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.
Edinburgh can get a bit crazy over the summer so First Fridays and events take a summer break. However there's no break for our hard-working president Kate Bell.
Kate took an early start on 3rd of August to travel to Dundee to attend the Association of Scottish Business Women ASB EGM at Dundee & Angus Chamber of Commerce. Being part of EBC means that all our members automatically come under the umbrella of ASB too - bonus! This means that we have a great network of business women across Scotland with whom we can communicate.
Here's Kate enjoying the sun which came out for this fabulous pic with Oor Rabbie Wullie! She had a great day getting motivated to bring us more ideas for taking EBC forward.....watch this space!

July saw our members' lunch at the enchanting Crowne Plaza Terrace Restaurant, on Royal Terrace. June Walker from the Scottish Chambers of Commerce joined us to share the fantastic mentoring opportunities offered by the "Future Female Business Leaders" programme.
A lot of engaging business conversations along with a delightful meal!
We had a great 3 course meal, coffee and exchange of ideas and business challenges around the table.
June gave us some valuable insights into the mentoring programme of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce and as well as helping to find a mentor a few of our members even offered to be a mentor....we're all about the exchange of values here at EBC.
June also helped us come to the conclusion that we are all mentors and mentees without even realising sometimes! And that is very much in line with the ethos of EBC...to get inspired, get involved and get connected.
We also received some lovely goody bags from Crowne Plaza and had a tour of their fabulous hotel....did you you know you can see the Firth of Forth from their windows?!
Let us know if you'd like to become a member and join us for more fantastic events!
