Our Women in Business (WIB) group is a professional women’s membership group set up to empower local businesswomen.

The group was set established in 1997 by Diana Smillie, with the aim of enabling women to network and promote their business. 

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. 

We have had the pleasure of listening to some fantastic speakers including Anni Ridsill-Smith of Airate and Julie Southern, the former Chief Commercial Officer of Virgin Atlantic Airways.

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