Turn your passion into a business!

Turn your passion into a business! Take charge of your career in 2015!  Thursday 08th January

What better way of kicking off 2015 together than getting some Business Inspiration from two Anglophone women entrepreneurs!

On Thursday 08th January, you’ll meet our two guests Vanessa de Haas and Julia Barnes, who opened their yoga studio in Lyon, four years ago. They have kindly agreed to come and share their experience with us.

The session will be a round table where we’ll explore 3 main themes: turning your business idea into reality, turning your passion into a business, cultivating balance between work and the rest of your life.

There will be time for Questions & Answers and even time for a relaxing breathing exercise!

So don’t miss this opportunity to get inspired and revitalised for a great year ahead!
