Welcome to Ladies in Business 2016 - 10th Year Anniversary

Ladies in Business, Shropshire was set up in 2006 and was the brainchild of four professional women looking to create a relaxed group in which women could network and build mutually beneficial relationships with like-minded women.  We could never have foreseen 10 years ago that we would still be running it 10 years later.  Of the original team and sponsors who set LiB up, whilst two sponsors have changed, only one of the core ladies has changed and that was in year two.  What dedication, achievement and support.

Over the last ten years we have had some amazing speakers Margaret Thrower (Shropshire's famous gardener), John Cushnie (gardener and panellist on BBC Radio 4's Gardeners' Question Time), Hayley J (bridal wear designer) and Sue Riches (member of the first all women expedition to the North Pole) to name but a few. 

We have two great speakers lined up for 2016.  For our March meeting we welcome Neelam Meetcha, a renowned TV personality and wrapping guru to the stars and for our July meeting we welcome back Sybil Ruscoe who was our very first speaker at our inaugural meeting in March 2006.

All of our lunch meetings take place at Adcote School, Little Ness, Shrewsbury, SY4 2JY.   Everyone is made to feel very welcome and enjoy a two-course lunch and listen to an inspirational speaker.

Our lunches start at 12 midday and finish at 2.30 pm and the cost is £16.  

In addition to our lunches we also have two Netwalks.  Anyone who has been on our Netwalks before will you tell you they are an excellent way of getting to know people.  

Our walks begin at 9.30 am and include a two-course lunch with the day finishing at 2.30 pm.   The cost of this event is £25.

Each year we select a charity to fundraise for at our lunches and this year we have chosen the Shropshire Deaf Children's Society, who offer friendship and advice to children and young people with any level of hearing loss, and their families in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.  For more information go to their website .
