We’re so excited to launch West Devon WiRE.
Everyone is very welcome to join our meetings – online and in person – we have a wide rural area to cover down here!
It can be quite lonely, running your own business, so your local WiRE Network is here for support, understanding, advice, and inspiration.
If your impression of networking is a conference room breakfast with men in grey suits trying to foist their business cards on you, then breathe a sigh of relief – you won’t get that with WiRE!
Yes, we encourage you to swap contact details and tell people about what you do. But we also encourage you to ask for things you need, recommend each other, invite friends to join us, and help us to create the network that everyone wants to go to!
Network Leaders are volunteers with their own businesses to run, so we’re delighted for your input and assistance with making West Devon WiRE the best it can be.
HOW IT WORKS
See ‘Upcoming Events’ on the right-hand side and book the ones you want to attend. All events must be booked in advance.
In-person WiRE Network Meetings are generally not free. The cost for each event covers refreshments and room hire. Typically WiRE members pay less than non-members. Costs are shown on each individual event.
WiRE members are welcome at any/all networks in the county or over the border, and online. Non-members (former or guests) can attend meetings twice before we contact you to join WiRE. Membership is just £50 per year – the best value networking around!
WiRE (Women in Rural Enterprise) is a business support network, with the head office based at Harper Adams University in Shropshire. Offering nationwide support for new and established businesses, the WiRE business package delivers supportive peer group networking through the volunteer led local groups plus online benefits including marketing, business resources and PR opportunities, skills sessions, WiRE Wellness and National ‘Network Online’ Events. WiRE also lobbies at a national and local level to influence policy and raise the profile of women in business.
