Quotes from delegates
WIRE is a fabulous opportunity to meet fabulous women striving with their own businesses in a friendly warm and inclusive environment.
Sue…Sue Tonks, HydroVeg Kits, www.hydroveg.co.uk
My business had grown and prospered as a result of my membership of WiRE. I loved the concept and the values of WiRE so much that I became a network leader and it;s been my privilege to see other female business owners grow in confidence and develop skills through attending meetings and receiving support. The framework that the national WiRE organisation has established makes it easy to run a welcoming and supportive network. Thank you for being here WiRE.

WiRE is a great safe place to try things aout, share ideas, get support. Its an excellent critical friend. There is a warm and friendly loyalty we feel in our groups and we try to do business together. WiRE makes us realise that we are ‘a thing’ worthy of respect and our critical and vital part in the rural economy.
