WHAT WE DO
Sometimes beginning the working day with networking can get us all off to a good start. That’s why our breakfast meetings have been really popular. Over a tea or coffee and a bacon or egg roll, we meet at The Balbirnie in Markinch almost every month to network with like-minded women. Networking takes place around tables or standing, with the opportunity to move around the room and a chance to give a 60-second pitch about your business. Check out our events page for more details.
In these interesting times, we are having Zoom meetings that are really helping us to exchange our experiences, joys and frustrations of lockdown together. It’s not quite the same, but much better than nothing!
We have a few evening meals together during the year so that members and non-members have the chance to let their hair down and enjoy a night out and get to know one another better. We’ve also had trips to the Edinburgh Festival. Not everyone can make it to our breakfast meetings, so we like to mix things up.
We also have drop in coffee mornings in Dunfermline at The Crooked Glen and at St Andrews at The Golf Inn for ladies at each end of Fife. They’re very informal and ladies can drop in and out depending on the time they have available. We’re doing these by Zoom too which is working well, but we can’t wait to get back together again as soon as we’re allowed to!
Training plays an important role in helping women advance their personal development. The FWB committee aims to organise several training sessions across the year that are relevant to women in business. These usually take place in the evening over a meal, giving you an opportunity for some networking before the speaker is introduced. The committee is always open to suggestions, so if you are someone who could offer some training for Fife Womein in Business, or if you have an idea for some training that might be relevant to women in business, please get in touch.
Our Facebook page is kept as up to date as possible, with helpful hints and suggestions to support women in business. If you have any news that is relevant or interesting, please get in touch. ‘Like us’ today. Want to know more about what we are committed to do to help women in business? Read our constitution.
