Meetings & Events

Stroud Businesswomen’s Network meets twice a month.

Please note that our main meetings are currently 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.
