A unique and entrepreneurial business network. An inspirational group of women with a good, fun attitude!

Unique networking.

We are a group of passionate and dynamic women, who are in business. Our members are friendly, welcoming and always ready to share ideas in a truly collaborative way.

Share ideas.

We run monthly get togethers for each group where members can catch-up with local stories, share best practice and hear inspiring talks from prominent local business people.

Local groups.

Business Women Connect is split into several groups, each focussed on a town or suburb. As a group we embrace the challenges that being in business inevitably brings and believe that together we can achieve more.

Have fun too.

Whilst the focus of each event is to share ideas and perhaps make new clients, it is all done in the context of a relaxed breakfast, or a cocktail-mixing evening.

Join many hubs

You can join as many of the hubs as you’d like. So if your work is taking you to another area, why not come along to another hub and make new connections. Just drop us an email for more information

Only £75 per year

You get all this, and more for a great value. Our members are pleased to be a part of such a great group and all recognise the great value of Business Women Connect.
