Join us for an evening celebrating female trailblazers in sport and business
Trailblazer events are designed to encourage and empower women who wish to work in sport or business by providing a forum for them to hear from influential women who are leaders in these areas. Our speakers are united because they have all achieved success in roles and sectors traditionally dominated by men.
This year’s event will be hosted by Football Focus and BBC Sport Reporter Kelly Somers. We’re also delighted to announce that we've confirmed CEO of Resource Solutions Norma Gillespie who was recently named in the ‘2021 Global Power 150 – Women in Staffing list’, co-founder of the NatWest Girls Can Code network and founding member of Tech She Can, Wincie Wong, and Founder of the Female Lead Edwina Dunn as members of our business panel on the evening.
Our aspiration is that every woman who attends Trailblazers leaves believing that anything is possible and that glass ceilings are there to be broken.
Our next event will take place on Thursday 21 September at The Kia Oval where our panellists will reflect upon their successes and their personal journey both professionally and personally, providing candid viewpoints, insights and stories of the challenges women can face and the barriers they’ve overcome.
Guests will also have the opportunity to network with the speakers and other guests before and after the main event.
All money raised by the event will go to the NSPCC’s life-changing Childline Service.

A charity event that makes a difference
Our last in-person event raised an incredible figure of over £27,000.
We couldn't have done this without all the fantastic organisations and individuals who helped make the event such a success.
Our past events have been sponsored by Resource Solutions and have included speakers like Dame Kelly Holmes, Ama Agbeze, Sam Quek, Dina Asher-Smith and Lucy Bronze.
"I want to thank Childline for saving my life. If you hadn’t called me an ambulance I don’t know what would have happened. I’m out of hospital now and feeling fine."
