About this Event

Celebrations and Speaking Contest

It's time to put the spotlight on and celebrate women entrepreneurs and women in leadership, and those who collaborate with and support women to become their everything. The Women's Entrepreneurship Day is being celebrated in Luxembourg on November 15th this year and we have the coolest speaker panel ever!! Plus, a Speaking Contest where five local women entrepreneurs will take the stage.

Come join us for an evening of phenomenal panel discussions around how to face everything related to getting started with and/or getting ahead with your business. How do you get off the ground? How do you even get started? And how on earth do you take your business to the next level once you've managed with a lot of hard work to get past the phase of "very expensive hobby"? Or, if you're one of the few who's got a steady situation, but you want MORE, how do you get there?


Opening message from our Prime Minister, Mr. Xavier Bettel, spokesperson on the forefront of issues around equality, inclusion and gender diversity.

Flown in from all around the globe, and some locals, here is our speaker list with amazing stories to share:

James Cluskey: Richard Branson's private tennis coach, former ATP Pro and World Record holder

Dr. Betty Uribe: an Award-Winning C-Suite Executive in Financial Services, expert in turnarounds, bestselling author, former Executive VP of California Bank & Trust

Jean Carrillo: celebrity and world champion trainer, personally mentored by the best motivational speaker in the world, Jim Rohn

Annica Törneryd: award-winning mentor, mentored by the No 1 leadership profile in the world, John Maxwell.

We begin with powerful interviews and panel conversations, leading into a very empowering interactive part with Q&A from the audience, literally unfolding "The Entrepreneur's Handbook to Success". Bring all the questions you have and get in line to bring them to the expert panel.

After the panel conversation and questions, it is time for our:


Five local women entrepreneurs will be selected to share their story from the stage. We want to hear your message, your why, a success story, the truth about ongoing challenges, fear that feels overwhelming, how to beat the doubt, an empowering, entertaining, inspiring or provoking message. We want all that!
