After a year of Zoom meetings and social distancing it is now time to start mingling and growing our networks again. WOB Members are invited to meet and network at this special social WOBMeet event. An evening for all aspiring leaders and directors to meet, share, network and learn.

More about this event

WOBMeet is held for our members to meet or reconnect, share knowledge & information and practice their all important 'elevator pitch' ……over a friendly drink. The atmosphere will be informal, relaxed and supportive.
 
Now we know that women are busy and it’s hard to find time, so we’ve developed a swift yet relaxed format that will start and finish on time and provide opportunities to meet other women in the WOB network.

All we ask is that you come with an open mind, preparedness to mingle and a touch of dazzle!
