The network for women in insight and marketing

We are a group of women in insight and marketing roles. We’re freelancers, agency people, client-siders and everything in between. We believe in sharing our experiences, supporting each other and learning from each other.


“The spirit of the group is to foster a sense of inspiration, where we use each other’s perspectives and experiences to stimulate our thinking”

Louise MClaren / &Thrive Founder



Our Events

We host regular speaker events and meet-ups in London, Leeds and Manchester.  Our meet ups are informal and fun with the aim of helping women gain inspiration and support one another.  Our events stretch across a variety of topics that we know are important to women - from career progression to confidence in the workplace to juggling work with having kids.
