Rachel Bedgood of CBS Named I AM WOMAN’s First Dragon Patron

Business, leadership and management coaching organisation I AM WOMAN has appointed Welsh screening entrepreneur as its first official ‘Dragon’ patron.

To celebrate the appointment, Rachel is joining forces with Cheryl, Creator and Founder of I AM WOMAN, to put on an inspiring event at the Mercure Holland House Hotel in Cardiff on November 26th where aspirational women entrepreneurs can attend for an evening of networking and business support.

The evening will kick-off with a cocktail and canape reception where attendees can chat and connect with like-minded entrepreneurs, followed by introductions and some speed networking.

Then it is time for the main event: the presentations. Louise Williams O’Halloran Chair & Founder of the Juno Moneta Group and Sammy Blindell of Brand Builders Club kicking things off, followed by our very own Rachel, and Cheryl rounding off the evening.

Following the event, I AM WOMAN will be holding regular pitching opportunity events held in Cardiff and Bridgend, where those who are successful receive training, advice, support, motivation and an introduction to funding to help them take the next step in business.

Following its Aspire programme, I AM WOMAN, with Rachel’s support, will help women recognise their potential and achieve an ILM certification across an eight-week programme of weekly training sessions.

Cheryl Bass, MD of I AM WOMAN, said:

“I first met Rachel over a decade ago when CBS was a new venture. Since then, she has become the driving force behind what has grown into a multi-million-pound company. That is why I wanted her to be I AM WOMAN’s first official ‘Dragon’ patron.”

Rachel Bedgood, Investor and CEO of CBS, said:

“I am extremely proud to be named as I AM WOMAN’s first dragon patron and look forward to helping young businesswomen make their dreams a reality.

“Often what women need is a trusted advisor to help them. I AM WOMAN provides start-up training, and with our help, these women will be able to recognise where their business currently is, where they’d like to go, and put a steadfast plan in place for achieving it.”
