Women in Business Hull appoints new chair

Women in Business has appointed Karen Newton as its new chair.

Karen is the former operations director for Spire Healthcare and now supports small businesses in regulatory compliance and margin management. A long-standing member of the networking organisation, she says she is proud to take on the role at this pivotal time.

“The last few years have been challenging for Women in Business. During the pandemic, we shifted our systems, processes and events online so that we could continue our support for our members. Then thankfully, last year, we were able to restart in-person events and committee meetings – and it has had a really positive effect on our membership numbers.”

Women in Business, which supports and encourages inspiring decision-making women in Hull, East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire, now has almost 100 members – a number that is increasing all the time. Karen continued: “Change was needed but along with change always comes a degree of turbulence. 2023 is a year to reap the benefits of change and to concentrate on providing great training and wellbeing events as well as providing an opportunity for informal networking – and just having fun!

“I am looking forward to my year as chair of this incredible organisation and I am proud to be supported by an amazing committee and our members who I am looking forward to seeing throughout the year.”

Women in Business is a not-for-profit organisation that offers a blend of professionalism and sociability, providing support, friendship and networking to its members.
