Female Networking Association | Business Directory

The Female Networking Association (formerly The Business Girls Network) was founded by Amanda Ayres and launched in February 2014. The community is focused on making connections, visibility, growth and collaboration. Amanda has an unfaltering passion for connecting women together.

Amanda has a wealth of experience in running networking events. There are over 4000+ women in the community. Amanda has hosted hundreds of events, many of which have been sell-out events and over 3,000 women have attended. Many businesses are thriving and growing because of the support of the community.

Networking is key to business owners looking to grow. Amanda’s mission is to educate female business owners on the power of making connections and to encourage business owners who have never networked before to give it a go!

Over the six years, Amanda has seen and felt the power of making connections and networking in action.  She knows that businesses thrive and grow when relationships are built with deep, genuine, authentic connections.

  • Providing opportunities to increase visibility.
  • Encouraging the ethos of collaborating and not competing.
  • Providing an eco-system of support where giving more than taking is the norm.
