I attended my first WIBN meeting in 2009, I remember it like it was yesterday I was so nervous at the thought of having to stand up in front of a group of strangers and talk about my hypnotherapy business. However I was hooked on the power of networking from the moment I walked in the door. Fast forward five years, not only did I enjoy that first meeting so much I became a member straight away, eighteen months later I decided to become a franchisee, and today I now look after the largest patch in the capital, running nine of the London groups.

Being part of WIBN for me is all about the camaraderie and support from like-minded business women – it’s the conversations you have & the connections you make. My motto at the end of every meeting is quite simply, “If you’re not networking then you’re not working!”
