Leading Ladies Header


Leading Ladies business network for professional women welcomes guests from all sectors in the city. Since launching in August 2011 Leading Ladies has grown into one of the most popular (and glamorous!) networks of its kind. 

Guests are encouraged to join us with a colleague or client and make valuable business contacts. 
Click here to see a list of participating companies.
Join us at Creating Brand You, a practical and inspiring Leading Ladies networking event in association with Creative Shift, the Hippodrome’s in-house boutique business consultancy, taking place on Wed 12 Nov (5.30-7.30pm).
Creative ShiftHelga Henry
In an increasingly competitive market for clients, for recognition, for attention and career advancement, how do you stand out? What can you do to deliver distinctive service to customers and clients and win more work?
This is an ideal chance for you to consider how to take a leading role in your own career. We will consider:

- personal strengths and how to identify them;
- some thoughts about packaging;
- storytelling for success.
Expect a powerful mix of presentation, personal reflection and exercises (plus some trademark Leading Ladies laughter and sweet treats!).
Tickets cost £35 and include: facilitator-led session, glass of champagne, taste-bud tapas & personal guest list. Book NOW with Rosie on 0121 689 3068.  Because this is a content-led session, places are STRICTLY LIMITED.

At our latest event, guests embarked upon a seasonal cocktail journey in the capable hands of award-winning mixologist, Robert Wood of The Edgbaston, one of the newest and most luxuriant venues on the prestigious Calthorpe Estate who sponsored the master class.

Learning to balance ‘the booze’ with mixers, hand-prepared syrups, locally sourced tinctures and flourishing decorative touches, Leading Ladies also learned that there is much more to ice than meets the eye.
Networking has never tasted better and the sell-out, seated event proved immensely popular with members and their clients who were able to indulge in what one guest described as ‘proper conversation’. 
The evening raised nearly £1,000 for Hippodrome Plus and attracted some generously donated prizes from soon-to-launch, The Highfield, PT Trainer Dave Stevens, Oliver James Hair and of course The Edgbaston itself.  We are delighted that Serena Tutt from Selfridges is getting the opportunity to relive the master class, this time round in the sumptuous surroundings of this fabulous boutique hotel and cocktail lounge – enjoy!
For one night only, Leading Ladies turned into networking alley cats at the first event of the 2014-15 season and opening night performance of the record-breaking smash-hit musical, Cats.
With 30 companies represented, the room was a-buzz with cross-sector conversation and the exchange of business cards. Generous donations to the prize draw helped to raise nearly £1,000 for Hippodrome Plus.

The Cats who got the cream winners walked away with gorgeous Great British flowers grown in Birmingham by Tuckshop Flowers, treatments by local skincare specialist Judi Gilbert and a winner’s wrap treat from Sarah Piercy of Forever.
Our trademark sweet treats and styling to complement the show’s spectacular set were supplied by Amanda Plester at AVA Events Styling.
