The networking organisation Network She celebrated its third birthday during September.
A number of networking events were held across the North West including a birthday party at the Crowne Plaza in Chester and a joint event as part of ‘Anglesey Business Week’

When I meet Ruth I knew that Network She was right for my business. I believe networking grows your business. Network She holds regular networking meetings, the prestigious annual Network She Awards and publishes a great magazine. In the Autumn/Winter 2010 issue Vona is on page 23 with the WINSENT programme and I am on page 21 as a ‘finalist’.
“When I went into business I had never experienced networking and when I did it was all happening at 7am and full of ‘suits and ties,” says Ruth. The group celebrates and supports business women and aspiring entrepreneurs.
The annual Network She Awards are open for nominations until 15th October with the prestigious awards ceremony taking place on 19th November at The Crowne Plaza Hotel, Chester. “We are celebrating business women who continue to succeed in difficult and unpredictable time, Network She is here to encourage, promote and support,” said Ruth.

Ruth is facing the challenge of expanding the group into the South of England and Yorkshire. The bi-annual magazine will soon have a northern and southern edition. “Network She is relevant to the UK as a whole, I am proud that we began in North Wales and we will soon become a UK wide group we have come a long way in three years,” says Ruth.
