Here at The Women’s Organisation, championing women in business is at the heart of what we do. Last week, we hosted the WO Summer Social at our conference building 54 St James Street. Local businesswomen came along to network and celebrate their achievements as entrepreneurs.
Don’t worry if you missed it. We’re recapping everything that happened, right here, right now!
Upon entering, guests were given a name tag with a number on from 1-7. Those who had the same numbers were sectioned off into groups. As an icebreaker, guests then had to share two facts about themselves that people would be shocked to know. This helped people mingle and meet new people.
To mark the occasion, we put together special meat and cheese board spread and other sweet treats. And of course, we had to pop open the prosecco!
We asked people to bring along their business cards and flyers. They were all placed on one communal notice board which now takes pride of place in our reception area at 54 St James Street.
Some of our guests included clients who have set up their own business with the help of The Women’s Organisation. Naomi, who founded her own bookshop Still Out Of Print on Smithdown Road came, along with Pauline Cummins, who is currently in the process of starting her business Sacred Spaces, focusing on organising walks for the elderly.
The WO Summer Social had a lively and supportive atmosphere, where women from all walks of life came together to celebrate themselves and their acheivments. We can’t wait to do it all again next summer!
