The Women’s Business Club was founded by Angela De Souza who wanted to set up a business network that she would like to attend where she felt comfortable being herself and accepted as a woman in business. From the very first event in January 2013 to today the club has stayed true to it’s calling to serve business women and supporting them in their growth and success whilst encouraging feminine leadership. Find out more about our awesome team below.

Angela De SouzaAngela De Souza
Managing Director
Angela’s passion has always been to bring out the potential locked away inside of women and to offer practical training to women in business and in life. This passion and her wealth of experience, successes and many failures, has grown into what we now know as the Women’s Business Club. Angela is guilty of squashing as much as possible into her diary and also loves kittens and often has a few climbing up her leg in the office.

He also loves cats!
