"I gain so many useful tips from other professionals at these events, so much encouragement too - I feel I'm part of a real community"

View all

Bristol is our longest running Network Hub and our events continue to see a wide range of women coming together for a boost of inspiration, practical help and real connection. That range includes all levels of the career ladder to running their own businesses/consultancies, and also sector, with women from pretty much every perspective of ‘sustainability’ that you might expect from a Hub based in Bristol.

Leave any doubts you may have about networking behind when you step through the door here – we’re a friendly community who value getting to know the ‘real’ you.

Expect to leave with a smile on your face, new friendships in the making and tangible shifts in your effectiveness as a change maker.

  • 22nd January, 8.15 – 11 am
  • 30th April, 8.15 – 11 am
  • 11th July,  5.30 – 8.30 pm
  • 17th October, 8.15 – 11 am
