The Association of Scottish Businesswomen (ASB) is truly one of its kind. Founded in 1995, this amazing membership organisation is all about connecting, inspiring, empowering, and supporting women in business.
Previously exclusively for businesswomen based in Scotland, it’s now opening its doors to businesswomen from across the MCN Network.
Membership of the ASB costs just £50 / year, but the benefits are huge - in fact, and this could be one of the best investments you make in both your personal and professional development.
And you don’t need to be in Scotland to benefit from becoming a member - with so much now being done virtually, there’s nothing stopping you.
So, if you want to meet some inspirational women, gets some top tips on business strategy, share experiences and learn from the best, then why not give it a go?
More than 350 businesswomen across Scotland have already done so, and they’ve never looked back!
