This year LiB will be fundraising for Home-Start Telford and Wrekin


Welcome to Ladies in Business 2017

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.  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.

Meetings take place away from the workplace, giving you the chance to meet like minded women in professional positions, giving you the opportunity to make friends and feel less isolated in your work.

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 £16.50.  

We have two great speakers lined up for 2017.  For our first lunch we welcome Pen Quiller author of 'Travels with Penguins' (see News for more details) and for our lunch in July we welcome back Margaret Thrower, Shropshire's famous gardener who has delighted us in the past with her flower arranging and amusing insights into her personal life and career - a true entertainer.

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 Home-Start Telford and Wrekin, who provide support to vulnerable families through their toughest times so they may give their children the best possible start in life.  For more information go to their website
