OxLEP Women in Business Gathering

OxLEP Business is pleased to be offering this Women in Business Gathering event. After the success of our last events we hope to continue bringing together Oxfordshire’s female business founders, leaders, and managers of SMEs.

The Women in Business network provides an environment in which you can be yourself and have meaningful discussions with fellow women in business within Oxfordshire, as well as share experiences.

• A place in which you can build trusted relationships with like-minded women

• An opportunity to increase your business knowledge

• An opportunity to take part in discussion topics

• An opportunity to raise awareness of your business and personal brand

Our Women in Business Gatherings provides the opportunity for us to celebrate our amazing local female talent, wonderful business relationships forged to date, and the evident appetite for female empowerment across the region. OxLEP’s existing and new female clients are invited to come together for a fantastic morning of networking and insightful conversation.

Although networking and making valuable connections is a priority, you also have the chance to speak to the OxLEP Business team about available support.

Who is this event for?

This in-person event is for female business founders, leaders, and managers of SMEs in and around the Oxfordshire area. This event provides the perfect opportunity to reconnect with peers, meet new women entrepreneurs, and listen to inspiring guest speakers, all in a lively and friendly environment.

N B: Whilst priority will be given to existing OxLEP clients; this event is also open to women business leaders that may not yet have sought support from OxLEP.
