Women in Business

Women in Business (WIB) is a professional women’s membership group set up to empower business women in the area and enable networking and promotion of their businesses.

The group, established in 1997, has seen its membership grow over the years. It was initially set up by the highly respected Diana Smillie and, under the new leadership of Fiona Spinks, Notary Public and Principal Associate at Nockolds, it continues to expand.

WIB meets four times a year at various venues in the local area for lunch. Most of the lunches have a speaker who shares their knowledge and experience of being in business, often providing advice and helpful tips for combining professional success with everyday life.  Over the years we have had the pleasure of listening to some fantastic speakers, such as Virginia Munro and Chris Barnado of ‘The Wand Company’ and Anni Ridsill-Smith of Airate.

There is a keen interest expressed in this group and as a result the number of members continues to increase. Fiona has plans for more motivational speakers and entrepreneurs from the area, making the meetings even more beneficial to local business women.
