1. International Women’s Day is held annually on March 8 to celebrate women’s achievements throughout history and across nations. Much progress has been made to protect and promote women’s rights. The first International Women’s Day occurred in March 1911.
2. The large majority of business networking takes place usually in unsociable hours, often as early as 7.30am in the morning, which excludes women with childcare responsibilities as they find it difficult to attend. Headz Up Business addresses this gap in the market and has a range of lunchtime networking events to support women business owners.

Having worked at some of the largest UK Venues, and on many UK corporate companies marketing campaigns, Pushpa Alexander set up her own business Headz Up Business. Being a mum of 3 children (all under the age of 7yrs) herself, she had noticed that the majority of business networking events took place at unsociable hours, often as early as 7.30am in the morning. They were usually male dominated as many women with children found it difficult to attend due to school drop offs. She therefore decided to offer female only and mixed networking events at times which would allow time friendly business 2 business networking.
