Karren Brady’s Women in Business & Tech Expo powers up for October return in London

Baroness Karren Brady’s Women in Business & Tech Expo returns to London this autumn with plans to be bigger and better and a goal to empower professionals and shine a light on organisations who champion diverse workforces and equal opportunities. 

Taking place 12-13 October 2022 at Excel London, Karren Brady's Women in Business & Tech Expo is a two-day event and will represent the fourth edition of this female-led exhibition and conference. 

The event will see a programme of inspiring CEOs, technology leaders, career-influencers and entrepreneurs discuss a range of topics and themes, including leadership, STEM careers, diversity and inclusion, career progression, business strategies, business transformation, upskilling and reskilling, returning to work after a career break, entering new industries and more. 

The 2021 edition featured award-winning model and businesswoman Caprice Bourret, singer and businesswoman Mel B, founder and CEO of Starling Bank Anne Boden, editor of the UK edition of Elle Farrah Storr, CEO of Bonnier Books UK Perminder Mann, and founder of Northern Power Futures & Northern Power Women Simone Roche MBE. They shared their expertise and thought leadership to more than 4,000 attendees. This year, British businesswoman, entrepreneur and Dragon Sara Davies MBE will take to the stage to inspire attendees with her vast experience within the online market and entrepreneurship. 

2022 event sponsors Amazon, Dell, Adobe, Cisco, CGI, Accenture, McDonalds, Capital One, Goldman Sachs, Experian and Morgan Stanley join the diverse technology, recruitment and business exhibitors in advocating diverse workforces and showcasing their services throughout the event.  

Christie Day, group event director at Hub Exhibition, organisers of Karren Brady's Women in Business & Tech Expo, said: “According to Tech Nation, nearly three million people are employed in the UK tech industry but just 26% of those in the tech workforce are women and UENI's recent report on gender and small business highlighted only 32% of businesses in the UK are female owned. There is still an incredible amount of work to be done to close this gap within the industries.

“Karren Brady's Women in Business & Tech Expo is a pivotal event in the calendar, not just for professionals looking to develop their careers, businesses or explore new avenues, but for organisations who put diversity, equality and inclusion at the forefront of their values and recruitment strategy. We look forward to empowering individuals across the working landscape at Excel London this October.”
