Entrepreneur and former Dragon’s Den star Rachel Elnaugh is to speak at LadyFest, a 3 day female-oriented festival taking place across Preston in October, thanks to Remsol.

The acclaimed businesswoman and motivational speaker will give an inspirational talk to women as part of a calendar of events taking place during the weekend of 11-13 October which also includes music, comedy and workshops.

Elnaugh’s appearance at LadyFest has been organised and funded by Remsol.

Remsol managing director Lee Petts said: “As an organisation that is active in the local community and one that recognises the role of women in business, we wanted to make a contribution to the upcoming LadyFest.

“We know that Rachel Elnaugh is a fantastic speaker and has plenty of experience to draw on. She will be talking to women with a particular emphasis on inspiring them to become entrepreneurs and succeed in business.”

Lee added: “I meet many strong and capable females every day in my working life but I know that there are many more who don’t have the confidence or feel that they don’t have the opportunity to push themselves further. Hopefully Rachel, and LadyFest in general, will make a difference and motivate a great many women to do some great things.”

Organised by Millie Lavelle, the festival will focus on providing positive female art, music, sport and workshops including employability, creative writing and positive body image sessions. The festival will feature events for all ages and starts with a film event for families.

Speaking about her appearance at LadyFest, Rachel Elnaugh said: "This is a fantastic time for women to thrive through creating and growing their own business and I love events aimed at female entrepreneurs! The energy of optimism and co-creative collaboration is always awesome.

"At Ladyfest I'll be talking about my own learnings taking a company from nothing more than an idea into a market-leading £multi-million business, some of the key principles on how you can get into immediate flow of prosperity around money, as well as the current shift in consciousness meaning businesses run with 'feminine' values are now far more likely to succeed."

Rachel founded the gift experiences business Red Letter Days and was an investor in the first two series of the BBC's Dragon's Den.

Lee also sits on the Lancashire committee of the Institute of Directors, which has a strong role in promoting women in the boardroom. Funds raised by LadyFest will be donated to Preston Domestic Violence Services, a local grassroots organisation which provides a helpline, shelter and support for people suffering abuse.
