The Women in Business Network is a membership organisation for women who wish to gain new business opportunities through word of mouth. Members support and encourage each other through collaboration and the sharing of business contacts and opportunities.
Catalyst supported the Women in Business Network through team member Sylvia, who became Deputy Chair.
As deputy chair of The Women in Business Network, Sylvia was engaged to assist in the coordination of Women in Business meetings in Brighton and increase engagement between its members. The South East network has expanded to Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells and her role has developed into creating content, liaising with members and engaging with new members on social media platforms for all groups within the franchise.
Her role included the responsibilities of organising group meet-ups and helping with administrative tasks. She has successfully worked towards expanding group membership. She also chairs events and her involvement in the Network has allowed the organisers to focus on other elements of the business, in particular the task of growing the network.
