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.

We meet twice a month, on the second Thursday of every month in Ilminster from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm and on the last Thursday of the month we meet in Taunton from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm. You are welcome to attend either or both meetings, whichever suites your schedule.

Each meeting has the following format:
  • Informal 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.
  • We then have a keynote speaker who gives a presentation on a relevant topical business matter.
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 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 with trust and honesty to their friends and families and contacts.

Upcoming Events

Our meetings are held on the last Thursday of the month, click through to our events page for more details and to book your place.

Members Directory

We have a diverse membership, we do not have a traditional "lock out" policy believing in colaboration rather than competition.

Members Showcase

Each month we introduce our ladies to the wider world by taking ‘SLiB on tour’ (with cake) and visit each wonderful business in turn.
