Message from the WBII Board

Exciting changes for the WBII!

In May and June the WBII Board ran a consultation about our future direction. To those who participated, thank you! It was a grand success! The Board has listened to what you love and what you find less appealing and as a result we will be giving you what you want. Our networking meetings will continue, but they will be bigger and better with more of a chance for you to speak and get involved. Our August event will feature one of these changes with a new 10-minute highlight of one of our members.

We will also be revamping our image while keeping our recognised brand. Over the next few months we will be sharing this and so much more with you.

And we have a very exciting event lined up for September. No run-of-the-mill network event, but a collaboration with Rise & Lead to bring you the Rise & Lead Women Summit 2018! - see below for more details.

To keep abreast of changes, please like us on FB and follow us on LinkedIn.

And a short message from the WISE editor

There'll be no WISE in August as I too am going on holiday. In this newsletter I've included some September events so you can plan ahead. And if you have anything you want to share in the next WISE - coming out at the beginning of September - send me an email at 

Have a great break, enjoy your holiday, and come back rested and ready to hit the world with your business!

August WBII network event on 28 August


No monthly network event in July, but join us on 28 August when we will have a presentation by Heleniq Argyrou on U.P. Ultimate Peak Performance: How do we increase productivity and reach our ultimate peak performance? As business owners, we have hundreds of opportunities available to us for self-development through online and offline training, self-help books, mentoring and courses. How do you navigate these options and not wast time?

Heleniq will demonstrate a key to effective self-development to enable you to achieve a higher level of leadership, and discover your Genius type to work smart, not hard.

Find out more about this presentation and register to attend.
10-minute highlight

A new feature of the WBII network event is a "10-minute highlight" during which one member gets to talk about themselves, their work, and upcoming projects in more detail. In August, Ebere Akadari will be joining us to tell us more about her successful business journey.  
If you would like to be highlighted in future meetings please contact

Did you miss our June networking event, on Leveraging Your Natural Talent for Your Business by Dovile Corrigan?
No worries - this month we have not one but two reviews of Dovile's presentation.
