OUR COMMUNITY OPENS TO NEW MEMBERS
IN JANUARY EACH YEAR BY REFERRAL

GREATER CIRCLE

When you join our community you become a Greater Circle member. 

As a Greater Circle member you know that you want to be part of a community of like-minded business women and know that committing to regular touch points with fellow members who are often experiencing similar issues or challenges will provide you the support you know will help you achieve more.  You love the idea of being able to develop deep connections through familiarity and regularity. 

The Greater Circle meet regularly throughout year and the commitment is ‘ALL IN’ so we set the schedule for the year, allowing every member to lock in the dates.

On joining, our members understand the commitment. You can view the schedule and more details below.

INNER CIRCLE

The Inner Circle is an extension of our Greater Circle Membership.  Designed for members who want to focus on their goals and know that regularly, structured support by way of an accountability group, will help.

This is where connections deepen for life.  The level of vulnerability, trust and support our members gain from an Inner Circle is pure magic but they also know the commitment it takes.

Each Inner Circle member has been active within the Greater Circle for a minimum of 12 months.  If you are a current member and think you would like to be part of an Inner Circle, please click on the link below.

OUR CODE

We believe the magic only happens within our community through….

COMMITMENT & RESPECT

  • We turn up to scheduled gatherings and meetings
  • We are accountable and hold each other to account
  • We bring our whole selves and pass no judgment

TRUST

  • Anything discussed is in the vault
  • We follow through on our word

VALUE & SUPPORT

  • We are willing to share our professional and personal experiences and insights
  • We are open to feedback and advice
  • We give and receive equally to the community and never take it for granted
  • We get out of this community what we put in

Chances are you’ve been to networking events and found them fruitless or just plain uncomfortable. You might be thinking “I don’t want to introduce who I am and what I do, over and over to no end”.  Perhaps you have never made any real connections or even worse, you’ve found yourself on the receiving end of countless business cards and sales pitches. You might also find the whole thing confronting or competitive. 

This has likely left you cautious about going to other events and wanting to know more about what you’re getting yourself into before committing. If any of this sounds like you, you are likely to be looking to connect with people who want to really get to know you, your business and your needs and you’re also open to sharing your experience, insights and advice too. Secret Women’s Business is unlike what you’ve experienced elsewhere…

“I was skeptical about joining this group largely because of prior experiences. I came into this group seeking an accountability partner to help keep me on track with my business goals. What I didn’t realise at the time, was how much I would benefit from being part of the Inner Circle. I’m a private person so initially found the idea sharing challenges difficult. Being in an intimate, well curated group of women I ‘leaned in’. As I result I have received great insight, advice, support and wisdom that has helped me make great gains personally and professionally.”

“I have a busy schedule, how do I know that I can go ‘all in’”.

Your time is precious and valuable. Many of us are juggling a whole list of things so it makes sense to think carefully about what you give time to. We do expect our members to turn up to all activities – this is where the magic is.  To support you to plan, we already have every date set for the year ahead so you can schedule it in your calendar ahead of time. We are really focused on sticking to schedules and make sure our activities and gatherings always start and finish on time.  We also know life happens and support you if you miss something during the year.

You may be thinking ‘I don’t feel like I have anything to offer the group’.

If that’s how you’re feeling, you’re not alone. Some of our members have joined SWB unsure of what they have to offer others, especially if they are in the midst of really challenging times. From being connected to the group and leaning in, they’ve since said they now realise that they have been able to contribute in a variety of ways. Even if you are unable to recognise your value for others just yet, you will once you have been a part of our community for a short while.

“I’ve joined other women’s groups before and I haven’t got what I thought I’d get.”

We hear you. It’s one of the major reasons this community was created. We’ve walked away from other groups and events feeling inspired but soon feeling flat. It is an unnerving feeling when you feel like you’re left to take the next steps alone. We, too have sat at tables where there have been no real connections made, event after event. Our members who join the Greater Circle or Inner Circle say that joining has been game-changing in terms of their ability to take action and move forward

At SWB we know how important support, planning and accountability is to achieve things. We know that if when we plan and focus on what is important to us and are supported along the way, we exceed our expectations.

As I don’t own my own business, I was really unsure about how a group like this could benefit me. However, from our first meeting I knew this was different. It is about making sure I am prioritising the things in each area of my life that are the most important to me, and being held accountable by a group of really supportive like minded ladies. Although I don’t have my own business goals, I definitely have career and personal ones. Having a place where I feel safe to talk about the hurdles and celebrate the wins has allowed me to define and continually work on achieving my purpose.

SWB is a much needed resource for women in business and provides support, friendship, accountability and a safe place to explore and grow ideas. As the Founder and Director, Anna Chipperfield has taken her vision and drive to support women in business and I am delighted to provide this testimonial and a long standing member.  Being a mother, wife and business owner has its challenges and SWB has helped me navigate through these and develop both myself and my businesses.

WHO IS BEHIND SECRET WOMEN’S BUSINESS?

Secret Women’s Business was created in 2016 by Anna Chipperfield and Megan Kelly (along with a few founding members) after realising there wasn’t a forum where they could bring their networks together and really get to know each other and their businesses.  What started as a few events each year has turned into something very powerful and it has only just begun.

‘How great would it be if every woman navigating the business world had a group of women as her Inner Circle,  filled with trust, vulnerability and accountability, to give her support, guidance, a high five or a kick up the butt – whatever and whenever it is needed, so she can achieve everything she wants! Just imagine that!’

Anna Chipperfield, Founder
