Leicestershire & Rutland WiRE Network

Network Leaders:


Welcome to WiRE in the East Midlands.

Thank you for your interest in the WiRE Network for Leicestershire and Rutland. We are 6 months into our first year in office and really enjoying the positive feedback we receive about our meetings. In the summer we will be taking a slightly more laid back approach and if you want to make sure you are kept informed please make sure we have your email address so that we can send you our monthly newsletter. We encourage you to contact us with your thoughts and ideas for the region.

We have planned our meetings to feature really inspirational speakers or themes, and we will also be holding them in various interesting places throughout our area (and a little bit beyond). Everyone is welcome and we are really looking forward to meeting with you, specifically with the following in mind:

  • To meet in an interesting place or space where women business owners can share expertise and knowledge
  • Each meeting will be an opportunity to build and try out new skills with others who are also passionate about getting ‘creative’ with business ideas
  • Providing a safe and supportive environment to discuss and find solutions to your business challenges – or maybe even if you want ideas for starting a business
  • Mutual minds with which to develop ideas to help you build sustainable business – a problem shared is a problem halved after all!

Do keep an eye on this page for more information or contact Network Leaders Claire McFadden or Jane Batty and they will add you to the mailing list.
