The ESBC (Edinburgh's Businesswomen's Club) is a Networking club for women within which, Caroline Buchan, a corporate solicitor at law firm Semple Fraser, is our president. The current Vice-President is Angela Hamilton, an events manager for boutique hotel, Orocco Pier.
This year, we are trying to progress the Club through a range of fun events which will be coming up over the next few months (including monthly lunches, a cocktail master class, training workshops as well as many other business to business events).
We already have a huge database of member but are presently doing a recruitment drive. Coming out of the recession, we the Club as a perfect spring board to build on existing, and make new, connections within the Edinburgh business community.
Our chosen charity for the coming year is St Columba's Hospice and we hope to raise as much money as possible for them through our various events (including an extra special event which is scheduled for October - watch this space!).
Through our site we plan to help keep everyone up to date with our forthcoming events - it will be more interactive and we aim to hold online surgeries connecting the business community to each other. It will also encourage the use of local professionals by way of more accessible contact via the ESBC.
We hope you will help us in our drive to connect and support other women in business and If you fancy trying it out – you or any interested colleagues are more than welcome to come along to one of our lunch as guests.
If you would like any more information, please do not hesitate to contact Caroline - we are happy to meet up to tell you a bit more about the Club and what we are trying to achieve.
