Women in Business Network FAQs:

What is the Women in Business Network?

The WIBN is a network of businesswomen throughout the UK consisting of local groups. The Women in Business Network currently boasts more than 2,000 members in England, Ireland, and Wales.

How do I join the Women in Business Network?

First you visit a local group. Find a Women in Business Network group near you by using the WIBN website's group finder page. You can get an overview of the group near you and find out what professions are represented (groups are limited to one member per profession, so there's no overlap or competition for referrals), then contact them and schedule a visit.

Group visits cost £28.00. Once you've visited a group you can apply for WIBN membership.

What benefits do I get with my WIBN membership?

Besides the benefits of being part of a group, learning about other businesswomen and their businesses and getting and giving referrals, there are a number of discounts for Women in Business Network members:

  • Exclusive privileges from ELEMIS, the UK's number one skincare and spa brand.
  • Discounts on Saffire Handmade Artisan Chocolates.
  • Discount from Working Wardrobe.
  • A free 6-month subscription to WebGo Digital Business Cards.
  • Discounted membership to the Institute of Directors (IoD).
  • Discounted international exchange rates at Audensa Financial.

Will I get leads right away when I join WIBN?

When you join a Women in Business Network group you may get a few referrals right away, but the focus of WIBN is networking as a long term strategy. As you get to know and trust other group members through group networking and one on one meetings, you'll develop a greater understanding of who they are as both businesswomen and people. Through that relationship building process you'll know that when you refer someone to another WIBN member, they're in good hands.
