Welcome to ‘Posts From WIBN & Our Members’.

WIBN – The Women in Business Network is a membership organisation for women who wish to gain new business opportunities through word of mouth. WIBN has an extensive network of local groups around the UK and in the Republic of Ireland. We offer business women a forum to network their business and meet likeminded individuals. WIBN Membership is open to both business owners and employed women.

This is a place to share and encourage WIBN members with business advice, tips, articles, useful blogs and information to support women in business. If you have won an award or want to share press coverage you have received, you can also share it here.
