Des started his career as a Relationship Coach (as he won the APCTC Award in 2013) and held several Dating and Relationship Conferences and conferences for Single Women in London and the UK. The speakers and attendees at Des’s events were 80% women and they provided so much value; Des noticed that most other seminars in his industry were hosted and promoted by men, and most of the speakers were men. He investigated with several male events promoters as to why there was a lack of speaking opportunities for women; many other events promoters told Des that “women lack confidence” to speak on stage.
Des then decided to turn this “myth” upside down. He knew from experience that women were excellent speakers with wonderful professional expertise to share, and he wanted to do more to help women in business achieve their potential. So he decided to launch “Des O’Connor’s Women in Business,” his first event of its kind, in September 2017, where 15 speakers spoke on stage (8 for the first time) and there were 163 attendees. To date, Des’s events have had over 1000 attendees and 128 speakers on stage, many of whom were overlooked and excluded from other industry seminars. No one in the world has focused on this audience of promoting Women in Business and helping so many women business experts launch and expand their brands.
Now Des is launching his Women in Business project in the USA (California) on July 26/27 and in Birmingham (UK) on August 4.
In the time since he launched his first Women in Business Conference in London in September 2017, Des has hosted several conferences and professional development events in 2018 and so far 3 in 2019, as he provides speaking opportunities for women to expand their businesses and build their audiences.
Des O’Connor’s Women in Business events give you the opportunity to learn from a panel of experts on topics ranging from social media, public speaking, internet marketing, networking, investing, book publishing and more!
As part of his coaching and consulting for business experts, Des also creates opportunities for international speakers to come to the UK to speak on stage, and for UK business experts to attain international speaking opportunities in the U.S. and other countries. Every Des O’Connor event features an exciting line-up of top business leaders and professional speakers.
