About us

A serious and empowered women's business network, that really delivers business results!
 


Join Women Mean Biz and you’re joining an established network of businesswomen and entrepreneurs working in all sorts of businesses from start-ups to established companies and large corporations. The only qualification you need to join is the desire to be successful in your business.
 
Each group meets once a month for a two-hour session over lunch, and all meetings follow the carefully developed WMB format. You’ll be given the opportunity to swap and share ideas, gain new contacts, build alliances and partnerships and get the support you need to drive your business forward.

All members are automatically included in the WMB online business community and get their own profile page. And you’ll also get the chance to take part in expert-led training sessions and seminars, many of which are included in the membership fee.

Founded by successful businesswoman, Philippa Constable, Women Mean Biz is the result of years of experience and research into how women can get the best out of business networking. Having been a member of business development schemes and networking organisations herself, Philippa realised women needed more than what was on offer. She’s developed a format that’s proved successful for hundreds of women, whether in business for the first time or with years of experience.


Meet Philippa - Founder and Owner 

Having taken two start-ups from zero to success whilst also bringing up two children, Philippa understands the value women bring to business. Described as ‘a highly motivated visionary and ambassador for female commercial acumen’, she’s passionate about helping her members succeed and is always available as a mentor and source of support. Her hands-on style means she gets to know members individually and many have become firm friends.

Passionate about supporting and inspiring women to be successful in life and business, Philippa is available for speaking at conferences, events, and business shows on a range of topics around female entrepreneurship, the power of networking, and starting a new business.
