Rachel Elnaugh said: “This is a fantastic time for women to thrive through creating and growing their own business and I love events aimed at female entrepreneurs.

“The energy of optimism and co-creative collaboration is always awesome.

“At LadyFest I’ll be talking about my own learnings having taken a company from nothing more than an idea into a market-leading £multi-million business, some of the key principles on how you can get into immediate flow of prosperity around money, as well as the current shift in consciousness meaning businesses run with ‘feminine’ values are now far more likely to succeed.”


Her appearance has been arranged and paid for by Preston firm Remsol.

It’s boss Lee Potts said: “As an organisation that is active in the local community and one that recognises the role of women in business, we wanted to make a contribution to the upcoming LadyFest.

“We know that Rachel Elnaugh is a fantastic speaker and has plenty of experience to draw on. She will be talking to women with a particular emphasis on inspiring them to become entrepreneurs and succeed in business.”

LadyFest is a three day festival with a host of events taking place including music, comedy and workshops.

It’s organised by Millie Lavelle and more information is available on the LadyFest Preston website.
