At the heart of our community is our monthly Women Rocking Business Meet Ups. Every month we meet at a pre-determined central Derby location to meet other awesome business women, network, make new friends, and just generally get out of the house! The WRB Meet Ups are not your typical networking event. They are completely informal and relaxed; no formalities, no awkward introductions (completely introvert friendly!). Don't expect formal introductions or to 'sell' your business to us. It is just a chance to mingle and relax. Once you have been a couple of times it will just be like meeting up with friends for a relaxed drink!
Details and tickets for each monthly meet up can be purchased over on Eventbrite - Click button below:
In addition to the monthly WRB Meet ups, I will also occasionally organise some impromptu smaller meet ups, such as park walks, coffee shop meet ups, trips to the cinema and other events, under #teamwomenrockingbusiness. These will all be announced via my Instagram page either in the posts or the stories: Women Rocking Business
Here's what some lovely members of the WRB Community have to say about our Meet Ups: "I love the relaxed nature of the WRB Meet Ups. Networking events I have been to previously are stuffy, boring and of little value but the WRB are so much more low-key and informal so you can chat, mingle and share without the pressure."
"Love the Meet Ups as they are casual no pressure gatherings. No forced introductions so if you are an introvert its so nice not to have to worry about big speeches infront of others. Love that it supports local business via venue choice."
"As a business owner for 18 years, I have never been into networking business events, but Jenny's Women Rocking Business Meet Ups are super chilled and I can say that many of the ladies I have met I am now working with and they have also become friends as well. Thoroughly recommend. It's becoming a little community! Jenny also picks fabulous venues to hold them, which is always a bonus! Thanks Jen xx"
How can you get further involved with the Women Rocking Business community? We have a number of ways in which you can get involved; both in person at the WRB Meet ups, and online via the use of the #TEAMWOMENROCKINGBUSINESS hashtag.
The WRB hashtag is designed to be used by those of us who believe wholeheartedly in the WRB values, and want to show their audience and other fellow businesswomen that we are a Women Rocking Business community member, believing in support and inclusivity! It shows that we are someone that believes in a supportive community over competition, and that people can trust you to be someone that shares the WRB values. It means that women can search the hashtag and find you and your business. Use the hashtag to discuss upcoming events such as the WRB Meet Ups, or use it when you are talking about what it's like to be a women running her own business, and so on!
Top Tip: Did you know that you can follow a hashtag, in just the same way as you follow an account on Instagram? Just search the hashtag, then at the top click Follow! Popular posts that have used this hashtag will now appear in your IG feed!
Members of #TEAMWOMENROCKINGBUSINESS can then also potentially use the Women Rocking Business name to organise free community events, workshops, or other free services or offers, if they would like to! (These would need to just get the go ahead from Jenny first, so that she can check that they are in line with the WRB values).
This is designed to further promote the idea of community, sharing knowledge and expertise, and giving back to others where we can. I hope it works, and you use it with the spirit it is intended! <3
