"We don't meet people by accident, they are meant to cross our path for a reason"

Find out what our lovely members have to say about being a part of the MOTUS Women Entrepreneurs Network…

“I was introduced to MOTUS Women Entrepreneurs Network a few months ago by a good friend and business colleague and was immediately intrigued and drawn to the group ethos. I have networked on and off over the last 6 years and never felt as though it “clicked” for me.

Amanda’s vision for this group ticks so many boxes for me – support with and from like-minded business women, encouragement, meaningful 2-way relationships and lots of encouragement. It can be a lonely place out there and we all need the above from time to time. So whether it’s socialising, walking, business training events or whatever your needs I think this is the group to be part of, and can see it growing over time. I look forward to continuing to meet and build relationships with women involved in all different businesses but with a common aim, to be individuals with a passion for what they do and a willingness to learn and succeed”.

A supportive, welcoming, open & friendly group. Whatever you need, they’re there!

Clare Eaton, Mortgage & Protection Advisor

“A fabulous supportive, helpful, friendly group of woman, supporting each other in business. Masterclasses thought provoking, key to good business practice, and a great opportunity to step back, have the time to think, and share with, and learn from others. Thank you for all your input and advise. So helpful and motivating at the start of my journey. MOTUS what a great network. So glad I joined”

Jane Dyer, Director of Tudor Rose Business Services

“Having attended some stiff and awkward networking meetings when I first started my business, I resigned myself to online networking. Then in early January 2017 I was looking into local networking opportunities online when I came across what was the Women in Business Netwalking Facebook Group (now Motus).
I had my reservations going along on my own, but from the moment I arrived at Linacre Reservoir for my first netwalk, I was made to feel part of the group. The walk passed so quickly, with friendly chat and business advice in equal measure – I had such a good time and didn’t want to go home!
As the group has evolved, I’ve attended the majority of the Netwalks as well as some Business Masterclasses. These have been delivered in a professional yet approachable manner and have always been relevant and very useful. The sessions are very inclusive and everyone has a valued opinion.
Amanda has gone out of her way to make Motus an excellent resource for local women in business, and I applaud her for that. She has empowered women to focus, and to strive to be the best they can be, provided the tools to do it and ways to chill out when things get tough. Amanda is always brimming with ideas, whilst welcoming input from any other group members.
I feel that Motus is now a group of friends, as well as women in business. The camaraderie as we stroll along makes you forget the ‘networking’ side of things, yet members are doing business with each other as well as forging friendships. My only regret is that I haven’t been able to make one of the social evenings, but hopefully, that will change in the near future”

Deborah Hoult, Virtual Assistant

“I’ve been to a number of MOTUS events now including netwalks and workshops and I’ve loved all of them. The group of women I’ve met through these events are really inspiring and supportive.

I’m doing some work for one group member and working on a really interesting venture with another of them – which is a great bonus on top of what I’ve learnt at the events.

The network also has an active Facebook group so the support and community is there all the time and it’s run with great energy and enthusiasm by the founder, Amanda McConnell”

Being a member of MOTUS has brought many benefits. I’ve met some lovely ladies who i’ve been able to collaborate with. There is such a wide range of skills and interests in the group that if you want help someone is able to point you in the right direction. I’ve also attended some great events that have been put on by MOTUS. Definitely worth joining this fab network.

Rebecca Norton, Director & Life Coach, Sense of Direction

MOTUS Women Entrepreneurs Network has been THE best support system I could have ever dreamed of as a female business owner.
It’s very different from other networks and I have made not only mutually beneficial connections, but also such fantastic friends for life.

Had a “MOTUS Moment” (its a thing, trust me) this week when I connected my ‘WHY’ (thank you Darren Buxton for your presentation at the MOTUS social evening) with an opportunity to promote my business at a conference in a couple of weeks. I was able to put the plan into action by calling a fellow member – how cool is that?! Love this group for their caring, sharing and supporting xx
