It was a cosy First Friday in September, which was understandable as still plenty of us on holidays and just settling back into normal life post COVID.
However the conversations were as valuable as ever, plenty of connections made and lots of business ideas shared.
First Fridays are open to members and non-members too so if you'd like to network with like-minded women then please just book on our events page.

In July we had our first ever Business Buddies Brainstorm - what a success!!!!!
A trial run but it worked!
Lots of ideas exchanged and everyone has gone away with pages full of notes and action plans.
Good connections were made and we are all going to stay in touch to keep an eye on progress - just cos we feel invested in each other now.
If you'd like to join - we'd love to have you along - bring your burning business question and in 10 minutes we'll give you an action plan, ideas you'd never have thought of on your own and get you motivated for the month ahead.
Thank you to those that attended for their patience with this first-ever event of this kind and brilliant feedback too!
You are all wee stars!
