The Lake Macquarie Women in Business Network has become known for its relaxed and friendly environment through which business women can discover new connections, be inspired and grow their business. Now in its third year, the Network will continue to provide this valued opportunity to all women within the Lake Macquarie, Newcastle and Hunter Region.
As the coordinator of the Lake Macquarie Women in Business Network events, I believe that it is the personal stories that give this network heart. When you attend a networking or speaking event, more often than not, the speaker merely imparts some business knowledge or expertise. The personal stories that are shared at the Lake Macquarie Women in Business Network events are rare gems that provide a wonderful insight into the ups and downs of both the business world and life as a working woman. The women who attend each event take away valuable lessons from these stories.
The Lake Macquarie Women in Business Network was conceived by the Business Growth Centre in 2014 to provide women of Lake Macquarie with a comfortable and supportive network to develop and grow both personally and professionally.
Since the launch in February 2014 many amazing stories have been shared from inspiring women that are based right here including Heidi-Alexandra Pollard of UQ Power, Belinda Bow of Green Chilli Marketing, Melissa Histon of The Sista Code, Rachael Sheldrick of GS Mechanical, Shivani Gupta of Passion People Institute, Grace McLean of NFP Connect, and so many more.
In 2016 more amazing stories will be shared with the first from Sally Coddington of Curb-Cut Effect who will talk about the power of passion and purpose and what it took for her to take something close to her heart and turn it into a meaningful business. The first event for the year will be held at the Business Growth Centre on Wednesday 24 February from 10am.
We all know that networking can be an important marketing tactic for businesses and in the right forum women, in particular, can make meaningful and reciprocal connections. We are pleased to be able to offer a networking event at the Business Growth Centre that not only provides the women who attend with inspiration and insight, but also encourages them to make strong connections and support one another. This particular event is also a good one for those new to networking as the women are offered networking tips and given an opportunity to introduce themselves and learn what does and doesn’t work when it comes to making connections.
