All women! Enter this competition NOW!

Calling all women*!

The Inspire Initiative is a competition born out of the Higgins’ Celebrating Women of Bedfordshire exhibition.  Until the 23 September, the Wixamtrees Gallery is full of inspiring women whose stories speak to all women and they provided the inspiration to Business Mentor, Elizabeth Toogood, who wanted to take this opportunity to help the next generation of amazing female Bedfordians.






Elizabeth is featured in the Higgins exhibition and is an experienced mentor with forty years in the business world as both an executive and non-executive director and chief executive. She is passionate about sharing her knowledge and skills to raise up women to reach their potential.

The competition invites 21st century women to enter and win the opportunity to enjoy business mentoring to enable them to achieve their ambitions.

It is open to any woman who lives or works in Bedfordshire, at any stage of their career and working in any sector. Maybe you’re just starting out, or want to expand. Maybe you need to challenge yourself, or challenge others. Whatever your situation, Elizabeth is here to help!!

There are two prizes up for grabs:

The Judges’ award is two years’ free mentoring with Liz Toogood of Elizabeth Toogood Critical Friend.  Everyone who enters will then be automatically entered into a prize draw, drawn on 9th July.  The prize draw winner will receive a year’s mentoring.

The deadline for entries is 6pm on 2nd July.

*The competition is not open to women in full-time employment.
