Women, Welfare, Wealth and Wellbeing are changing the Weather
Wherever you live in the world, the best four words starting with ‘W’ are Women, Welfare, Wealth, and Wellbeing. But if you live in England, the best four words which begin with ‘W’ are actually five: Women, Welfare, Wealth, Wellbeing and the fifth one is not ‘World’, but ‘Weather’! We are obsessed with the weather, and in all fairness, it rains most of the time! This year, we could definitely say that the British Summer started in style!
I want to take you on an adventure of the mind today and see how the best four words which start with ‘W’ can change even the Weather!
When The All Ladies League – Birmingham and West Midlands Women Economic Forum decided to launch the inaugural conference on 20 – 21 June, hundreds of Women traveled from four continents and brought the good weather with them!
Welcomed by the amazing local women and men who volunteered at Shree Birmingham Pragati Mandal Temple, the guests had the chance to share their stories, support each other and collaborate to bring about a better world for ALL.
ALL – The story of WEF
When discovering new places, new possibilities, it is always a good idea to ask the locals. We asked Dr Neslyn Watson – Druee what is the story behind WEF.
ALL Ladies League and Women Economic Forum (WEF) Founded by Dr Harbeen Arora; Dr Harbeen is the International Chair for the ALL Ladies League and Women Economic Forum.
ALL Ladies League (ALL) is about the spirit to love ALL, serve ALL with kindness, care, relentless positivity and constructive collaboration on selected projects. The Women Economic Forum is an associate of ALL Ladies League (ALL), the world’s largest All-inclusive international women’s chamber and a movement for the Welfare, Wealth, and Wellbeing of ALL.

We offer completely free membership to women worldwide who wish to make a difference; albeit it’s by reference and invitation.

Globally ALL aims to bring one million plus women into the league by 2019, ALL encourages you to join mission-million.
Women and Men were invited into the Forum by the Chair, Dr Neslyn Watson-Druée or Vice Chair and existing members to build up leadership, develop entrepreneurial skills, network and share extraordinary stories.
We asked The Chair of Birmingham and West Midlands WEF – Dr Neslyn Watson-Druée, CBE, FRCN, FCGI, who was recognised for her massive contribution to Great Britain’s progress, by Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II, not once, but three times, who are the Award winners at the WEF Birmingham, UK Conference 2018.
