About Perthshire Businesswomen's Network

Perthshire Businesswomen’s Network, or PBN as our members and associates know us, is a business networking group based in Perth, Scotland for women carving out a career, building a business or promoting a great product or cause.

You will find yourself among bright, forward-thinking women at various stages of their careers and working lives.

Our members span the decades, offering you a great mixture of age, experience and mindful advice combined with the youthful enthusiasm and no-fear approach that comes when you’re just starting out. Skills are vast and cover many disciplines, industries and professions.  You will see social media experts sitting alongside financial planners; personal shoppers sharing a bottle of wine with accountants.   Members network with PBN for many reasons – some are trying to strike that elusive work-life-family balance, others have their eye on business expansion or a big promotion – together we are inclusive, supportive and driven towards helping one another achieve her aims.

PBN offers a dynamic and pro-active network that allows you to develop professionally and personally as you build your contacts, hone your skills and promote your business.  We encourage an environment of support and you’ll find a friendly welcome awaits you.
