Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


6th June – Cardiff
Stop Selling Yourself Short



On International Women’s Day 2019 Alison Rose, Deputy CEO, NatWest Holdings, published the Alison Rose Review of Female Entrepreneurship, at the request of the UK Government. One of the findings is that women are less likely to believe they possess entrepreneurial skills. Only 39% of women are confident in their capabilities to start a business, compared to 55% of men. This is a perceived gap in ability, rather than an actual gap in skill sets.

That’s why we’ve joined forces with Funny Women to present HERlarious. This special event – part of NatWest Cymru’s It’s About Time series of events for women in business – will show you how to express your ideas more confidently using some of the tried and tested tricks of the comedy trade.

This workshop will be run by two experienced facilitators who reflect the ideals of Funny Women, helping women to perform, write and do business with humour. Recognised comedy experts, we deploy some of the tried and tested tricks of the comedy trade to provide insights and inspiration for your business.

Our workshop will cover:

  • Advice on how to ‘perform’, write great copy and bring your ideas to life
  • Techniques to communicate more effectively
  • Know your worth – tell your own story, create your own material, interpret body language, and become more confident and memorable
  • Attract your ideal clients – how to connect with them, virtually and in person, and how humour can help you keep them without being annoying.
  • De-stress in an instant by having some fun!
