I AM WOMAN expansion creates a dozen new franchise opportunities

I AM WOMAN, a largely successful business club network that was created just for women has announced that they have reached a milestone moment. The network recently opened up 12 new franchise opportunities. Interest in the business clubs is very high across the UK and overseas with potential destinations announced for Jamaica, Spain, and in the UK in Nottingham, Bristol, Newport, and Swansea.

The I AM WOMAN association is now looking for 12 female entrepreneurs with plenty of talent to help launch their new clubs around the UK. The women that are chosen to head the clubs have to have a passion to work alongside other women in business helping to support each other. They also will need to be willing to become celebrities as they help build their own reputations and business profiles by serving as the center for their own I AM Woman Business Club in their local city or town.

Cheryl Bass, creator, founder and managing director of I AM WOMAN stated, “We have been trailing the idea of franchising the I AM WOMAN brand for over two years and now is the perfect time move forward with this perfected model”, Cheryl continues, “We want it to appeal to a wide range of women, which is why we are offering full and part-time opportunities. This is a great chance to work with some like-minded women who all have their own unique ideas on business and networking”.

I AM WOMAN is a dynamic global network of business women. Supported by a franchise network of business clubs with a membership structure exclusively for women, I AM WOMAN is soon to expand across the UK, America and Jamaica. Founded by Cheryl Bass, one of the 100 brilliant Women in Britain for two years running and Speaker and Trainer of the Year 2012, I AM WOMAN is supported and recognised by The Welsh Assembly Government as a ‘Gazelle Fast and High Growth Company’.

There are already three hugely successful I AM WOMAN business clubs in operation; Cardiff, Cheltenham and Swindon. Since 2010, I AM WOMAN has created a distinctive brand, with business club benefits that optimise the development of women in business.

Women dominate the consumer market by 85% and refer 10 times more business than their male counterparts. This market can attract major advertising and sponsorship opportunities for the launch and your ongoing business club meetings.

At the heart of I AM WOMAN is the Aspire programme. Aspire is inspired by Bass’s award-winning research, How childhood development impacts upon entrepreneurial posture.

Aspire breaks the code of what makes people do what they do in business and equips women to remove blockages, allowing them to grow as supportive parents, partners and businesswomen. Aspire is recognised by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ilm) as an entrepreneurial development programme for women in business.

Elaine Godley, I AM WOMAN franchise director for Swindon stated, “the best thing is the structure, you know what to expect… you know when you come to an I AM WOMAN meeting it’s an I AM WOMAN meeting, whether it’s Swindon, Cheltenham or Cardiff.”

An I AM WOMAN franchise incurs an initial investment is £12,950 + VAT. This is an opportunity that fits around your lifestyle and existing professional roles, as you can chose to run your business club part-time and expect a return of £51,750 per annum or full-time and expect to see £104,500 per annum.

The franchise opportunities were announced at the South Wales Franchise Show which took place on Friday 31 January 2014 at the Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff.
