Stroud Businesswomen’s Network meets twice a month.

Please note that our main meeting for the remainder of 2021 is being held at Minchinhampton Golf Club New Courses near Hampton Fields GL6 9BE, for full directions click the link.

There are two styles of meeting, our informal Coffee Catch Up – open to all Members and Friends offering a chance to catch up over coffee (!) and our main Members’ Networking Meeting where we regularly welcome inspirational speakers.

Both meetings are held on Thursday mornings. Joining details and other information are emailed in advance.

Our speakers are from across Gloucestershire and represent a wide range of interests including from the worlds of business, entertainment or charities and community organisations.

We also offer business skills training from top trainers, heavily subsidised for Members. And, in ‘normal’ times, we organise social events, including a summer spectacular and Christmas lunch.

    • Minchinhampton Golf Club, New Courses, off Hampton Hill, Glos GL8 8SB

    Inspirational local Speaker Shalize Nicholas of Madia & Matilda

    Please note this is a face to face meeting and that the venue is Minchinhampton Golf Club, New Courses, off Hampton Hill GL8 8SB. 

    Hailed as a pioneer by her peers, Shalize graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University after having the opportunity to work with Mary Katrantzou in Paris, and went on to work as a Freelance Designer for several brands including Tesco's own F&F collection.

    With the launch of Madia & Matilda, based in John Street, in 2013, Shalize began curating her own designs for her own brand and ethically producing unique styles from upcycled and sustainable materials.

    Any waste produced by Shalize and her team whilst they're behind the sewing machines is repurposed down to the 'tiniest scrap', into items such as masks and dresses for instance.

    Madia & Matilda website can be found here.
