Behind the Scenes: 3 Things That Happen During A LadyBoss Elite Meeting

You may have heard of LadyBoss’ fast-growing programme for female entrepreneurs, LadyBoss Elite. Members first have to be nominated by themselves or a friend, before the LadyBoss team reviews that they fulfill the criteria. If successful, they will be invited to join the programme.

Shikin Hamid, our staff writer reports on what happens behind the scenes of a mysterious LadyBoss Elite meeting.

In The Devil Wears Prada, we watched Andy (Anne Hathaway) land a job at a prestigious Runway magazine only to find herself the assistant to diabolical editor Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep).

I attended a LadyBoss Elite meeting and found its members as fashion-forward … and a lot nicer!

What actually takes place during a meeting?

LadyBoss Elite meetings start with a networking session to introduce our new members, followed by member presentations and a round-table discussion based on topic of mutual interest, such as sales or marketing.

A casual chat among members would be about topics female entrepreneurs care about – ranging from what’s going on in Fintech to boutique staycations.

Soft drinks and wine is usually provided to help members unwind, and at a meeting you can mingle and listen to the challenges of like-minded women entrepreneurs and explore the untapped business opportunities.

But ultimately at these meetings, happening once every 2 months, you will leave feeling absolutely empowered!
