What is Devon Women In Business?

Devon Women In Business (DWIB) has transformed itself since 2021 when Louise Jenner took over the facebook group and restarted the monthly networking lunches. The group now has over a thousand followers across social media and the ethos is to support professional women working across the county in all sectors and to celebrate their achievements.

Louise says, “You can find DWIB on all your favourite platforms so there is an opportunity for everyone to get involved.”

Supporting Devon Women In Business

The supportive side of DWIB is all about the networking but don’t worry, it’s not the kind of networking you might have experienced before! This is friendly and informal. We’re not there to sell at each other; we’re there to build relationships and have conversations. To collaborate and help one another to succeed.

We have plans to expand the kinds of events that we run in 2023. For now, we meet once a month for a delicious networking lunch.

Celebrating Devon Women In Business – The DWIB Awards

Louise Jenner and Maureen Frost also organise the annual Devon Women In Business Awards and the DWIB Awards 2022 took place on 26th November, recognising the achievements of female business owners and employees across Devon.

Judging the awards this year were Louise Jenner, The Dream Job Coach, Maureen Frost from Astrality Business Services and Emma Woodward of Dawes Accountants.  Each category sponsor was also invited to be a Guest Judge for their category.

 

Awards Night

After the judging there were finalists in 8 categories from all over Devon. On the 26th November 2022, the winners were revealed at a glittering ceremony at the Buckfast Abbey Conference Centre.

All 2022 finalists and winners are listed under their respective categories here.

The room was decorated by Wendy and the team from Decorations and Celebrations and looked magical. Guests were entertained by Meghan Rae Music and danced the night away.

Over £500 was raised during our Charity Prize Draw in aid of Children’s Hospice South West and Trevi.

Stunning photos of the celebrations taken by Steph Stevens Creative Brand Photography can be seen here.
