Philippa Constable

Philippa Constable - Women Mean Biz

Founded in 2007 by successful businesswoman, Philippa Constable, Women Mean Biz is the result of years of experience and research into how women can get the best out of business networking. Having been a member of business development schemes and networking organisations herself, Philippa realised women needed more than what was on offer. She’s developed a format that’s proved successful for hundreds of women, whether in business for the first time or with years of experience.

Having taken two start-ups from zero to success whilst also bringing up two children, Philippa understands the value women bring to business. Described as ‘a highly motivated visionary and ambassador for female commercial acumen’, she’s passionate about helping women in business succeed.

Philippa has successfully written and runs workshops and training in business networking skills, teaching people how to network with authenticity and get great results. She believes that most people don’t understand what ‘real’ networking is truly about, and is on a mission to educate people on how to network effectively.
