LBN is a friendly, supportive network; its members have plenty of experience in a wide range of professional fields and are happy to share their stories. We usually meet on the third Thursday of the month either in the morning from 10am to 12 noon or in the evening between 7pm and 9pm. We also regularly hold joint events with other like-minded organisations which offer even greater networking opportunities.
Membership of LBN is just £50 per year and member benefits include:
- A dedicated member profile page on the LBN website
- Free entry to each monthly event
- Networking and skills development workshops
- Discounted services from other LBN members
- A chance to promote your events and services in the e-newsletter
- Support and encouragement from other business professionals
- The opportunity to hear inspirational speakers
Guests are welcome at LBN meetings so feel free to come along to a couple of events before committing to membership; the charge is currently £5 per session including refreshments. Each event has a different theme and we work hard to offer a broad range of experiences to suit different needs. Members are often encouraged to talk about and promote their businesses, there are frequent skill-development sessions, and we regularly invite inspiring local businesswomen as guest speakers.
