Supporting Business Women in Somerset

Somerset Ladies in Business is a relaxed, informal, networking group for professional employed, self-employed and small business owning women.

Networking is an important activity to help promote small local businesses, develop contacts, friendships and promote personal and business growth.

SLiB meets twice a month, at Jordan's Courtyard, Ilminster and at Taunton and Pickeridge Golf Course, Corfe, Taunton. You are welcome to attend either or both meetings, whichever suits your schedule. Please check out our Events page for further details on meetings.

Each meeting has the following format:
  • Informal yet valuable networking.
  • Introduction round where attendees can introduce their businesses and services to the room.
  • Business sounding board where anyone with a business challenge can ask the room for advice.
  • Different keynote speakers who gives presentations on a relevant topical business matters
We don't tie people into expensive memberships, we know it isn't always possible to attend every meeting so you just pay for each meeting you attend, currently this is just £17 (+£1.72 Eventbrite booking fee) if booked in advance, or £20 on the door, this includes tea/coffee and cake, so is amazing value!

We firmly believe that successful business is built on referrals and recommendations. These come from getting to know people in a personal and business setting and being able to recommend those organisations with trust and honesty to their friends and families and contacts.
