W-Power is for you if you are a female business owner or entrepreneur and based in HIE Argyll and the Islands area, Arran, Cumbrae, or Dumfries and Galloway.
In order to get the most from the group we recommend that you actively engage in the platform and support and encourage other female entrepreneurs with their business. We would be very grateful if you can also take some time to feedback on the network and the learning and development webinars and other sessions, as this network is driven by the needs of members, and we’ll be looking continuously to tweak and improve its content to give you more and more of what’s useful to you as women running a business in Argyll.
