I proudly manage the SW Oxfordshire Territory.

The Abingdon, Witney & Oxford City West groups in SW Oxfordshire have been launched in quick succession since the Autumn of 2020. Many of the groups’ members opted to book their seats in these groups well ahead of the actual launch events.

All of them are popular, dynamic and vibrant groups where you can be assured of excellent business connections, to meet local business women and step out of the isolation so many female entrepreneurs can feel.

All of the members pride themselves on the strategic connections that they have created, collaborating with each other to create new projects and services.

Abingdon meets on the 3rd Thursday of the month from 12 – 2pm (excluding August & December).

Oxford City West meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month from 12 – 2pm (excluding August & December).

Witney meets on the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 12 – 2pm (excluding August & December).

Check out the group meetings to find details of our current members and their professions.

Call me, Sophie Watson, on 07939 130860 to find out how you can visit and then join our group.
