Thank you to our delegates and exhibitors for sending in these messages to our Founder Melanie after our successful 2018 Be Inspired Conference.


This was our first exhibition and we couldn't have been more supported by Melanie and her team - from our first enquiry to packing down our exhibition we have felt guided every step of the way. Yorkshire Ladies Links will be by your side in whatever you do and will constantly keep you involved and updated; it feels as if we've been a part of this group for years when in fact it's only 3 months. It's a great feeling to be part of a group who are approachable, inspiring and proactive - thank you for making us feel so welcome.

It would have been so easy to stay in our warm cosy office this morning rather than venture out into snowy Armageddon (‪#Thirsk) but we are certainly glad we didn’t! Instead we met some amazing inspirational women (and men!) at ‪@LadiesLinks to celebrate ‪#InternationalWomenDay2018‪

@LadiesLinks @beinspired2018 Awesome day with amazing people - men and women.

It was our first conference exhibiting and we can’t wait to book again, we were kept busy all day, superb event, well done Mel and your team.

I just wanted to drop you an email across to say thank you for organising the event yesterday. I haven’t attended a Yorkshire Ladies Links event before however I will make sure I attend more.

What a great day of inspiration. Thank you Yorkshire Ladies Links, educational, informative and heartwarming.

Inspirational event - motivational speakers - exceptionally thought provoking. I feel honoured to have had the privilege of attending - Thank you
