Brighton & Hove Membership Directory

The Ladies Lunch Clubs’ membership is made up of professional women from all sectors and stages of professional life, offering a community for women to learn, share and encourage one another in a supportive environment. Whether you’re working for a company or are self-employed, surrounded by staff or working alone, we feel sure that you’ll enjoy and benefit from the networking opportunities that the Ladies Lunch Clubs offer.

At each lunch, attendees are encouraged to swap their business cards with all the other attendees, however as we now run events in a number of different locations across Sussex and Kent, we have now added a ‘Members’ Directory’ (see below). This allows attendees to add value to their attendance by sharing details of the product/service that they or their firm offer, across a far wider geographical span.

The membership page has an annual payment of £30 plus vat. You will be able to gain access to a listing which includes your name, the name of your company, a hyperlink to your website and a company description. If you would like to be added to the directory, please contact us at admin@consortiumbiz.co.uk.
