A fabulous, First Friday!!!
The first Friday of 2020 was well attended.
Lots of energy in The Chinese Room. We were in there rather than our usual spot of The Georgian Tea Rooms as there were still so may Christmas decorations up at The Dome!
But as you can see from the photos lots of connections made and plenty of planning ahead for this new decade!
To all our members, please feel free to bring a guest with you to any of our First Fridays.
See you next month!
Remember you don't have to be a member to attend up to 2 First Fridays; come along and see what we're all about - just don't forget to book as numbers are limited and this is a very popular event.
What a wonderful Members Festive Lunch on 3rd December at the elegant Bonham Hotel!
Delightful food, warm atmosphere and lots of happy laughter.
Thanks to the Members who have generously contributed to our charity raffle with their gifts, the money from the tickets sale will go to Social Bite.

On the 5 November we had a fantastic Lunch and Learn Workshop with Steve Ponton, LinkedIn trainer, at the Institute of Directors on Charlotte Square.
Steve explained what we need to know about LinkedIn and how we can make it work for us! It was an extremely interactive session where we all worked on our profiles there and then.
Lots of tips!! Lovely lunch too.
Get those profiles done or updated now everyone!!

Breakfast - the most important meal of the day! And why not network over it too and bring even more value!
In September we had a fabulous breakfast networking event in association with Social Bite at their restaurant Vesta on Queensferry St, Edinburgh.
A huge thank you to Jane Bruce Deputy CEO of Social Bite for giving us some background into what they do for the homeless community.
It was an inspiring and thought provoking start to the day.
Thank you to all who attended! Hope you enjoyed your bacon rolls!
We were thrilled to be a finalist in the Best Affiliated Group of the Year Category at the Association of Scottish Business Women ASB National Business Awards 2019.
This is for the Members because you are what makes the Club!
Huge thanks to everyone for a wonderful evening and recognition of Scottish Women in Business! #UnstoppableWomen
The awards dinner was an amazing evening. So inspiring to see and hear the achievements of all the Women in Business. You are all wonderful and give us great encouragement in following our dreams. Thank you!
Onwards and upwards - we're going for the win next year!
Here's our President Kate Bell with our award certificate.
Our president Kate Bell had the pleasure (you can see it in her smile!) of meeting with Caitlin and Sarah at The Teapot Trust in September and presenting them with a donation from EBC. We were so happy to be able to make this donation to such a worthy cause.
This amazing Charity provides professional art therapy and creative interventions to chronically ill children in hospitals.
Thanks to our members we are able to support charities in and around Edinburgh.
Our First Friday after the summer break sold out quick! A full house at The Dome and it was great to get back into the swing of things.
September's First Friday was rich and diverse, so many different professions, backgrounds and personal stories, it was a real pleasure to welcome you all, members and newcomers! It is YOU, our members and guests, that make this event so fantastic. We can't thank you all enough for your contributions.
Thanks for joining us.
Remember, you can always come along to First Friday as a guest. Just book your place and we'll see you there.
