About this Event

‘BE’ is back and bigger than ever!

After a successful inaugural summit, maven46 is bringing ‘Be’ back with a bang in 2019. If you loved last year, then get ready to be amazed! Part-conference and part-experiential extravaganza, ‘Be’ 2019 features four stages, 10 rooms filled with exciting surprises, and 20 inspiring female speakers to motivate and learn from. Choose from our Fashion, Beauty, Life or Inspire stages with a full day of interactive talks, live panels, masterclasses, and experiential activity—led by top females in their industries.

‘Be’ 2019 is not your average conference; prepare for a summit with a difference, creating a space for women to thrive, love and learn. ‘Be’ aims to offer women a day to remember, filled with insights and strategies from the best in the business, with awe-inspiring female speakers telling all about the journey of becoming, and being, an entrepreneur; what tech innovations are driving retail and which companies are leading the pack; how to retrain your brain for positivity; how to handle stress; as well as the best beauty treatments and products we should all know about, not to mention fashion from top stylists and so much more.
