8 May 2019 – Don’t make me think! Slicker decision making and how it impacts on marketing success


Zoe (002)

Good decision-making will be the hot topic of conversation when Business Women’s Link Members and guests meet on May 8.

Epix Media Director Zoe Easey will be encouraging business owners and managers to think carefully about ways in which they can interact more successfully with their clients – strengthening the relationship from both sides.

“I’ll be talking about how humans make decisions and how decision-making processes can impact on how easily (or otherwise) their audience interacts with their brand, their products and services,” she said.

Zoe’s presentation will also focus on the importance of limiting the number of decisions a business presents to people.  It will include examples and case studies.

The creative, who founded Epix in 2010, was recently co-opted onto the Board of the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership for a year to steer the LEP’s digital strategy. Zoe is also Lincoln Business Club Chair and an independent governor at the University of Lincoln.

BWL’s meeting, which starts at 5.30pm, will also include time for questions, networking and refreshments. Attendance costs £5 for members and £10 for guests.

4 July 2019 – Summer Lunch with Carol Shakespeare-Eyley


Jessicas mum


BWL is thrilled to introduce Carol Shakespeare-Eyley as this year’s Summer Luncheon speaker. Carol’s story is sure to inspire and motivate everyone because it tells how a determined young woman fought alongside others to change history by working with the Movement of the Ordination of Women (MOW).

Carol’s fight to be heard, not only took the Secretary for the Worcester Diocese to Westminster Abbey, but also to her local radio station to spread the word and raise awareness of her and MOW’s drive to get equality for females within the clergy.

And, in 2014 her efforts and those of her peers were rewarded, with news of the first woman ordained a Bishop in the Church of England.  History was well and truly made, thanks to Carol and MOWs’ energetic and determined fight.

But, there’s more!  Carol’s life story doesn’t end there.  Whilst working in Dudley as a nursery nurse, she pursued her dream of becoming a teacher. Despite leaving school with few O-Levels, she eventually succeeded to become a respected and well-loved Headmistress, transforming a failing school into one of the country’s top Primary Schools.  She went on to become an OFSTED Inspector and was also Chair of Governors for several schools around Leicestershire.

Carol achieved all this whilst raising two daughters and battling illnesses which saw her frequently hospitalised. Her inspirational story highlights the power of sheer determination and standing up for what you believe in.

Incidentally, if you were wondering about Carol’s connection to Lincolnshire – she is mum to BWL’s very own Jessica Eyley!
