On the first Monday of the month saw the launch of Llanelli’s first women’s networking group. The dynamic networking group hosted by Rebecca Rosenthal of Rivki Rose Training and Michelle Beer of Ferry Cake Consultancy was set up to support women in business and the workplace. The network aims to provide a relaxed, friendly and supportive networking environment to support, educate and inspire women in business.
Women in Networking Llanelli, first meeting July 2016
Michelle Beer said “I often attend women networking events in both Carmarthen and Swansea, as well as others and the connection and support received has been invaluable, however, I thought Llanelli was missing out.”
“Both Becca and I are from Llanelli and thought it was good idea to see a women networking group in our own home town. So we decided to get together and start one of our own where it would support other women in business and in the workplace and be able to learn from each other and also be inspired.”
Women who are self-employed, director of companies or work in business where networking would be beneficial joined together for a relaxed and informal networking breakfast at Machynys Golf club.
Becca Rosenthal said “The first session went really well. It was great to see so many women in business coming together to share ideas, offer support to each other and expand their customer base.”
“Both Michelle and myself run our own business and we’ve noticed that the business sector is still very male dominated. We’re hoping that with the right support, a great line up of speakers and the opportunity to share learning, women who have linked to the network will have the opportunity to reach even further. We were also absolutely thrilled that Nia Griffith, Member of Parliament could join us at the event too.”
The networking breakfast takes places on the first Monday of each month and is free to attend. The next event is held on Monday 3rd August. For more information and to book a ticket for the Women In Networking Llanelli morning visit http://winllanelli.eventbrite.co.uk
