KTS Women in Business is a collaborative project between three of the most renowned networking event organisers in the North West, who have been referred to in the regional press and by attendees as the ‘Queens of Networking’, the ‘Three Amigo’s’ and the ‘Backbone of Networking’ in Cheshire and Manchester.

Kirsty James, Tricia Peters and Sue France (KTS) each run their own networking groups comprising over 30 years of experience organising business and networking events. Between them, they have helped hundreds of people to connect and grow their businesses and they are responsible for thousands of pounds worth of business in the region. They do this by facilitating the right introductions and also by providing events, workshops and seminars to increase the knowledge of their attendees.

Although each of the ladies has their own unique brand and their individual style of bringing people together, their core message is the same. They know that, although social media is a fantastic tool for business development, nothing beats direct communication via events and building up a business relationship gradually.
