What is the WIGN?
WIGN – The “Women in Gaming Network” is an opportunity for women within our industry that wish to gain new business contacts through word of mouth. If you are an employee or a business owner the network offers the support and encouragement to each other through collaboration and the sharing of business contacts and opportunities to further your career.
The Opportunity to support, encourage and share new ideas in business will be key to the success of the WIGN along with our focus on raising funds for national and international charities the WIGN will also include Ambassadors, who will carry the message and form the basis of a committee to decide where charitable funds are used.
What is Networking?
Networking is essentially building a relationship and rapport with another person. In business we all need a solid group of people we can trust and respect. This of course works both ways.
Attending any sort of networking event (whether social or business) the principles are the same. People gravitate to people that they like and feel comfortable with. There is always some ‘connection’ of like minds which sparks the initial interest.
When business networking, you are often in a structured environment (such as a WIGN meeting) and are faced with new businesses and individuals. Often it is very quick to assess who may be able to help you at these events, with contacts or business particularly when you may be in similar type of business sector. Sharing clients could be a quick win for you both.
A platform where women can grow, inspire, empower, educate, and encourage one another, by sharing stories of courage and success.
