As we approach the 5th annual Socially Shared Women in Business Conference, it feels like the perfect time to talk about the many benefits of being part of a thriving network. As a solopreneur, it can feel like you’re navigating the business world alone. Being an active part of a local network can be incredibly beneficial.
When we launched the Socially Shared Business Support Network, it was to unite local
business owners and share experiences. What began as a coffee and catch-up in a small
independent coffee shop in Kenilworth has now become a successful community for the West Midlands, Warwickshire, Staffordshire, and Leicestershire.
Part of that success is thanks to the like-minded women who attend our monthly networking
events, engage with other attendees, and push for special events that help them grow, learn,
and flourish. Special events like the Women in Business Conference.
Women in Business Conference
The theme of our 2023 Conference is ‘Mind Your Business’ which explores how your mindset can either be a help or a hindrance for your business or career.
Not only will attendees hear from expert speakers on the topic of mindset in your personal and professional lives, but you will also have plenty of opportunities to network with like- minded women who are going through similar experiences.

Networking is an essential part of your business marketing strategy, and attending the Women in Business Conference is a great way to expand your network and nourish relationships already made at local events or online.
You will have the opportunity to connect with other women who are in similar industries and can offer you support and advice. Many of our attendees have collaborated on fabulous projects after meeting at previous events. You may even meet potential clients.
At the heart of Socially Shared is a community of businesswomen, all of them passionate about their work, clients, and connections. Being a solopreneur can be lonely, but by attending the Women in Business Conference you will find a true sense of community.
You will be surrounded by ladies who offer support and encouragement and you might even make lifelong friends.
You are the face of your business, and while it’s admirable to focus on your professional development, your personal development and growth cannot be overlooked.

You will uncover a variety of ways to manage stress and improve your work-life balance.
