Community Membership

Welcome to the Tabono Community

It doesn’t matter how ambitious you are. How focussed you are. Or how much you excel in your field. As business owners, we all need people around us, whether you call them a team, a community, a support group or a network. Our approach to business networking for women – The Tabono Community – was created for exactly this reason.

Running a small business on your own can be a real challenge. A roller-coaster. It can be lonely. Perhaps you’re not sure who to turn to when you’re stuck or when you need support. Maybe you’re in need of someone to talk to and to bounce ideas around with. Sometimes it’s simply about connecting with someone who’s been there. The right community can support you with all of these things.

As well as providing support for business owners, our approach to business networking for women also facilitates connection and knowledge sharing. Our community provides a place for women to seek practical support and technnical tips when they’re stuck or need expert advice. Referrals and collaborations are made naturally and organically – not through enforced structures or requirements.

Finally, Tabono is designed for women to be their authentic selves. As such, we don’t operate any sort of professional lock-outs or restrictions. Why? Because we believe that every business woman is different and deserves to be able to access the connections and opportunities that Tabono can provide. Equally, we believe that every business woman is unique, and even though two people have similar businesses, how they run those businesses, and the way they interact with their customers, is completely different.

In short, if you’re a woman running her own business, you’re welcome! All we ask is that you’re committed to creating a business that you love.

It’s a constant support system mainly due to the variety of communications, with a real mix of business and personal chat plus it has a real sense of sisterhood.

  • A weekly structure, designed to support you to make progress with your professional and business-related goals, and provide accountability for those who wish
  • A weekly opportunity to promote your business
  • An opportunity to share ideas, get help with business challenges, and gain feedback from your peers.
