If you’re a commercial business, networking organisation or public body, there are several ways we can work together for the benefit of your organisation, your staff and your customers or members
Group membership for companies or public sector organisations
Group membership is an excellent way to promote your organisation to the wider WIN community, and also for your staff to connect with and learn from other individual and group members.
You will have full use of the WIN website to promote your organisation’s news and events, and to post offers to other members. Key information can also be included in our monthly WIN ezine which goes out to an even greater audience. On an individual the staff you sign-up will receive training to develop their networking skills, free attendance to monthly events focusing on a range of current business issues, plus a range of exclusive member offers and discounts on a range of professional and personal products and services.
To qualify for group membership, you must sign up five or more employees to join WIN for a reduced membership fee of just £100+VAT per person per year. You can do this online now or please give us a call to discuss.
If you have a supergroup’ of 20 or more that would like to join, please contact us to discuss further opportunities and discounts.
WIN micronetworks - for existing networking groups
WIN micronetworks are an excellent and cost-free way to promote your group, increase your female membership, and deliver additional benefits to your existing members. You will retain your own identity and of course continue to run your own member activities; but you will also be included on our website and in our communications as a WIN micronetwork, meaning you and your members will have access to a host of additional opportunities and benefits.
In particular, you will have full use of the WIN website to promote your group’s news and events, and to post offers and information to other WIN members and micronetworks. Key information can also be included in our monthly ezine which goes out to an even greater audience. We will also give you the opportunity at relevant WIN events to speak about your network and specialist area, and will seek actively to link you with other groups and networks to facilitate additional cross-sector or region-wide collaboration, to help with the growth of your network.
On an individual level, all of your members joining WIN through your micronetwork will receive training to develop their networking skills, free attendance to monthly events focusing on a range of current business issues, plus a range of exclusive member offers and discounts on a range of professional and personal products and services. Critically, this is a chance for your members to connect with and promote themselves to a far wider network of women in business, outside their own sector or area, who can assist on a whole range of personal and professional issues.
There is no charge to you as a network or group to become a WIN micronetwork. All that is needed is for five or more of your members to collectively sign up to join WIN, stating your network as their group. They then qualify for a reduced membership fee of just £100+VAT per person per year (individual membership is £135+VAT) and your network, as long as you have an individual to take an active lead and can prove you are a bonafida group, automatically qualifies as a WIN micronetwork.
As a micronetwork, there are a number of extra ways in which you can scale up your association and involvement with WIN—but some charges may apply to these. Options include the delivery of joint events, additional profile and member functionality on the WIN website, and membership of the brand new Women in Business Forum. This will report directly to the Northern Business Forum and is also involved in shaping national policy on women’s enterprise. This is therefore a unique opportunity to provide a voice for your members on a regional and national scale; and to be in touch with developing news and policy that may affect them and their businesses. Further details on these additional micronetwork benefits will be discussed upon your enquiry.
If you have a supergroup’ of 20 or more members that would like to join, please contact us to discuss further opportunities and discounts.
