Welcome to the home of the #swibtribe

THE business networking group for women in the South West.

The place to be, if you are looking for supportive, warm and friendly networking that is all about you, your development and your business. Being part of a Tribe of successful women who are there for you in good times and bad, makes achieving your business dreams so much easier.

All of our meetings are now run online, in the same format with at least one personal or professional development session, structured networking to help you promote your business, one to one sessions to help build that important business relationship, as well as the opportunity to get support and advice from other business owners.

Successful Women in Business … because it matters

Looking for business networking with a difference? The Successful Women in Business Network (SWIB) is THE business networking meeting for women in the South West. We hold monthly business networking events for women across Devon, Dorset and Somerset, as well as an annual Conference to celebrate International Women’s Day and the Successful Women Awards.

The SWIBTribe, founded by Gill Donnell MBE, brings personal development, business growth and celebrations of success together in one place.

Since our necessary move online, we now also offer regular Power Hours, from 2-3pm on Thursdays, where you can join us for a packed hour of professional development to help you in your business or organisation.

Non-members can join any of our meetings on TWO occasions, so why not book in and experience the support and great collaborative environment that we create within our groups.

Running your own business is not an easy option and it can often be a lonely place, we know this and work hard to ensure that you have a safe and welcoming place to come to, where you can get support as well as celebrate those successes.

Currently we are not able to offer face to face meeting, but as soon as this is safe, we will be offering the opportunity to catch up in ‘real life’ and develop those relationships even more.

So why not join us at one of our Tribe meetings, where you’ll be guaranteed a warm welcome as well as an opportunity to increase your business skills and develop your personal qualities.

We specialise in supporting start up businesses, as we understand the challenges of taking that first step to realise your dream and we have lots of professional services members who can also help support you on your journey.

Membership of our network brings many added benefits to both you and your business, do have a look at the different membership options we offer.

Become a Franchisee

Make SWIB Your Business

We are thrilled to be able to offer to enthusiastic women who are passionate about supporting others, the opportunity to run their own group. What better platform to start a new business or grow your current business and have fun at the same time. Usually when you start your own business you have to rely on your own knowledge and expertise, but as a franchisee you are buying into an established and proven model that will generate an income much quicker than starting from scratch.
