Assist is ahead of the curve as usual…
You’ve heard of the traditional book club but “hear” you can listen to your favourite podcast or an undiscovered gem of a podcast and then get together for a discussion, debate and most importantly connection.
Hosted by Assist’er Hayley McLean of Anderson Barrowcliff LLP and Joanna Andrews of Charm Productions UK Ltd why not come and connect with others around a central topic that we’ve been listening to over the past 6 weeks. Unwind from the day to day stressors and indulge in some ‘me’ time.
Every 6 weeks’ish we’ll get together virtually (and maybe one day in the not so distant future face to face) to discuss the chosen podcast. A podcast which you can be sure will have topical issues at its forefront ; burning issues that affect the lives of women across the globe, be it in the realms of business, social issues or political.
We’re here to start conversations that matter about topics that matter to us and who knows where that could lead.

Since joining Assist I have been invited to events including Hidden Women of Teesside, where I had the chance to network with local business women and build contacts. I felt very welcomed and part of something supportive of where I'm at today and what I'm trying to achieve. I now have an experienced mentor for the next year to help me focus and build my dreams. Lastly I was invited to the Assist Christmas meal which was amazing as being self-employed and a small grassroots organisation, it can get lonely so I was grateful for the opportunity to connect with other women feeling the same way and trying to achieve great things.

I found Assist through a love of books and a desire for personal development but what I discovered was so much more. Whatever you come to Assist for it will benefit all aspects of your life; personal, professional and community. It is positive action for women on Teesside to support and empower each other and most importantly, to thrive. Why would you not want to be a part of this?

Assist is a great place to meet, connect and collaborate with businesswomen from across the Tees Valley. It's welcoming and informal atmosphere for networking, combined with the diverse range of business topics it addresses on behalf of its members is both interesting and informative. This winning combination means i learn something new each time i attend and its why i keep coming back.
ASSIST is just the most wonderful organisation. Filled with decent, powerful, creative, useful, intelligent and interesting people. And, the networking meetings smell so much better than normal ones :)
