What’s the WBWN all about? There are many women who enjoy doing business with each other in Whangarei—be it to share a problem or a success, source another woman in business to provide products or services, create a strategic alliance or a new customer, or simply to refer them on to someone else who can help. And we all enjoy helping others to get what they want and resolve their problems –right? Whangarei has a wealth of successful women who own their own businesses, work in partnership, and support successful business owners and operators. The WBWN is an avenue for celebrating these successes and connecting with other like-minded women in business. The WBWN focuses on Whangarei-based business women as speakers who will share their successes, triumphs, challenges, and their hints and tips for success, so that we can each learn and grow from their local experience and knowledge. What happens at the WBWN? Each month an event is held that provides the opportunity for women in business to: Connect with other businesswomen in Whangarei Share your business cards and your successes Learn from a local, successful woman in business What makes the WBWN different from all the other networks? There are many highly successful business networks operating in Whangarei. Many of these require a joining fee plus an annual membership fee and some form of regular attendance. The WBWN is a ‘pay as you go’ option with no membership fees and no attendance requirements. Who can attend the WBWN?
