When a woman is empowered, women are empowered. Each new achievement reinforces us all.

Business Club

We are stronger together

Networking is one of the most effective ways to grow a business, especially if your business is new and not well known. It can help you to find new clients, suppliers and services and to forge new relationships that strengthen your company and build that essential ‘word of mouth’ about your business.

“WHEN A WOMAN IS EMPOWERED, WOMEN ARE EMPOWERED”

The Women’s Organisation would like to invite you to join our Business Club. Here, we know the importance of networking and we are dedicated to creating and maintaining a leading Business Club for women.

At the core of our Business Club are three key values; Connecting, Sharing and Supporting.

Business Club, exclusively for women business owners (and their team), is here to help you make those key business connections and contacts through regular networking. We are also passionate about giving you an opportunity to share your experiences and provide mutual support to each other in a safe and welcoming environment.

As well as providing this platform and support network, we are always working towards creating innovative and exciting networking events, with keynote speakers and facilitation so you can really achieve your best, when networking.

 

What are the benefits of joining the Business Club?

-       Exclusive access to the Business Club private LinkedIn group where you can do business and build relationships with other club members. This will enable you to network outside of the events with likeminded women in business.

(Not got LinkedIn? Then don’t worry, we can help with that too via our courses and tips)

-       We hold regular networking events and as a member you will have priority booking and reduced rates when booking. Each of the events will feature guest speakers and facilitated networking to help you build your contacts and confidence.  There will also be some opportunities to be a ‘Featured Business’ at these events for members only.

-       As a Business Club member you can offer other club members exclusive discounts and offers to give your business that competitive edge. We will even promote it for you within the club networking channels.

-       Occasionally there are PR and Case Study opportunities that come up. Whether it is TV or print publications that call out for it, or our own stock of success stories that we shout about. As a Business Club member, we will ensure that we come to you to offer these opportunities in the first instance.  

Who can join?

Membership is open to female business owners only and is per individual not per business. Additional staff members can be booked onto individual events as you go. Our events will mostly be held at our flagship building, 54 St James Street in Liverpool but members are welcome to join from anywhere. Our aim is to become the leading women’s networking club in the North West of England. 

How much does it cost?

We don’t have a membership fee as such. All we ask is that you make a donation to The Women’s Organisation charity. We are constantly seeking financial support through fundraising and donations to pay for our essential work and so your donation will be gratefully received.  It will help towards the cost of running Business Club and help us continue to deliver our support for women in business. In return, we will give you a great membership with lots of benefits.

The minimum donation for a yearly membership is £25 but we welcome larger donations, just specify the amount when completing your membership form.

How do I join?

To join, download the membership form HERE and return to businessclub@thewo.org.uk Once this step is completed, we can take your donation via PayPal Invoice, BACS, Cheque or Cash and you are a member.      

Your membership donation is for 12 months and we will contact you when it is due for renewal.

Once you have joined we will invite you to join the closed LinkedIn group where you can immediately start networking with the other club members. You will also then be able to take advantage of reduced booking rates for our upcoming events and other benefits.

Can I still access networking benefits and events if I am not a Business Club member?

Events yes. Benefits no. You can book on our events on a pay as you go basis and benefit from great networking opportunities each time you attend.

The additional benefits such as our LinkedIn group are for Business Club members only. As a member you will also receive a delegate list prior to our events to enable you to better target your networking on the day. 

How can my business become a sponsor of Business Club?

We have a range of sponsorship packages avaialble for Business Club to suit everyone, from one-off event sponsorship, to becoming our year-long headline sponsors. The success of Business Club is largely down to our generous sponsors, and we couldn't be without them. To find out more about Business Club sponsorship opportunties, you can download our Sponsorship Package document here, or get in touch with us on businessclub@thewo.org.uk
