“I originally met Debbie almost 5 years ago when new to networking, after attending some of her meetings at Businesswomen UnLtd. It didn’t take long to learn with delight what a kind-hearted and generous soul she is. Everything she has done in business is done with the goal of elevating other business owners and creating a caring community, where we can all feel part of something bigger than ourselves.

Debbie champions everyone, will support anyone needing a spotlight on their business and has worked tirelessly to create annual awards events and awards to recognise the achievements of our community. She is a generous supporter of many charities and this support also filters through to the meetings where charities are warmly invited to attend.

What Debbie has achieved over the years is an inspiration to us all, and proof that you can be a genuinely good person and create success and growth in a nurturing way.”

“I’ve been attending meetings at Businesswomen UnLtd for over 5 years. While I have tried quite a few networks out, this is the one that I have stayed with since the beginning of my journey as a business owner.

I have loved the way that all the group leaders make anyone feel welcome, no matter where they are in their business or what they do. And the way that Debbie Gilbert has created such an inclusive and collaborative community – it is such a breath of fresh air to have business owners who do similar things sitting side by side and being 100% welcome.

Collaboration is encouraged and celebrated, even facilitated by the way that the meetings are run and the messaging that Debbie and the group leaders convey to help us to benefit beyond the time when we are in the room together. I have forged countless friendships and connections over the years and at every meeting there is a fresh opportunity to build new connections and nurture existing ones.

During the pandemic, Debbie and the team were so quick to take the meetings online and made it affordable and easy for us to attend regularly. It was a lifeline for me personally and professionally, I honestly do not believe I would still be running my business without the support of Busineswomen UnLtd. We were fortunate to also receive numerous opportunities to fine tune skills that would help us to market our businesses and survive the difficult times.

Businesswomen UnLtd are also fantastic at recognising achievements and also caring business owners with their awards. Rather than purely celebrating financial growth, the awards recognise caring business owners and how they contribute to their community and their clients.

I look forward to years of Businesswomen UnLtd continuing to be my favourite network!”

This is a fantastic group and differentiates itself from other networking groups due to the following: No lock outs, Mid-morning meetings, Friendly, all-inclusive group, Interesting speakers, useful Facebook group, ability to transfer a no show to another meeting, acceptance of flexible working, mutual support and a relaxed atmosphere!

From attending I have gained new clients, I have expanded my local network, I have loved meeting similar business women and felt a real sense of companionship. The social media assistance has been invaluable and it has given me more confidence in running a flexible business around my family.

I’ve tried a fair few networking events and none of them I’ve been to are so down to earth (non stuffy!), fun as these one’s. Fantastic knowledge is shared each week by a team of experts so not only do you get to meet others in your industry, or meet other services that might be handy for you, you gain real knowledge too. Debbie is such a warm person and shares so much knowledge and has a genuine desire to help others. I’m so grateful for her help and for all the great people I’ve met so far.

I was recommended by a friend/business owner. I was quite nervous at first not really knowing what to expect. I needn’t have been as everyone was so welcoming and friendly that I soon started to look forwards to our monthly get together. The support I have received for my business has been brilliant and I love the fact I now know so many business owners to recommend to my friends and clients. There’s no big financial outlay either which when you are just dipping your toe in is a huge benefit. The friendships formed by attending regularly and by visiting other meetings within the group is hugely beneficial. I couldn’t imagine my business life without the meetings to be honest. Friendly, supportive and fun.

The groups are warm and friendly with a great many highly skilled and talented professional people just waiting to assist each other. I love it and would definitely recommend it to others, male or female, who are looking for people who mean business.

This was one of the first networking groups I attended when I started my entrepreneurial journey in 2014.

It’s a fantastic networking opportunity whether you’re starting in business or are an established entrepreneur. There is tons of support, helpful information and it attracts a wonderful group of likeminded women. I love Debbie Gilbert’s approach and the way she’s built such an amazing community.
