Girl Tribe Gang September Meet-Up @ Loft, St Albans | England | United Kingdom

We are the UK’s leading collective for women who work for themselves or who are aspiring to quit the 9-5. We are all about connecting you with like-minded women, empowering you, and helping you grow in confidence and knowledge, in a completely relaxed and informal way.

Girl Tribe Gang is a space where women can build each other up, where women DO feel connected, where they can feel they can collaborate, where they can be encouraged and empowered, where they can grow in confidence and their knowledge – a space where like-minded women can feel part of something special.

Our mission is to create a community for women who might have aspirations to work for themselves, who might be in the transition stage of ditching the 9-5 and for women who have already taken the plunge. Find out more at www.girltribegang.co.uk.

We’ve partnered up with Loft, St Albans, a contemporary British restaurant and bar set in a 600-year old building in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter.

The next meet up is happening on Tuesday 25th September at 7.30pm – 9.30pm.

We are offering free headshots for all members and guests from tribe member Stephanie O’Callaghan. The slots for the headshots will be allotted on a first come, first serve basis. Slots can be reserved in advance by contacting tribe boss Claire Morris at helloclairemorris@gmail.com

Stephanie is a photographer of people. She is based in Bedfordshire where she shoots a variety of lifestyle photography with a sideline in weddings.

If you’ve been thinking about refreshing your headshots, don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity!

Our TRIBES are mini eco-systems of support, of encouragement, of tips, of knowledge, of golden nuggets of information, of sounding boards, of women who are absolutely embracing #workthatworks and most importantly, of women who TOTALLY ‘get’ what it feels like to be you.

Meet ups are exclusive and strictly MEMBER ONLY. As a member you get access to the monthly member only meet ups, our #powerhours, your Tribe Christmas party, our virtual hub and our expert hub, plus you get discounted tickets to our bigger events and meet ups ALL for just £150 per year.
