Drop-in sessions are every Thursday, 12.30 - 14:00 at The Women in Business hub.

Skills Workshops

We offer monthly stand-alone business skills workshops. Open to all women.

The workshops are small group workshops, with a maximum of 8 women, so you all get good attention.

Visit our events page for a more detailed overview of each workshop and to book via Eventbrite.

Weekly Drop-In and Support

The Growing Club holds weekly drop-in sessions every Thursday between 12.30 and 14:00 at GC HQ – 7-4-3 Cameron House, White Cross. The drop-in is open to all women for general support, so do come and say hello.

We offer support, advice and guidance – (or when we’re able to, just a brew while browsing our selection of business books in the hub library.) Every Thursday volunteers are here to help with general support and guidance. Please email admin@thegrowingclub.co.uk if you have any questions about Drop-In.

"The ladies I have met through the drop in and meet ups are amazing, so encouraging and supportive and it's great to be able to speak to others who are facing or have faced the same struggles or troubles along their journey. I'm very early on in my journey to success and I'm grateful to have Jane and The Growing Club to turn to."
