North East Networking Groups
There are so many North East Networking Groups
Business Networking is all about getting to know the people behind the other businesses in your local area. Meeting people you may be able to do business with. Finding suppliers. Making connections.
There are so many different groups, each with their own format and structure, that sometimes it can be overwhelming. Deciding which North East Networking group is right for you will make life so much easier.
Women’s Networking North East
Network North East is localised. Although we are part of the National Women’s Network, Network North East is our local divison.
We are run by and for women in business in the North East of England.
We know that the best type of networking isn’t just a 60 second pitch and then sitting quietly while we are sold at by other people.
Network North East Meetings
Our meetings are much more relaxed in nature. Of course there are introductions and often a speaker. But we have socialising too.
You will find that we provide a comfortable kind of accountability and support. This naturally comes from having a network of like minded, supportive and encouraging business women. This is something you’ll find is hard to establish elsewhere.
Our North East Networking Events
Our in person meetings are on hold for the time being – due to the pandemic.
So for now our monthly meet up for supper and a catch at venues like
- Ramside Hall
- The Ravensworth Arms
- The Angel View Inn
- Jury’s Inn
has had to be put on hold, but we continue to meet and support it each other on our Zoom meetings. We always share the links to these in our Facebook Group
In this particularly trying time the support of the other members and advice on how to keep going both personally and in business has been invaluable and for a time we met on a weekly basis.
From Shamanic Drumming to At-Your-Desk Self Massage advice and plenty of wellbeing support from our members who stepped up as guest speakers there has been no shortage of activity.
We all miss seeing each other and know once it is safe and appropriate to resume in person gatherings we will continue the momentum our Network has built up in the past 39 years!
We have socials too!
From Spa Days to Charity Nights Out to cocktail making – we love to business network and learn, but we love to party too!
North East Ladies Networking – est. 39 years ago
Its hard to believe that our network started 39 years ago and we are so hoping to have an amazing celebration in 2021 for our 40th anniversary.
As a non for profit organisation we are currently (and have been for the past 2 years) in a position whereby we don’t need to charge for membership.
It’s currently completely free to become a member of the National Women’s Network and a member of Network North East.
We normally ask for an annual fee which averages around £75 PA and in the future if our expenses increase we may return to a similar setup. But for now we have funds in the bank and no expenses as all of our meetings are being carried out on Zoom .
Please do sign up request to join our NWN Members group on Facebook and sign up so we can remind you of our upcoming meetings.
