Women in Business has revealed its new Centre of Learning which will play host to a suite of market-leading training programmes for its members, including accessible and relevant one-day programmes for those who are short on time.
The Centre of Learning initiative was launched with the ‘Back to Business’ programme which is aimed at female employees who are returning to work after maternity leave. This innovative programme will offer support to these women returning to their role, equipping them with the tools, insights and confidence to influence and excel.
Following research and extensive feedback from valued Women in Business members, the Centre of Learning will offer a wide range of bespoke programmes that will actively support, mentor and aid business people, from female entrepreneurs to corporate professionals, on both their personal and professional journeys.

Head of Business at Women in Business, Lesley O’Hanlon commented, “These facilitated programmes were established to provide an empowering space to support Women in Business members personally and professionally throughout their careers. Women in Business is Northern Ireland’s largest and fastest growing business support network for women and we are extremely passionate about encouraging our members to climb the ladder of success and understand that, through continuous learning and training, they can continue to develop transferable skills and the motivation needed to create a sense of purpose”.
