Welcome to the home of the #swibtribe

THE business networking group for women in the South West.

During the current COVID19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, the Successful Women in Business Network continues to engage the business community through our events, which are now conducted via Zoom.  

All of our meetings will be run online, in the same format with a development session, structured networking, one to ones, 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 weekly Power Hours, from 2-3pm on a Thursday, you can join us for a packed hour of professional development to help you in your business or organisation.

Non-members can come along to any of our meetings on TWO occasions, so why not join us 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.

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.

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.
