Exciting new developments in the works ladies!
A new partnership has been forged between two of Yorkshire’s fastest growing business networking organisations to offer a wider range of benefits to their members, Yorkshire Enterprise Network, one of the county’s biggest networking groups and us, L4N UK!
By joining up with YEN we are undergoing major growth and have extended our services, introducing new membership packages.
The new scheme will give businesses instant access to a broad range of benefits, ranging from online promotion, directory listings and access to business advice, events, sponsorship opportunities and tenders – including the unique L4N UK Passport to Success online resource, helping businesses to grow and increase profits.
YEN Director Sheraz Malik said: “We were in the process of putting together our new membership packages when I was introduced to the L4N UK directors and it was soon evident that our two organisations had a similar ethos and we’re moving in the same direction – so it made sense to collaborate and bring even more businesses together.
“We already have quite a good gender balance at our meetings, but we have been looking at ways of improving this even further and ensuring that our events are equally attractive to men and women. Although the joint membership will be only be available to women, there will be benefits for everyone, as all our members will have access to a wider audience and a broader range of businesses at our monthly meetings and online.”
L4N UK Director Judith Wright said: “Our group is dedicated to providing opportunities for women in business to network, gain support and confidence, learn new skills and develop collaborative associations with other women in business.
“There’s no denying that men and women network differently. Women like to build relationships first and the feedback we’ve had over the years is that they often feel more confident in a women-only networking environment when first starting out or returning to business after a period away.
“This new relationship will mean that our members can progress into mainstream networking, on a level playing field, building on the confidence they have gained and building on the skills they have learned with L4N.”

This is a great step forward for both L4N UK and YEN and we hope you can all join us for this journey!
