As a networking organisation focusing particularly on women’s issues, Fife Women in Business has been established since 1991. Fife Women in Business (FWB) is Fife’s only women’s networking group, and we connect inspirational female business owners and professionals from all industry sectors. Fife Women in Business will help you make new connections and contacts as well as help you grow your business through sharing skills, giving advice and talking with like-minded businesswomen.

Want to know more? Come and meet our fantastic range of members at the networking and training events we organise throughout the year. FWB run popular networking breakfasts, which were introduced as a result of member feedback. During the year, we also run several evening events – including training to help enhance the skills of women in business.


  • To provide a forum for discussion and development, which is apolitical and non-denominational
  • To enable businesswomen to share and increase knowledge, skills and experience
  • To promote a business network among women
  • To encourage members’ career advancement
  • To exert influence in a professional manner in business circles and, thereby, to promote the advancement of women in business

FWB is also affiliated to the national Association of Scottish Businesswomen (ASB).  The ASB provides all FWB members with the unique opportunity to showcase themselves and their businesses throughout Scotland and beyond.



President – Caroline Trotter

“I have been so pleased to see the introduction and success of our breakfast meetings and look forward to a year of events which offer opportunities for women to network and train so that they can be more effective and productive in what they do, as well as enhance their business skills.

Vice President – Jane Banks

”I work from home alone, and for me, this group is more than a networking group. It’s where like minded ladies can make business friends. We share our successes and challenges in a friendly, supportive environment, and new people are always made to feel welcome.”

Treasurer – Catherine Lepreux

“Being self-employed can feel quite daunting sometimes.  Our monthly breakfast meetings are a great reminder that you’re not alone in business as everyone is always so supportive of each other.”


FWB is affiliated with ASB, The Association of Scottish Businesswomen. Part of each member’s subscription to FWB goes towards ASB membership.
