I attended a BWIB meeting at the recommendation of a friend. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy the topic area that was covered, I also made some valuable connections. The women in attendance were extremely welcoming and eager to share about their businesses and learn about my business. The organizers allowed adequate time for all the attendees to connect and share about their businesses which is hugely beneficial when attending these types of events. I made two key connections at the first meeting I attended. I connected one of the attendees with some of my key contacts that ended up sending several attendees to an upcoming workshop she was planning. Also, one of the women I met connected me with one of her clients that needed printed marketing materials and this client has become a regular customer to my printing business. Thanks BWIB for fostering a welcoming and sharing environment!

“I came to my first BWIB meeting to scope out whether it is a good networking group. I have attended networking functions all over the Triangle for years and realized finding the right chemistry is all-important. BWIB exceeded my expectation. The open, warm vibe of the meeting put me at ease. Based on my elevator pitch, I exchanged business cards with two career women who value my personal styling services. Now we’re working on a project that will help student excel in school and beyond. This is a great payoff the students, my new business partners and me.”
