    Women in Business NI is a growing support network for women in Northern Ireland of all ages, that also delivers personal and professional development programmes.

    This month it celebrated its 3,000th member and has come a long way from the 80 members it started with in 2002.

    Sync NI caught up with the network’s Programmes Manager, Nicky Scott, who explained their new ‘Centre of Learning’. 

    Through this initiative, the team has developed several programmes that Nicky says are designed specifically to provide women with the opportunity to advance their leadership, communication and negotiation skills.

    Nicky also warned that spaces are filling up fast, but for more information on how to get involved click here or e-mail her directly at nicky@womeninbusinessni.com.

    Earlier this year, Women in Business also launched a three-year female enterprise business start-up and growth programme titled ‘Yes You Can’ in collaboration with the 11 local Councils and Invest NI. This was showcased at the recent second Belfast Social Media Bootcamp, which Women in Business NI sponsored.

    March 2019 also saw the second 'Women in Tech NI' conference hosted by Women in Business, which the team hopes to facilitate again in 2020. The one-day event gathered both female and male role models who innovate, challenge and embrace technology.

    The network’s Chief Executive Roseann Kelly said that Women in Business has something for everyone, “from monthly facilitated networking events to inspiring conferences and the annual awards, which celebrate the fantastic accomplishments of local businesswomen.”

    She continued: “We offer a wide range of events that attract over 250 women each month, where they can make invaluable connections and develop relationships, helping them to develop both personally and professionally.”
