Stroud Businesswomen’s Network returns to face-to-face meetings


One of the county’s longest-established business networking groups is moving off Zoom and into Minchinhampton Golf Club near Avening.

Beth Whittaker, Chair of Stroud Businesswomen’s Network, said: “Like  other networking groups, we moved to online meetings last year due to Covid, but now we are confident of getting ‘back to normal’ and we can’t wait to see everyone at our October Members’ Meeting at a new venue.”

SBN opened up its informal monthly coffee catch-up sessions at the Curio Lounge in Stroud a few months ago with social distancing in place, but the Network’s volunteer committee recently decided that the full Members’ meeting would also be face-to-face from this month.

The guest speaker at the meeting at Minchinhampton Golf Club on October 21 will be local potter Emma Hall from Silver Spot Ceramics who set up her business in March 2020 and already has almost 40,000 followers on Instagram! She will share her tips and tricks around her success in using social media.

Stroud Businesswomen’s Network is a not-for-profit group, run by a small team of volunteers. It helps Members to grow and develop their businesses in a supportive all-women environment – making great contacts and friends, learning from and supporting each other.

“If you’re new to the area, or launching your first business, you will soon feel at home with a chance to meet up to 35 other local businesswomen,” added Beth. “Inspirational guest speakers extend our knowledge, broaden our business understanding and often make us laugh!”

The move to the golf club is a temporary one, with SBN hoping to return to The Old Lodge next year.
