In a change to our previously advertised Franchising event, September will now see us hold one of the very popular Networking nights instead – bring yourself, your business cards, your flyers, your problems, your advice and share with other SWIBNers – see you on Tuesday September 27th at 7pm!!
Networking is what we’re all about at SWIBN – getting to know your colleagues, building relationships, learning from one another and sharing business opportunities.
We’re so good at it, we thought it was about time we invited our colleagues from Sligo and further afield along to our April event!
This month, we’re inviting networks from Sligo and around Connacht, to join us for a fun, dynamic evening of networking. Members are very welcome to invite colleagues so feel free to send details of the event onwards.
As always, April’s event will take place on the last Tuesday of the month – 28th April, from 7-9 p.m. at the GlassHouse Hotel, Sligo. RSVPs are required via Eventbrite so don’t forget to ensure you or your guest books their spot!
We look forward to seeing you on the night – don’t forget to bring lots of business cards!
Thanks to all our wonderful soap-boxers for their great presentations in March! We’re all agreed that the diverse businesses and offerings made for a really enjoyable evening.

Don’t forget to RSVP promptly ladies!
Back with a bang in 2014! Thanks to Sandra Hart for her super networking ‘nuggets’ …
January’s networking evening was a feast of fun and helpful tips on how to maximise your networking potential. I know many of us learned new tricks on how best to network, using our natural talents [us women are super networkers!], as well as those crucial tips on entering and exiting conversations! Not to mention the key: follow-up.
This is also my first post as co-facilitator, ladies! Delighted to be working with Oonagh on what is already a very dynamic and active network… hope I can bring some interesting ideas and suggestions for 2014.
Speaking of which – one of my tasks [thanks Oonagh! Well, in fairness, I volunteered… ] is our online presence – so website, social media etc. Like to let me know your thoughts? Email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to seeing you all on the 25th February for a thought-provoking talk from Dr. Patricia Fitzsimons.
