Providing Practical Business Support For Local Women In Business

Handbags & Briefcases is a friendly and welcoming networking, learning and support group for WOMEN in business in Greater Manchester. We are a voluntary run small business networking group catering for entrepreneurial, self-employed women who have a passion to succeed.

Starting any business can be a lonely place, but I think a group like this is invaluable, not only for their great inspirational speakers but to meet like-minded people.​

Joining our networking group means you will be meeting local like-minded women with a range of business skills and experience. Some have long-standing businesses, others are just starting out and support is freely given in a pressure-free, relaxed environment.

As a member you will have access to a wealth of knowledge, practical business advice such as finance, accounting, legal, marketing, sales and communication delivered through regular sounding boards.

Our events are designed to help you build your business skills and confidence in a sociable environment, on days and times that vary to give members flexibility between their work and personal commitments.

To inspire you and keep our events interesting and fresh we invite a range of specialist expert speakers to share their knowledge and experiences. Our SOUNDING BOARD meetings are available to members and non-members, and provide an opportunity to work with your peers in small groups, discuss your business challenges, share your concerns and learn new skills to help you progress your business.

We also encourage our members to participate in the events, join our committee or make suggestions and recommendations about the topics they want us to explore – keeping our events inclusive, topical, relevant and fun! Join us today and build rewarding relationships with our members from across the Greater Manchester area.
