As the title of the conference suggests, the goal is to inspire women and provide role models as we build on the company’s commitment to supporting women in financial services and to bridging the gap between female financial advisers. “
Sonia Wheeler, Managing Director of Essential Wealth Management, added: âI am delighted that the event is taking place this year, given the experiences and positivity of previous events. The agenda and the speakers have been carefully considered to inspire and engage.

Sonia and I have worked alongside Openwork from the beginning to bring three years of this conference to the female population of The Openwork Partnership, be they advisors or support staff and we missed it very much last year.
“The event is a chance to network, to learn, to grow, to be inspired by people both within the industry and outside to try to encourage more women in the profession more fantastic that we all love. “
