    The North West branch of the National Women’s Network meets monthly at the Manchester Airport Marriott Hotel. The group typically includes a speaker topic and combines this with a chance to network and to enjoy a buffet meal. The group offers both business opportunities and support to women in business.

    The network is a membership organisation that was formed in 1981. There are a number of patrons including Lynne Franks who has recently opened b.Hive in Manchester and Caroline Shaw, CEO of The Christie Hospital.

    Non-members are always welcome at meetings that start at 6.30 pm. Email northwest@national-womens-network.co.uk to be added to our mailing list.

    Attended the 4N meet which we thought was a good meeting. For me and from a completely practical sense, it’s difficult for me to get to as I live just over an hour away.

    I’ll be moving to Hale soon and can’t wait to attend regularly though.

    Really enjoying your blogs Alex, keep it up.
