Price divas in with business website for women

Fiona Price is returning to the market with the launch of Diva-Biz, a mentoring and leadership forum for professional women.

The website, which opens for business on September 5, will feature interviews with female business leaders, academics and authors who have written about women’s enterprise and answer “all those questions you have wondered about but daren’t ask”.

Price says it offers women a monthly “business fix” at their desks and will provide networking opportunities and peer-to-peer support.

She says: “The ultimate relationship is the one that you have with yourself and business is a superb vehicle to explore this emotional, psychological and spiritual dynamic.”

She set up Fiona Price and Partners in 1988, which she says was the first female-advice-0focused firm. It was sold to Destini in 2004 and she later became director of communications for the combined Thinc Destini group and founded the Women’s Financial Adviser Group.

Price left the industry in late 2005 to concentrate on media and business consultancy interests. She says: “With their ability to listen, consensus style of management, sensitivity to the bigger picture and increasing numbers, women’s influence in business is growing.”
