Our Next Event
Not long to wait...
Following our first ever #BWi BIG Event at Cleeve House, in June 2018, we now celebrate all things #BWi… by holding BIG Events throughout the year.
Our winning formula is stunningly simple:
- Always hold our events somewhere fabulous
- Have free-flowing tea and coffee on tap
- Provide a delicious lunch
- Have the most talented and inspiring speakers
If that isn’t fantastic enough, there’s always plenty of time throughout the day to meet like-minded business women, network, establish business relationships, forge lasting friendships and, of course, have lots of fun!
‘’You can tell who the strong women are. They are the ones you see building one another up instead of tearing each other down’’
The Christmas BIG Event
We are super-excited to announce that our Christmas BIG Event will be on Tuesday December 10th at the (aptly named) Angel Hotel in Chippenham.
Following the success of previous BIG Events, we have arranged a similar day filled with quality guest speakers, a delicious lunch and plenty of opportunities to network
About the Day
With free WiFi, parking and tinsel thrown in, it promises to be another fantastic event and an opportunity to dig out that little festive number!
There are still one or two things to iron out but our #BWi BIG Event should look something like this:

‘What Do I Do Now?’ Business Planning without the Overwhelm.
How do you feel about your To Do List? Do you love the focus it brings or do you dread looking at it and fear you’ll never get to the bottom? Do you even have a To Do List? How many ideas do you have for your business? So many that you literally don’t know which to work on next? It’s easy to be so overwhelmed by all the ideas available that you never quite get going with the big ideas and all the little day-to-day tasks fill your time. They feel productive but may not be taking your business forward to achieve its real potential. Let me share with you a framework that will give you a plan covering everything you need to do – but without the overwhelm.

South West Cyber Police (in conjunction with Action Fraud)
“Protecting your organisation from Cyber Crime”
Offering nationally recognised guidance on how to protect your organisation, we will analyse case studies from investigations our unit have been involved in, and outline the steps which could have prevented those organisations from becoming victims. We will also discuss current and future threats, and explain how to defend against them. Our advice is delivered in an easy to understand format and suitable for all business owners.
Buffet Lunch and Business Networking
Time to enjoy a delicious lunch, grab a cuppa, do some networking and check out the event stalls.
The Social Spirit
“Facebook and Facebook Ads”
Do you want more exposure for your business but feel Facebook just isn’t working for you? Does it feels like an ever changing game that you don’t have time to learn how to play? Are you struggling to share your message in a way that gains engagement?
Victoria has been working with small businesses since 2016 helping them not only increase their social presence but also maximise their advertising, something every small business should know!

A Previous Event
25th September 2018
We think you’ll agree that Helen Hyde has done a fabulous job capturing a previous event on film.
Big thanks to Helen for creating this video for us, we love it! 💕
Lovely to meet so many great women, all pulling in the same direction and supporting each other. It was informative, well structured and organised with great speakers. Thank you team WWIB.
Although I was out of my comfort zone, I felt like I already knew the group and it didn’t take long at all to get merrily chatting away. Thank you to all I met for sharing your stories. I either met similar like-minded ladies or thoughtful & inspirational ones.
My brain is buzzing with loads of ideas about my business and how I can better get myself ‘out there’. I felt a real sense of community and mutual support. The speakers were fantastic and provided so much to think about. Great day!
