Joining SWIBN is a way to build your contacts and interact with other women with connections to all sorts of businesses. As a group, we utilise our joint strengths to share knowledge and supports. We meet once a month, usually on the last Tuesday of each month.
SWIBN acknowledges the significant contribution of women in the North West in economic and social terms. The network is an opportunity to share the extensive body of knowledge, support and contacts of these women in an atmosphere of mutual support. Outside of monthly meetings, SWIBN has a communications network that members can access at any time through our Member Directory and social media channels.
We encourage women to attend network meetings as often as they can. You can’t beat face to face for initial contact for mutual support and exchange of professional experiences. In our experience, contacts made, or snippets of conversations had, can evolve into something further with the passage of time. This could be as simple as buying an item or service from another member, or getting advice informal advice from someone with more experience than you. That’s where the network kicks in once again, if you are a member you have access to all the other vetted members, all of whom have joined with an understanding of the mutual support nature of this network.
