We are delighted to announce that Helen Weeks and Sarah Loftus have volunteered to help manage the new Yorkshire Women in Business group, recently established by The Yorkshire Society.

Helen runs her own successful coaching business and Sarah is Managing Director of Make it York and Visit York. We thank them for their support and commitment. They have put out an open invitation to anyone who wants to help run the group, which is growing by the day, to please get in touch: h.weeks@theyorkshiresociety.org

On behalf of both, Helen said “We are excited to embark on a new journey with women in business, connecting women from all areas of Yorkshire.” She continued “The group is for women and will be run by women. As members, both Sarah and I have volunteered to initially lead and oversee the group. We know that something very special is in the making”.

The purpose of the group is to create a community of Yorkshire businesswomen, allowing them to:

  1. Build strong business relationships.
  2. Give and receive practical, mental and emotional support.
  3. Learn and share experience and expertise.
  4. Work together and collaborate.

Over the next few months we aim to set up regular:

  • Online coffee mornings, with guest speakers
  • Social events
  • Training and workshops


Watch this space for news of an official launch party which will take place in September – date and location to be decided.
