'Highly practical, informative and motivating' – that’s how members describe our events.

These popular meetups, expert workshops and brunches are informed by our experience as business support practitioners, business owners and entrepreneurship educators.

Come along and experience The Thrive Effect. You won't find any mention of 'side hustles', 'girls in business' or shady ‘earn from home’ schemes. 

We’re here to give female founders and women in business the inspiration, knowledge and connections they need to grow – whatever their business ambitions.

MEETUP: The Online Thrive Meetup for Female Founders and Women in Business
Tuesday, 12 May 2020
18:00 to 20:00 via Zoom

An informative talk delivered by Kathryn Eade, Founder of Up+Thrive, on 'How to Build Your Business from the Inside Out', followed by two problem-solving, peer support sessions.

Kathryn works as coach and consultant specialising in mindset and resilience. Having started and scaled her own learning consultancy, her passion is now to help female founders and leaders to grow their business from the inside out, enabling them to avoid overwhelm and achieve sustainable success.

Last year she moved back to Chester from Montreal where she worked in collaboration with others to create the city's first bilingual Entrepreneurial Hub. Her current work includes collaborating with business support organisations in the North West to create programmes that meet the needs of women in business and being a one-to-one business growth coach for start-ups and scale-ups, and a Board Advisor to SMEs.

By the end of the session, you will have:

1. Explored what happens when we are out of our comfort zone
2. Shared what we think, feel and experience during times of change
3. Identified a set of well-tested strategies you can use to help turn uncertainty into opportunity

Bring your own drinks and nibbles!
