Motivation and fun

6 March 2017

International Women's Day takes place each year on the 8th March, with a whole host of exciting events happening across the globe to mark the occasion.

We can all use some motivation and inspiration in our businesses every now and then, so no matter your business and no matter your gender, get into the spirit of International Women’s Day by following these inspirational female business leaders (and women-focused networking groups) on Twitter. 

The Next Women (@TheNextWomen)

This accelerator was set up to support and fund female entrepreneurs, so it's unsurprising that its Twitter feed is chock-a-block with inspiring articles geared towards women in business. It also shares information about upcoming networking events and interviews with inspirational business leaders. Following the Twitter account is a good way to try out its community for free.

Alice Korngold (@AliceKorngold)

CEO Alice Korngold started her career as a social entrepreneur, and literally wrote the book on why corporations should focus on solving global environment, economic and social problems. When she's not saving the world through her business consultancy, Korngold shares content on Twitter about business leadership. She also has a firm focus on promoting other women.

DAWN London (@dawnnetwork)

The Digital Advertising Women's Network (DAWN) hosts numerous events each year designed to inspire and develop women working in the digital industry. Its theme for 2017 will be Taking Control, with four quarterly events focusing on different areas of life (confidence, finances, negotiation and diversity). Its Twitter account highlights interesting articles, and it often promotes other female-focused events taking place in the capital.

Anne Ravanona (@anneravanona)

Anne is the founder and CEO of Global Invest Her, an organisation aimed at helping to demystify the funding process for women entrepreneurs and help female-driven businesses get access to finance. Her Twitter account gives great advice for women looking to secure funding for new business projects – she also shares information about funding opportunities and applications aimed at women, as well as webinars and networking events.

Bloom (@BloomUK)

Bloom is a networking group for British women working in communications, with a focus on mentoring, networking and fundraising. Like DAWN, its Twitter account regularly cross-promotes other interesting events for female entrepreneurs in London while also sharing thinkpieces around women in business.

Digital Nomad Girls (@NomadGirls)

This group offers inspiration for freelance women who have toyed with the idea of travelling while working. As well as organising retreats in glamorous destinations, it also shares interviews with women who have unusual online jobs. In addition, it offers printable resources for planning business strategies and an active Facebook group.
