The WISE - February 2020

The Power of Community

So far this year, our networking, collaborations, exhibitions and fairs have been nothing short of miraculous in highlighting the power of community. Add the WBII self-development workshop that started in January with Azkua, several new WBII board members, the creation of the WBII Mighty Comms team and the start of our Business Book Club (initiated by member Johanne Bade), and it's easy to recognise that the WBII is indeed a flourishing community.

Welcome to this month's WISE where you will notice a slight change in layout in preparation of our new website which will soon be launched.

Read further for our upcoming events, articles, new members to introduce and member events to announce, as well as the usual events further afield that may interest you.

Don't forget in 2020 the WBII is focusing on Growth and our programme will provide you, both personally & professionally with the stepping stones.

This month's editor is Lisa Hall: stepping in for our wonderful Newsletter Editor, and one of our new Board members Jane Pocock.
