4th Annual European Summit

 

 

The 4th Annual Women’s Private Equity Summit will take place in London on 15 June 2017

Join us and connect with the next generation of women business leaders

 

Welcome to the WPEN Summit

We’re connecting the next generation of women business leaders

Now in its fourth year, the WPEN Summit has established itself as the pre-eminent event for women who undertake, or in future expect to undertake, leadership roles in the private investment industry as investors, deal-makers, expert service providers or business leaders. The Summit is first and foremost a business-focused event, designed to bring tangible business benefits to the participating individuals and organisations.

 

The format and content of the Summit are designed to enable all participants to:

 

• understand how their organisations can improve

  performance and profitability by nurturing and taking

  advantage of the enhanced talent available from a

  gender-balanced workforce; and

 

• make direct connections with valuable prospective

  clients and partners that lead to real deals getting done.

 

We have been fortunate that from the very beginning of the WPEN initiative we have had the support and participation of many of Europe’s most progressive organisations and most successful, high-profile women business leaders. As the word and goodwill has spread, we are now able to involve more organisations and more individuals. Whilst we will develop the initiative by rolling out new events in other regions, we will adhere to the proven format for each event in order to maintain the exclusivity, quality and value for all participants.

We have worked with an advisory board of valued women thought-leaders to develop the agenda, which features a series of engaging and inspiring presentations, discussions and debates, as well as invaluable networking opportunities. This year's agenda features a number of exciting new entries, including ‘An entrepreneur's tale - lessons on building a business & securing funding' followed by a special Q&A.

 

Following its success last year, we’ll also get ‘the view from the top' and hear from women Board Directors from some of the UK’s top listed companies. There’s plenty of focus on private equity developments with sessions addressing investor appetite, LP allocations, deal-flow and trends in venture capital and entrepreneurship. With the growing level of media attention of women in private investment and finance, we’re keen to find out what’s really changing.  Participant numbers will be limited to 250 and we anticipate that the Summit will be oversubscribed well in advance of the event date, as has happened for the previous three events.

The WPEN Summit is a must-attend event if you want to:

• Accelerate your career

• Raise your firm’s profile

• Extend your professional network
