About Us

Suzy Orr – Networker of the Year Liverpool Lifestyle Awards 2017

I am a fifty-something woman, I live near Chorley in Lancashire, and am married with a daughter, three stepdaughters and a stepson.  After almost 30 years working in very male-dominated industries, IT and Telecoms, I currently help my husband Ronnie, run our family UPVC business, Windoworld.  I founded  Unique Ladies Networking after missing the networking element of my career, over coffee with a friend, who suggested I should organize my own network!

At the time I’d networked for years, however, I’d become disenchanted with the business networks available locally to me. My vision was a network which didn’t cost the earth,  didn’t put you under pressure to either provide leads or expect you to present to a huge room of strangers, in addition, I wanted a location which was easy to get to, had great parking and felt comfortable.  During my time mixed networking, It became apparent that there was a gap in the market for a “Women Only” network, still a minority group, one which encouraged, inspired and supported women in business.  With that in mind in March 2015 Unique Ladies Networking was launched in Lancashire. Not long afterwards I was approached by some ladies from Bolton, asking if I’d do the same for them.  Unique Ladies Bolton launched in September 2015, followed by Unique Ladies Manchester/Media City/Salford in January 2016. Our third group is all set to launch in Preston on 15th September 2016.

Not long afterward I was approached by some ladies from Bolton, asking if I’d do the same for them.  Unique Ladies Bolton launched in September 2015, followed by Unique Ladies Manchester/Media City/Salford in January 2016. Preston in September 2016 and Liverpool, the 4th and final group launched in September 2017.

I am also in discussions about other collaborations to bring this format and a mixed group to a wider audience.

The format works. Free Membership, pay as you go, all-inclusive, so no restrictions on business sectors, the same venue with ample free parking, brilliantly inspiring speakers, I really am loving every minute of conquering the world with Unique Ladies!
