Local Women In Business

Who are we?

Local women in business is a networking event’s organiser, for women who want to obtain new connections, clients and support networks through engaging and value added events across the UK each year.

 

About our events

Each event takes place once a year, at a key location within various towns. They consist of business stalls for attendees to rent for the evening event, a guest keynote speaker, providing valuable and helpful advice on a range of business topics. A lovely 3 course meal and live entertainment for later in the evening when everyone has had time to network, meet new people and make new connections and collaborations with other women in business from the local area.

 

Why network?

Networking is essential in helping create a group of people we can trust, respect and seek advice from. We create a friendly and enjoyable environment that women can build these business relationships and create long lasting friendships.

 

Why we are different?

Most networking events are held during the day and are either quite small in attendance or extremely large in attendance and are very structured towards purely business talk. These environments can sometimes be intimidating, particularly if you are just starting out.

 

We want to create a celebratory atmosphere for women in business to make new connections and gain valuable contacts. We want to discuss new ideas and ways business can be done better for our communities and at the same time, enjoy each other’s company with fine wine and dining with live music. We also want to provide a keynote speaker at each event, someone who has experience in their field and has a lot of valuable advice to give and where possible, a representative from your local council to talk about relevant updates for businesses in your area.
