Event description

Description

According to the report - "Spotlight on Asian Business on their contribution to London" compiled by the Indo- European Business Forum - One-third of Asian businesses in London are owned by women, and at least 57% have a female director, which is higher than the national average, and shows the rise of entrepreneurialism amongst Asian women in London.

If you are an Asian woman - running a business for a minimum of 3 years please come and join us to an informal roundtable discussion on the rise of Asian Women in Business. The key topics of discussion are: how we can collectively support each other, what support there is available in Wandsworth, what challenges Asian women face in running a business and how we can overcome the cultural barriers facing Asian women business owners in the UK.

This event is part of the Wandsworth Enterprise Week. We would like to invite Asian Women business owners to contribute to this discussion by sharing their stories, challenges and successes with other like- minded Asian Business Owners.

Although now the proud owner of Deelicious by Nazish Omar, Crepes and Cakes by Nazish and Spice by Nazish, she has not always been interested in the culinary industry. With degrees from the Institute of Business Administration in Pakistan, Cambridge and NYU, Nazish spent over a decade working in the financial industry as both a banker and a financial consultant.

It was only in 2010 that she realised that creating desserts is what truly made her happy and she decided to pursue her passion full time. After receiving yet another diploma, this time from renowned culinary institution Le Cordon Bleu, Nazish opened, Deelicious, the first branch of her now blooming business.

It has been nearly eight years since Deelicious the opening of Deelicious in London's Tooting Bec and the location now serves as a location for Nazish to meet with clients as well as a patisserie. Spice by Nazish, the newest location, opened just this month in Tooting Broadway's booming market.
