AIB supporting Women in Enterprise

AIB recognises the effect on communties of how business women sustain and grow their business

AIB is committed to supporting entrepreneurs and has run AIB Women in Enterprise Masterclasses and Growth Academies, where participants got the tools, support and guidance around the specific challenges facing their businesses. In the pages below, you can read some of the stories from the women who joined this programme and what AIB can do to support your business ideas and turn those ideas into actions.

Based on AIB’s own research findings we know women business owners and leaders have the same product and service needs as men however they have told us that they value and want coaching, mentoring and connectivity in a way that helps them access those products and services confidently.

  • Women are more impacted by role models than men.
  • Women engage with targeted initiatives that support their business growth & capability.

Great companies need great leaders

It is commonly accepted that great leaders deliver better (and in some occasions extraordinary) results but what’s the magic sauce to make good leaders great?


Putting networking to work

Business success is often less to do with who you know, than who knows you. No path offers a better route to success than effective networking. Networking is about creating a fabric of personal contacts to provide support, feedback, insights, resources and information.


Getting the most from mentoring

In recent years much has been made of mentoring and its role in successful business and personal development. Those in business, both new and established are regularly advised to consider how mentoring might help them not just survive – but thrive.
