National Women’s Network – Testimonials
Please see below a selection of testimonials from some of our NETWORK members:
"NWN North West and the support and advice I have received from members whilst setting up the new business has been really important. I tried one or two other networking groups but didn’t like the hard sales approach, and “pass your e-mail to everyone” reality of some of these. The Committee members in particular have helped me through some tricky moments with their expert advice, and I have also enjoyed our events and meetings and the ability to socialise and share with like minded women."
"NWN allows you to network, not with 100 people in a room but with a smaller number that you can get to know. And the "know, like and trust" then opens doors for business opportunities.
The support you get from other women is invaluable. We don't just hand out business cards and move on, we ask ourselves how can we help each other."
Sue Weighell, NWN Joint Chair
"Value of membership can be measured in monetary terms. This happens very naturally as our members forge authentic alliances and take advantage of offers and discounts.
What has been more important to NWN for over 30 years is the value that our members place on themselves. The value of that is priceless."
Janice Ross, NWN Joint Chair
"NWN is quite simply the driving force behind me. The members inspire me, support me and make each day easier, no matter where they are in the UK. Thank you!"

"At Network National I am surrounded by energetic, successful women. One of the best elements of the National Women’s Network is that it is so collaborative and supportive, unlike many network events there is none of the hard edged elements of competition. In fact, the more people I meet, the more I realise there are people here I want to work with. I am looking forward to developing some of those relationships into successful collaborative projects.”"
Lesley Renwick, Education and Management Consultant, ELLA Consultancy Ltd
"It is vital that a networking group like Network continues to be committed to supporting and driving both professional and personal life goals of working women. I applaud your efforts and wish you every success..."
The Rt Hon Patricia Hewitt MP
"I joined Network for the sheer enjoyment of socialising with like-minded women, rather than any business aspirations. However, one night I gave a fellow member a lift home and our conversation led to a commission which has subsequently converted to many thousands of pounds worth of business over the last eight years."
Judi Goodwin, Journalist and Trainer
"As I run my own business alone, joining Network North West has given me the chance to meet other inspirational and professional women in a relaxed way. The group has given me friendship, fantastic support and opportunities to develop my business further … thank you NNW!"
Anne Moore, Voice Coach, Vocal Excellence
"At Network North West, I have discovered a truly unique group of women. Experts in their fields and multi-talented in other areas, they are inspirational whilst remaining down-to-earth, friendly and approachable. In addition to networking with interesting women, meetings are inspirational, challenging, informative and, above all – great fun!"
Dr Dawn Edge, Research Fellow, Faculty of Medical & Human Sciences, University of Manchester
"Network North West gives me the opportunity to meet successful professional and business women from a wide variety of backgrounds and disciplines in a very friendly setting. It’s refreshing to be reminded that there’s life beyond the law!"
