SEED Networking for Women

SEED, a community of women who believe that by sharing their stories, their personal lives and businesses will grow and bloom.


B.Hive, the stylish, feminine women’s business hubs and lounges, where women connect, grow and do business. B.Hive is my passion and dream, created in collaboration with Regus. Visit the B.Hive flagship in Southampton Street or our recently opened B.Hives in Manchester and Bristol.  Click here for information on the exclusive membership offer to all members of SEED.

'Creating a feminine space for female entrepreneurs.' A great article about B.Hive in The Independent.

Is your business irresistible?

At this time of year so many businesses are really vying for our attention - presents, clothes, services and programmes!  it can be very overwhelming... However, if you're like me there will be certain companies and brands that you prefer above others.  They draw me back time and time again.   In a sense they are irresistible - tempting, desirable, enticing and appealing! Even though we each have our own personal preferences and reasons when making a purchase, I believe there are some aspects…See More

Welcome to the Seed Community for Women

Have you ever been telling a story to a group of women, and they begin nodding their heads, saying how similar things have happened to them?
As each woman begins sharing her experiences, an energy gets created that spreads around the group like wildfire. Whether about our lovers and husbands, our health, our beliefs, our kids, our work, or how we want to create value in our local and global community, we women empathise, connect, and resonate with each other.

Remember the SEED Network website is the place to go for lots of information about starting your own business, SEED Circles, the SEED Coaching Programme, help and advice, books and a whole lot more.
