Welcome to WISH London
We are delighted to welcome you to WISH London!
WISH has its roots in London – being born when Founders Nicola and Debra, both based in outer London, decided to start an informal networking group specifically for women working in social housing.
As the London Region tends to have members from all over the South East, we try to hold our events as centrally as possible – always within easy reach of a tube or train station. Our events are currently held in the evenings, usually starting about 6pm.
Our very first meetings over 10 years ago, were held in a small wine Bar in London’s West end and then we relocated due to increasing popularity, to a bigger venue near Waterloo. Initially based around informal networking over a glass of wine, the events – due to popular demand – quickly became more structured, often with guest speakers.
These days, our events are held in a variety of venues, many in the offices of Organisations who generously sponsor the evening.
We have had a whole variety of events in the London Region over the years ranging from ‘How to write the perfect CV’ and ‘Interview Techniques’ through to ‘How to think positively for success’ and the ‘Secrets of effective networking’.
The London Board is made up of a real cross section of women from the sector. Both public and private sectors are represented and we are very grateful to a number of other individuals who are supporting us on specific national projects such as the Schools Careers Project and also our ‘Ambassadors’ helping to swell the membership numbers in the Region.
WISH is now offering ‘two free taster sessions’ where its free to come and see for yourself how becoming a member of WISH can benefit you. We would be really pleased to see you at one of our events soon! Please keep visiting our page to keep abreast of up and coming events or register on the home page to go on our mailing list.
