"“The FF Trade Mission was transformational for my businesses. First and foremost were the connections made of which one was with Mariana Santos based on the work she is doing to empower girls and women. This sits well with my Coaching business and overall vision to empower others. We are currently in talks for me to be an ambassador Chicas Poderosas in Australia.
Attending the websummit in Lisbon was monumental as I start to develop my tech products and create a start up company, hearing the women at the Australian Ambassador evening was a much needed boost to consider doing business in Lisbon especially as I am still part of the European Union being a British Citizen.
Attending the Women In Tech event in Lisbon was mind shifting as it reminded me to be visible as a Woman of Colour in Engineering/Technology. I have aspirations to further my work in championing girls in STEM and Women in Tech in Africa as well as closer to home in Australia and London.” Yemi Penn

"International travel has been a game changer for our business. The opportunities, connections and new perspectives gained from visiting new shores have been instrumental in getting our business where it is today. Each experience has taught us new things, enabled us to come up with creative ideas and been a big part of the direction we have taken in our business. The benefits have been everything from identifying upcoming trends to getting greater clarity on our personal mission and closer to our dreams for our life. We've met incredible people and been awakened to a host of new ideas and opportunities for growth ." Peace Mitchell
