In Pictures: Women in business networking event at Queen's University

Queen’s University recently played host to a ‘Queen of Your Business’ themed event, run by the popular Women In Business NI network, and over 100 women gathered to share their unique knowledge and insights into how collaboration helps create queens in business.

Edel Doherty, Women in Business NI Chair said: “Our amazing network of ladies, involved in all aspects of commerce in Northern Ireland, provides us with a huge wealth of business knowledge and experience that, when shared, can genuinely help others succeed. This Christmas networking event was all about collaboration and our hope is that our members get some useful contacts and ideas that they can use in their own businesses to achieve success.”

Guest speaker, Cathy Martin, Managing Director of successful PR and event management company, CMPR, as well as director of the hugely successful collaboration project which is Belfast FASHIONWEEK, was invited to share her business insights with the assembled guests.

“In my experience you can’t have business success without collaboration – both with other people and in some cases, other companies. And in the current business climate it’s important to tie up with others to ensure best practice – and best results for everyone. It was so encouraging to see so many women share their stories and best practice examples with each other - only good can come of it.”

Edel said: “Women in Business NI supports and empowers new and established women owned businesses and women in management positions, by providing information, encouragement and business connections throughout Northern Ireland all year round.
