Business Women in Surrey

Business Women in Surrey

Surrey Chambers Business Women in Surrey (BWiS) is a local network of like-minded business people – male and female – sharing ideas, knowledge and skills via workshops, seminars and events.

Our annual flagship International Women’s Day (8 March) event is a particular highlight in the Surrey business calendar. Attracting inspiring guest speakers and delegates from across the county and beyond.

So, if you’re interested in Surrey business and Surrey businesswomen, please do get in touch. We’d love to hear from you!

 

Jarmila Yu – Chair

“I’m delighted to be invited to take on the role of Co-Chair of the Surrey Chambers Business Women in Surrey (BWiS) from the outgoing Chair, Claire Dee, who recently left the Surrey area.

I look forward to collaborating with Louise Punter, the Surrey Chambers team and steering committee to continue to provide new and exciting opportunities to support business growth, and inspire and celebrate women in business in the Surrey community.”

 

Tomorrow’s Women leaders

A generation of women are getting ready to take on leadership roles, yet the UK still needs another 1.5 million women in management roles by 2024.

The launch of our new Women Leaders’ Academy aims to tackle this challenge by giving women the opportunity to achieve a Chartered Management Institute Level 5 qualification.

We’ve secured government funding to cover 90% of the fees, which makes this professional and highly respected qualification affordable and accessible to more aspiring women leaders.

 

What the BWIS group have to say:

Jenni Riley – ITARMI

“Being part of the BWIS steering group is a way for me to not only share my own personal journey in business but I hope to inspire and potentially be able to help others by offering advice and support wherever I can. Its not easy starting a journey like this, sometimes daunting and lonely, but having the support around truly helps void some of those feelings and helps me grow in confidence all the time so its nice to have the opportunity to give back.”

Jarmila Yu – YUnique Marketing Ltd

“I’ve known about the Surrey Chambers Business Women in Surrey (BWiS) group having attended and spoken at its annual flagship event that supports International Women’s Day. But BWIS is so much more! I’m delighted to be a member of the BWIS committee lending my support to grow the network within the SCC community so that throughout the year we can continue to shares ideas, knowledge and skills between us. I’m proud to play a part in shaping BWIS events that support and inspire women in (and into) business in Surrey”
