and supportive network of female business owners and professional women, it will help those faced with these issues, to realise their potential, gain confidence and remain optimistic in whatever they aspire to be.”
Also speaking at this Fempower Business seminar is Kate Doodson, Joint CEO, of Cosmic, sharing the latest updates on cybersecurity for women; and Maggi Green, from Maggi Green Image Consultancy, revealing her own harrowing story of emotional abuse and her ultimate success story.
This inaugural event includes networking opportunities and a 2-course lunch and takes place on the 23rd of May from 9.30am to 1.30pm at the Exeter Golf and Country Club, on Topsham Road.
While most of the content on the 23rd May is for women, supportive men are welcome to attend.
This event is not about pointing blame at anyone, it’s about changing perceptions and providing support to those who need it.
