Women in Business - Westport Event

Inspiring West Coast Entrepreneurs

Around 50 people attended a recent ‘Celebration of Women in Business’ event at EPIC Westport.

The event was hosted by DWC trustee, Dame Julie Christie, and included presentations from local businesswomen Emily Miazga (Em's Power Cookies), Andrea Rogers (The Crafty Chook) and Patsy Bass (Reefton Distilling Co).

"The audience were treated to passionate talks from these inspirational female entrepreneurs who are all making the Coast proud with their achievements," Development West Coast events coordinator Rachel Doolan said.

The event provided a great opportunity for local businesspeople to network and be inspired.

“We are really grateful to the Westport community for getting behind the event. From Love Kawatiri and the Buller District Council to all the amazing businesswomen who donated spot prizes for the evening – so many people helped make the event such a success,” Rachel said.
