Call +44(0)330 024 3200 and discover how we can help you.

We created SHE Means Business as a free bi-monthly lunch & learn event to support entrepreneurs in Hertfordshire. They are relaxed and friendly events where you can hear from a variety of speakers with opportunities to network and make new contacts.

These events are currently being held online until we are able to get together in-person again. We offer a supportive networking group in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, whilst our guest speakers present their topic for the session.

We offer the opportunity to book a free 30 minute advice session with one of our friendly experts before or after the lunch to answer any questions or worries you may have about tax, accounts or payroll.

Our networking event is made for ambitious entrepreneurs, growing businesses and those wanting to learn and develop their skills but what are the benefits?

  • Opportunity to network and connect with link minded individuals in a relaxed environment
  • Chance to learn new skills (soft and hard)
  • Speak to accounting experts, we offer everyone the chance to book a 30 minute session with one of our friendly experts
  • Opportunity to come and present at one of our upcoming sessions
  • Enjoy a healthy and nutritious lunch when held in the office

Liz Wicks, SHE Means Business host

“Many small business owners become entrepreneurs to have flexibility and be at home around family life. I noticed from attending early morning and evening networking events that many talented individuals, often women, were not present, so I wanted to create an event that was easily accessible for all and had a culture of support, understanding and encouragement.

I was also very mindful that it is easy to ask a question when ‘you know you don’t know’ something, but what about when you ‘don’t know what you don’t know’? That’s when it’s easy to fall into difficulty. I wanted an event where attendees could take away more than just business cards, and my target has always been that if just one person has a moment where they say ‘ah ha, that’s something I can do immediately to benefit my business’ then I deem the event a success.”

Here’s a selection of past events:
