Your Way Global Women’s Conference Set to inspire Global Post-Pandemic Success This November – UK Business News

Your Way Global Women’s Conference Set To Inspire Global Post-Pandemic Success This November

October 11, 2021
International Business Leader and TEDx Speaker Bernie Davies is looking forward to this November’s ‘Your Way’ Global Women’s Conference where a diverse range of global women business leaders will come together to discuss the challenges of a post-pandemic economic climate, prepare for what’s next and support, educate and guide one another to success.

Conference leader and international sought after speaker Bernie explains:

“This is the second of my annual Conferences which was inspired last year by the success of my bestselling Book Your Business Your Way.

Readers resonated with my perspective as a wife and mother from a career in law, divorce, health challenges and loss; to becoming a successful multi-award winning serial entrepreneur, Swansea and West Wales Franchise Owner of Introbiz and CEO & Founder of Bernie Davies Global Ltd.

“However I haven’t done it all alone – I’ve been inspired and encouraged by my fellow female business leaders and regularly put their advice into practice – as well as sharing my own advice with mentorees and network members.

“I felt it would be wonderful for women across the world to come together, celebrate success and inspire each other – and the “Your Way” Global Women’s Conference was born in November 2020.”

“Last year’s lineup boasted an ITV Presenter, an Emmy Ward Winner, The Global Customer Director of The Coca-Cola Company, a Barclays Bank Director, the owner of a part of Amsterdam Harbour, Bestselling Authors and more!

“As the whole world seeks to recover from the impact of the pandemic – and we all have adapted to new, more inclusive ways of working, thanks to technology, the timing of the second event could not be better.”

With an impressive selection of speakers and delegates from across the Globe, this year’s Event kicks off at 9am with a talk by in-demand motivational speaker Bernie, followed by an exciting range of business speakers from across the world, including:

HEADLINE SPEAKER- Alison Edgar MBE, BESTSELLING UK AUTHOR

Why the Main Stream Media is Dangerous…

As a positive person, I choose to avoid the main stream negative media because basically it’s a joke at best, or at worst it’s extremely dangerous. With just one negative story after another the main stream media is extremely dangerous and extremely damaging to our psychology.

The problems with the main stream media is that it doesn’t report the news, it delves into the news and explores every negative story (there is no positive news, as nothing positive ever happens in the world), from every possible angle, filling the airwaves with constant repetitive exploration of the negative news or incident that happened.

As a global citizen, every now and then I choose to quickly dip in to the news to get the facts, not the exploration of those facts, and then I quickly dip out of it, in order to protect my sanity and when I dip in I often see the media exploring why things have gone wrong with one thing or another, not realising that they have often caused the negativity that they are reporting on themselves, or at least added to it or made it worse.

For example at the moment their is a fuel shortage in some petrol stations because of panic buying.

If the one or two stations that run out of petrol, we’re not reports on so vigorously at the beginning of the crisis, then the problem would not have exacerbated and there wouldn’t have been a fuel shortage crisis, but oblivious to the psychological effect that they have on the mass population, they continue to report on the problem, helping to continue its growth.

The media caused the panic buying of petrol just like it did with the panic buying of toilet rolls at the start of the pandemic.

It also stops many people from leaving the house because death is just around every corner.

If the media was controlled, in order to be balanced, was made to report on all news, not just negative news, and was limited in the time it could share its “news”, then this would massively impact and limit the amount of psychological damage it’s allowed to make on the nation.

Top 10 Dating App Tips from a marketing professional & relationship expert!

Having been single during most of the pandemic, I have used a number of dating apps, and as a marketing professional and relationship expert, I’m surprised at how wrong some people get their dating app profiles, so I just thought I’d share my top 10 tips to help people get more out of these apps these the might be doing so already!

1. Make sure you have a Number of Good Profile Pictures and that they are All of You!

The number of times you see pictures of multiple people (which one are you?), pets (am I dating a dog), positive quotes (who are you), cropped pictures (what do you look like) and kids (so you have children), is ridiculous?

2. Don’t have a Picture with your Shirt Off (or over doing it on the show of Flesh)!

This is cheesy and don’t look good to most women! (And is going to get you the wrong sort of attention if you’re a woman – unless you want that sort of attention)!

3. Fill Your Profile In Fully (and make it interesting)!

Use the opportunity to showcase your best points, hobbies and interests etc. So you can find someone who has things in common with you rather than be contacted by any random person or no one as there’s no details or info to make a judgement on!

4. Read the Profiles to the end, before getting in touch!

Get an understanding of the person tour contacting before contacting them and then select some info from the profile to use as an ice breaker when you make your introduction.

5. Don’t send DP’s (D*ck Pics)!

Most women don’t want them and if they do, they prefer them down the line when they get to know you, and want to get intimate with you!

6. Don’t Match with People and then Ghost them!

Communication is key so if you match with someone then reply to them and don’t just ignore them for days even if you are busy and not on the app regular.

7. Be Exiting and Enthusiastic in your Communication and Make An Effort!

Don’t just respond to questions with one word answers and make an effort to be enthusiastic in your conversation and make yourself interesting rather than someone who is uninspired and uninterested in life with nothing going on.

8. Try not to use Images that have other People Scribbled Out In.

This just doesn’t look good and show lack of effort. Surely you have pictures of you alone or can take some selfies etc. Come on Make an Effort!

9. Remember that Dating is a Contact Sport!

Most people are looking for a date and not a pen pal so after a bit if chat move the process on to an actual date or video chat to see whether you get on and their is potential to move things along!

10. Don’t use Images from Years Ago!

If you’re using an image from 10 years ago and you can see clearly that it’s not an up to date picture then you are admitting that you aren’t confident in how you look now and can prevent some matches. You can also end up on a date with someone who’s expecting something different than what turns up and can end up wasting a lot of time with this approach.
