• 09.15 - 16.30 Conference
  • 16:30 - 17:30 Networking drinks reception

When we come together as an empowered community, amazing things happen...

After the resounding success of our 2023 conference, ‘The Power of You,’ where we celebrated and empowered every individual in the Meat Business Women community, our theme has evolved for 2024...

Introducing ‘The Power of Us’.

By working together as an empowered community, collaborating with allies and drawing inspiration from other industries, we can amplify our impact and continue building an inclusive sector for everyone. This is The Power of Us!

The Conference...

Get ready to elevate your knowledge, upskill, embrace empowerment and take meaningful action towards a more inclusive industry at Meat Business Women’s UK & Ireland conference 2024.

You’ll hear key insights from leaders at the forefront of retail, foodservice and processing, as well as how they’ve embraced their own power to help them climb the career ladder.

Panel sessions: You'll hear stories of leaders from outside our industries who have carved their own path of empowerment and inclusion. Learn more about male allyship in practise in the workplace.

Learn how to shine in your career, company and industry (even as an introvert) led by an executive coach.

We’re all about creating authentic connections, so you’ll have the chance to connect in a relaxed environment throughout the day, and over a glass of fizz during our drinks reception at the end of the day.
