Girl Tribe Gang Birmingham Launch Event

Girl Tribe Gang Birmingham Launch Event

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Birmingham launch of Girl Tribe Gang, where I met many inspiring, determined and incredibly kind women.

Girl Tribe Gang is a collective for women across the UK who work for themselves, with the aim to connectempower and grow the confidence and knowledge of its members by building a supportive and caring community of likeminded women.

As the event name suggests, this was the official launch of Girl Gang Tribe in Birmingham! The evening took place at St Paul’s House, a beautiful venue in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter – that in itself tells you that it was, in fact, a pretty nice place!

As I arrived I was immediately met with other Girl Tribe Gang attendees as we picked up our £5 cocktails(!) at the stunning bar, complete with pinterest-worthy overflowing-style plants and plenty of copper cocktail shakers – ideal for a blogger like me.

Girl Tribe Gang organised our own little room within St Paul’s House, which was also clearly designed with the intention of Instagram coverage. Very, very ideal.

We were welcomed to the Girl Tribe Gang Birmingham Launch with a speech by the ‘Birmingham Tribe Boss’, an absolutely lovely and incredibly inspiring entrepreneur called Rachael (check out her new business, Eva & Alma here!). She spoke to us about the concept and ethos of Girl Tribe Gang, how, why and when it began, and shared a wonderful quotation with us from GTG’s founder.

I wanted to create 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 to be the Girl Boss they know they can be, where they can growin confidence and their knowledge – a space where like-minded women can feel part of something special.

Also at the event was the owner of Illustries, an independent store which creates beautiful bespoke products ranging from books to prints. The brand kindly gifted us a couple of little goodies, each of which highlights the innately thoughtful ethos of the company.

Whilst the women at the event ranged in age, we all had one thing in common that meant we instantly clicked – the guts to work for ourselves, by ourselves. It was so fascinating to speak to women who have build their businesses from the ground up across various industries, from marketing to beauty to property to speaker coaching.

Unlike many networking events, the evening’s ethos was not solely sales-orientated. Instead, Girl Tribe Gang focuses more on the social aspect of the experience than the business side of things, which was so refreshing and created a warm and friendly atmosphere throughout the evening.

The event was, as such, a no-pressure opportunity to meet likeminded women with which we might build new friendships and/or business collaborations.

When the evening finished I’d had the chance to speak to almost everyone which is, of course, rare at networking events; throughout the evening we formed a small but powerful community of independent women.

Thank you so much to Girl Tribe Gang for such a wonderful evening – I really admire and support the GTG ethos.

    Wow what a fancy place. This is such an amazing organization, how unfortunate the we don’t have one here in the Philippines. If only I have the budget, I’d create one.

    Btw, I love your photos!
