5 Reasons You Should Attend a Women Entrepreneurship Conference

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word conference?

Opportunities? Growth? Values? Networking?

Well, in all reality, attending a conference especially one on female entrepreneurship offers endless opportunities, information and substantial potential values. You will make meaningful contacts with other strong women who have the same drive with you to empower themselves as they work on achieving their goals; for themselves and our nation. 

According to the Stanford Research Institute, the success of a business depends 87.5% on the ability to connect to people internally and externally and the other remaining 12.5% on the employees’ and management’s knowledge and experience. 

As a businesswoman, networking and contacts are necessities for you to survive in this ever-growing competitive business world. Seeking out a conference where you can network with other successful female entrepreneurs can empower you to grow not only as a person, but also for your business. 

If you’ve thought of going to a conference but you are still on the fence, we have listed down 5 reasons you should definitely check one out. 

Learn from the Best of the Best

Hey, everyone who attends a conference is already THE BEST at something. So all the speakers you see talking on stage in front of you with little to no stutters are the best of the best. 

But here’s the thing, no entrepreneur can be an expert on everything, no matter how skilled, talented or competent they are. They have to make mistakes before they can advance forward and some speakers may use their past experiences to share them with you during the conference, hence, you may minimize or avoid the mistakes they have made and boost your business! As a result, you can save a lot of your time, money and energy!

You may also take note of their body language, the way they speak to the audience, how they present their ideas and themselves, the level of confidence and calmness they exude and the knowledge they share with everyone listening. 

Go Get That Inspiration!

The biggest takeaway of a conference is the chance to be inspired by what you see and hear. If you’re always in your circle without getting out of your comfort zone, you may find that your creativity will become dull over time. Your creativity needs to be fed with new sources every now and then. 

Attending a conference can introduce you to a lot of inspiring people. Speakers that talk on stage can be a source of inspiration for you. You will take advantage of new ideas and at the same time, these women will help you spark a way to pivot your business. Many businesswomen have come back from a conference with a renewed sense of purpose and a breath of fresh air filled with brand new ideas.

Make a Lot of Connections

The life of an entrepreneur can be lonely and isolating especially when you aren’t surrounded by an established community that wholeheartedly supports you. 

One way you can shake this off is to make connections outside of your circles. Conferences allow you to have the opportunity to do that! Mingle around with other businesswomen and who knows if one of them can help you to make your dreams come true! ✨

Business is more about who we know rather than what we know. Yes, both are important but someone in the crowd may just be your golden ticket to bloom your business! 

And moms, don’t be shy! Being afraid to mingle halts your big opportunity! Remember, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!

Build Your Own Brand

Creating awareness has always been one of the most difficult challenges for new businesses and it’s even harder now with a lot of competition trying to be the cream of the crop. 

Attending a women entrepreneurship conference can expose you to meet potential clients and collaborators who may become your future lifelong business partners! In this way, you can increase your brand awareness and recognition. 

Regarding collaborations, you can connect with these businesswomen, who we guess would also love to collaborate with you and find support in each other therefore, creating awareness that extends outside of the conference room. 

Learn About Your Industry

It’s not surprising that there are always some entrepreneurs who are so focused on their business that whenever major disruptions or crises occur in their related industry, they’re entirely caught off guard. And the next thing they know, their business which they have built years upon years just comes crashing down due to lack of awareness on the bigger aspect. 

It’s easy to focus so much on your niche and ignore what’s happening in the wider industry. It’s important to know what’s happening in your industry and the world. A smart businesswoman should be prepared for the larger landscape and plans for multiple possible outcomes. 

A conference would allow you to take a look and know what’s happening outside of your bubble. Even if the person you sit and talk to is not from the same industry, she might have known a few things about it. A trip to a conference can give you some truths that you have otherwise never learned.
