Casa welcomes a new generation of business women


Entrepreneurial women in Chesterfield can boost their business during a monthly lunch meeting when the Women in Business Network (WIBN) launches at the Casa Hotel this month.

Founded in 2005, WIBN is a networking organisation created for women, by women.  WIBN appeals to women who are serious about networking and welcomes business owners and employed business women to attend a monthly meeting, to gain new business through word of mouth.

Louise Cutting, 42, a Travel Counsellor from South Normanton, will launch Chesterfield’s first WIBN at Casa on Tuesday May 29th.   The mum of two is encouraging local women to join the monthly meetings, which allow time for members to give a spotlight presentation to promote their services.  The meetings also include networking and business support, a ‘Let’s talk business’ slot where referrals can be exchanged, and an opportunity for all the women in the room to give a one minute presentation.

Louise Cutting commented:

“I’ve wanted to do this for years because I think Chesterfield would really benefit from a Women in Business Network. A lot of the networking events in the area are male dominated and are either breakfast networking events or after work drinks, both of which clash with the school run and childcare. The WIBN meetings are at lunch time, which is fits in with busy schedules.”

“WIBN offers women the opportunity to expand their business in the area and make new contacts. I have had a great response from the women of Chesterfield and we already have a number of women who have taken membership ahead of the first meeting. As we only allow one profession per group I can see the spaces filling up quickly.”

Casa Operations Director, Stuart Downham commented:

“We host a lot of different networking events at Casa, so we are delighted that Louise chose us to launch this new group. Supporting and boosting local business is vital for Chesterfield, so we’re honoured to be involved. We hope our facilities will appeal to the members and they will consider us in the future too.”
