When I first heard of Business Woman’s Network I was sceptical, my personal experiences of women in the work place hadn’t been great, pettiness, aggression, bitchiness and moods seemed to be the order of the day, behaviour that was seen in the early episodes of the current series of ‘The Apprentice’. There is of course an alternative view, that women are fluffy, just playing at business … again, a negative stereotype.
I’m pleased to report that through Business Woman’s Network I’ve been proven wrong, instead of the negative experiences of the past, for which women at work are famed; through Mandie Holgate’s positive leadership, there is a pragmatic but supportive environment with training geared towards the knowledge and skills needed to run a business.
Business Woman’s Network is something of which I feel proud to be a member, where we all support each other as we face the challenges of developing our businesses. Think ‘Calendar Girls’ for business rather than ‘The Only Way is Essex’ and you’d be about right!
Thanks for sharing that with us Kathy, although I am not sure I would take my clothes off! Okay you never know what you will do in the future if it seems the right decision do you? I am personally looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday at our big Christmas Event – it will be a great mix of fun and business with a good dollop of gorgeous shopping and plenty of laughs, since it is a Christmas event. So see you there – http://bwnchristmasevent2010.eventbrite.com/
