What is a Work On and why do you need it?
Working together to build a better business
If you’re running a business, when was the last time you stopped, took a breather and really took a ‘big picture’ look at where you’re going?
Are there any obstacles that are holding you back? Something that’s keeping you at ‘good’, when you could be GREAT!
Do you have an impartial confidante with whom you can discuss new ideas or who can offer those flashes of inspiration with the sentence ‘have you thought about…?’
If you’re struggling with any of the above, our “Work Ons” are here to help.
Our ‘Work Ons’ are about finding YOU time for your business, within a small group of like-minded women you have the chance to openly talk through one of your business concerns in a confidential setting. This will be a time to get inspired, get sharing, problem solve, get the creative juices flowing as you return the favour and assist others in their business too!
The ‘Work On’ will be facilitated by a trusted member of the Assist team.
All four of you have a set and fair time alloted to discuss YOUR issue, you take a little of your time on your background and the key question or problem. Then to follow your other three co-workers and the facilitaor is with you to work through this, sharing ideas, contacts, best practice and some real lightbulb moments can occur! To close you have a few minutes of your time to check them action points and ideas you have to take back to your business. The conversation is private, with some open and honest discussion. The aim to support one another! #WomenSupportWomen

We do try to ensure we have no conflict of interest within a group and our guests are not from the same sectors.
RATHER THAN JUST ‘WORK IN’ YOUR BUSINESS TAKE SOME VALUABLE TIME TO ‘WORK ON’ YOUR BUSINESS! We are here to ‘Assist’ that!
Let’s do this together over a cuppa.

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.

Having struggled for a while to find a womens network in Teesside, i stumbled across of the Assist events by chance. How happy i am that i did. Ann and the team make the networking fun and relevant, informative and comfortable. I've made several really good business connections, but mostly i've met some great women who i know i could turn to for advice, or even just to meet for a coffee. We all face the same issues within business and personally and the Assist meet's allow collaboration, suggestion, support and smiles. Thank you Assist x

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?
