A conference for women in business is to take place at Whittlebury Hall.

The CareerSpa conference has the theme of unlocking your career potential and will look at career opportunities and how to achieve a greater work-life balance.

Organsisers Gill Amos and Jane Sumner, announced their keynote speakers, Joanna McKerlie from ‘Downton Abbey at home’ and Cassie Farren, author, speaker and trainer, for this year’s event which is on Friday, May 15.

Joanna McKerlie, Founder of Downton Abbey at home said: “Being asked to speak at this unique conference is very exciting. CareerSpa is a great opportunity to talk with like-minded women whether they are re-thinking careers, growing an existing business or even planning a startup. I can’t wait.”

Joanna has personal experience of turning adversity into an opportunity. After yet another redundancy and countless knock backs, Joanna McKerlie harnessed an unexpected opportunity to develop the ‘Downton Abbey at home’ mail order business which launched in October 2014. With almost 30 years hands on and board level experience in the ever-changing multi-channel retail world, Joanna aims to offer hope for those facing change in their career or workplace.

Cassie Farren, author, speaker and trainer said: “I want to make a difference, inspiring others to live their life fearlessly, and never give up.”

Jane Sumner, Organiser of CareerSpa comments: “The aim of this year’s event is to provide women with a wealth of tips, ideas and support to give them greater confidence to make good decisions about their careers today and plan for the future.”

Tickets start at £130 each when purchasing two or more, and £150 for a single ticket. There is also the opportunity to experience Whittlebury Hall’s Fire & Ice Spa. Terms and conditions apply. For more information visit CareerSpa. You can follow them on Twitter @CareerSpaUK
