Calling all Small Business Owners .. BT dials up women’s networking #BTWomeninBiz
09 Oct 2014
October 9, 2014
Being a businesswoman is rewarding, for sure. But it’s also dam…ned hard work, which is something we know all about in BT! And if you are just getting started, the light at the end of the tunnel can seem very distant.
So we’ve come up with an idea to help, whether you are just starting out , or an established business looking to grow. BT Women in Business
Using our skills and experience, we want to help you get on top of your business problems. And if you haven’t got a specific problem today, maybe you’d like a business mentor to bounce ideas off and help guide your business to get started or become more successful.
Our idea is to building a community of women across the UK who network both online and more locally at events that are small in size but big on benefits. We want to use the sessions and this group, not just for networking, but as somewhere that we can all exchange ideas, experiences, and enthusiasms. They’ll be about nurturing growth, fostering development, and building mutual support for everyone taking part.
So whether you are part of a business, you run your own small business or are a young graduate or budding entrepreneur, if you want to get involved and contribute to this network, we would love you to be involved.
Our first regional event is scheduled for Thursday 9th October from 2 – 5pm, at Riverside Tower, Belfast. The agenda is focused around topics that the ladies who have already joined the group have requested – using Social media, Personal brand & networking etc. It will include breakout sessions where business women can talk to professionals in areas such as HR, Communications, Marketing, Legal etc. Please register to join the event on Facebook.
