Jacqui Oatley will chair the discussion.

For the very first time WiF will also be running an exclusive duo of afternoon workshops, led by a high profile panel of experts. Tackling the issue of Motherhood in Football will be Kate Hardcastle (Chief Executive of Bradford Bulls and Tesco Mum of the Year), Helen North (Maternity Coach), Janie Frampton (Former FA National Referees Manager), and Justine Roberts (Founder and CEO of Mumsnet), while Margaret Byrne and Sam Gordon (Norwich City Financial Director) will be on hand to help steer you through a hands-on session of trouble-shooting for our Business in Football workshop, designed by WiF partners UCFB (University College of Football Business).
