Hourglass, launches an army of female Game Changers Creating a Ripple Effect of Positivity in Business Across the UK
December 7, 2018
[London, December 8th 2018] Hourglass, a community of inspirational women, sets out on a mission to create a ripple effect of positivity across the UK. On Saturday, December 8th, the women’s organisation is hosting its end of year Game Changers event at Fora Borough in London. The group gathers inspirational women in the community from across a wide variety of industries to discuss the key factors to success in business and life.
Together the group will review the struggles faced when breaking boundaries to pursue the life of one’s dreams, this includes the hurdles, challenges and difficulties. The group will explore the power of a strong and positive mindset, how this can be developed, and how this way of thinking leads a women to achieve anything and everything in business and life.
“This is not a feminist movement, this is about getting real about the fabric of life, understanding the way it works. Success is nothing without being happy along the way, it’s mostly about mindset. Success can’t only be measured through financial gain, and we know how important it is to enjoy the journey because it’s never-ending when you are an entrepreneur and executive. As women (as people) we have a responsibility to be free to become who we are meant to become, and the happier we are whilst doing it, the happier our businesses, employees, vendors, customers, children and families will be too. It creates a ripple effect.”
Hourglass is a new kind of organisaiton, focused on a positive mindset combined with hard-earned business advice, skills, and tools for success. We offer women involved a supportive platform for business development, and through this women will gain a larger market share in investment, venture capital, and across a variety of industries, including those lacking female presence. Hourglass want to see more female owned businesses succeed, and more female executives continue to thrive at the male dominated ‘tops’ in this world.
Many women meet at Hourglass with nothing more than a new idea, whether it be for an established business or just starting out. At Hourglass ladies are able to discuss and grow concepts, and prosper due to the open mindset and support offered to continue to develop this way of thinking. Hourglass, is about facing fears, breaking glass ceilings, and putting the women with the heart, soul and good intentions at the front line.
We believe that the more we aim to inspire our communities the better the world will be for all of us. Men and children included.
Does Hourglass work with other women’s organisations?
At Hourglass we don’t look at other organisations as a threat, we look at all women in business networks, clubs, groups as our partners, as we believe in collaboration. We have seen a lot of support from women’s groups across the UK and internationally. Currently we are discussing partnerships and activities to be announced in 2019.
Are men allowed at Hourglass events?
At the moment we do not have men at our events, but this is certainly a topic for discussion. We have been approached by numerous men’s organisations on a similar mission to inspire and asked to collaborate. In 2019 we can look forward to further announcements around co-ed events.
So what’s next for Hourglass?
Hourglass is currently developing general topical events for female founders, executives, and women of influence. We are hosting Women of Influence events in 2019, where we join together to discuss the best next steps for making the greatest positive impact in society. Partnerships to be announced early 2019. We are also looking at a structured mentorship programme concept which is in development.
Is Hourglass international or just in the UK?
Since 2010 Hourglass has only operated in the UK. Lyndsay King founded Hourlgass as a way to join smart, savvy, business-minded women to discuss ideas and ventures at private events hosted out of her home. The concept gained so much traction over the years that she has taken the initiative to the masses and in 2019 will host events internationally. To be announced in 2019.
