Women's History Month | International Women's Day | Mother's Day
This month we are bringing together a diverse group of individuals to continue to celebrate and support women, young future entrepreneurs and the startup/ business community. Meet and connect other ambitious founders and business leaders from a variety of industries at an event aimed at connecting you to the right people. Join us and expand your network, to not only gain valuable contacts and potential clients, but also receive support and encouragement from those in our community who understand the challenges of starting and growing a business.
In addition to networking, you'll also have the opportunity to learn from successful female leaders who have already achieved great success in their respective fields. You'll gain insights into their journeys, learn about the challenges they faced, and discover strategies for success that you can apply to your own startup.
Our female-themed event also provides a platform for you to showcase your own business and gain exposure for your brand. You'll have the chance to pitch your ideas and products to other attendees, receive feedback, and potentially even gain new customers. This event is open to everyone, regardless of gender, and is designed to highlight the importance of empowering and investing in female-led businesses and the next generation of leaders.

I have worked in financial services all of my life, having started in school running the then “Midland Bank” at lunchtimes for young savers. I was fortunate to be encouraged by my grandfather who had been a bank manager himself and complete with a good dose of inspiration from the TV Series Wonder Woman I embarked on life believing that I really could have it all and I could be a superhero!
Fast forward several years and I am now involved in 3 financial service sector companies assisting clients with tax and accountancy, company formation and management and financial planning and investment.
The road has been bumpy to say the least and it has been hard to maintain my commitment to the industry and self-belief at times. This industry sector has traditionally been male dominated, possibly a reflection of the previous generation’s approach in which the breadwinner, who was typically male, would also manage the household’s financial arrangements.
I am fortunate that one of my superpowers is being able to listen, together with being able to empathise means that I can really understand my clients’ needs and I am able to gauge the level at which I need to explain their options. I truly believe that this is partly because I am a woman and those skills have been fine tuned since I was a child. I identify as female and society has always treated me in a certain way due to the sex I was born with. This has shaped the person I have become and I celebrate who I am.
It’s important to celebrate differences. Through discussion, debate and even disagreement we make change and develop. Men and women are different. We shouldn’t try to be the same, but we do need to be equitable. We need to provide opportunities for all, we need to give the job to the best person and we need to provide support where it is needed.

Co-founded 2 startups in E-health and Digital Marketing before serving a Key role in Capex.com, as CFO and currently as CSO, focusing on company’ overall strategy to expand its trading platform and Fintech services.
For the last 5 years he is the Operational Head of a Family Office, responsible for screening and evaluation of projects, due-diligence and transaction/investment. Portfolio range from Tech Startups to Real-Estate (some directly managed) and more recently Renewable Energies (Solar Park).
Ricardo is an avid learner and keeps up with the latest trends, recently with a particular interest in blockchain technology and the impact it can have in all aspects of society and business.
I have been a teacher for 33 years, working in both the UK and Gibraltar. I have worked in both the state and the private sectors and was Head of English for 6 years at Beaconsfield High School before I moved to Wycombe Abbey. At the latter school where I taught for 17 years, I honed my university advising skills, training staff on applications and references and working on a one-to-one basis with students as a senior leader in the Sixth Form and Head of Lower Sixth. In my final years there I became the school’s Overseas Universities Advisor, working with students applying to American institutions as well as Canada and Hong Kong. For the past 3 years I have been Head of Sixth Form and member of the SLT at Prior Park School in Gibraltar. I am extremely proud of the destinations of our Sixth Form leavers which include Oxford, Imperial, Durham, UCL, Bristol, Bath and Southampton and whose degree choices range from Medicine to Fine Art. My aim is to give clear advice to young people at a vital stage in their life, thus enabling them to make informed choices. As a parent of two young men aged 21 and 23, I understand the difficulties students can encounter and appreciate the best ways of supporting them. In August 2022 I decided to leave classroom teaching. I now work as an independent advisor for some institutions including Prior Park as well as private clients.
Gibraltar CiPD Branch
School of Business
The Gibraltar CIPD Branch is taking part in the CIPD’s One Million Chances campaign, which aims to create more opportunities for young
people to enter the workforce. With the primary responsibility for talent acquisition, HR practitioners in Gibraltar are looking for ways to reach a younger audience and bring industry experts and young people together. Our aim is to make Gibraltar’s youth aware of the vast array of career opportunities available here, so that we can help expand the home grown talent pool, encourage alternative learning pathways to university, and ultimately recruit more people locally, rather than from abroad.
The Gibraltar CIPD Branch together with the Youth Service are collaborating to create an online careers portal for young people in Gibraltar which will include short videos and infographics on the wide range of careers available locally and different career pathways, personal success stories, and job hunting skills. With a strong focus on local business people featuring in the short video clips, the website aims to ultimately become a one-stop shop for careers guidance and inspiration in Gibraltar. Students and their families will be free to connect at their leisure and gain an insight into the plethora of careers paths available in their home town.

CYE-CYL (pronounced as ‘Cycle’) is an acronym for Change your Energy, Change Your Life. We provide training and development programmes for young people between the ages of 12-21, encouraging them to live with confidence, drive, and ambition. We aspire to prompt participants to act with purpose, encouraging them to feel they can make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others. We do this through our different programmes; The 'Summer Challenge', The Innovation Hub and Travel with a Purpose.
The Summer Challenge is a 3 week programme, separated into three phases. Week 1 is the Outdoor Challenge, whereby participants develop their bonds through a week residential full of outdoor activities, such as kayaking, climbing, abseiling and more. Week 2 is the Innovation Challenge, an eclectic mix of The Apprentice meets Dragons Den, whereby participants bring out their inner entrepreneur and plan a SALE DAY in which profits go towards a charity partner of their choice. Finally, Week 3 is the Community Challenge, where participants spend time volunteering with a community partner. Participants choose between photography, media, drama or sports, and liaise with a community partner to carry out a FUN DAY with service users or members of our community partner.
After the success of the summer challenge, last year saw the launch of 'The Innovation Hub'. This initiative aims to continue providing participants with the skills to succeed in their personal, academic and/or professional lives, through regular events and activities within schools and outside. Finally, our 'Travel with a Purpose' initiative was launched just before the turn of the year. Aiming to prompt participants to continue volunteering with those who need it the most, we have decided to collaborate with Help Me Learn Africa to embark on a journey to Ghana, whereby a group of young local adults will assist locals in the construction of educational facility in Maranatha camp, Ada
