Network Ireland and AIB have agreed to extend their partnership. AIB has been the official national partners of Network Ireland since 2013. As part of this partnership, AIB will work closely with Network Ireland and it’s 1,200 members as it strives to continue to be the network of choice for enterprising business women across the country.

The 15 Network Ireland branches around the country will also work side by side with AIB branches and business centres locally to promote the fantastic work being undertaken by Network.

President of Network Ireland, Helen Wycherley said: “This is such a great partnership we have with AIB and it has been growing strongly since we first joined forces six years ago. We really value the close working relationship we have developed with AIB over the years and the huge support they offer our members. We see the work that AIB is doing to promote female entrepreneurship and I believe this is a mutually rewarding partnership.”

Head of Business Banking at AIB, Catherine Moroney said: “I am delighted that AIB and Network Ireland will be continuing to work together through our long established partnership. AIB is a strong supporter of women in enterprise and we see our partnership with Network Ireland as a great fit as we continue to back female led businesses. Network Ireland is a wonderful resource for female led businesses across the country and with AIB’s presence across Ireland, we will continue to proactively support Network Ireland members.”

The theme for Helen’s Presidency this year is “Step Up”. She wants to help women all around Ireland to fulfil their potential by empowering them to ‘step up and achieve more’.

Helen added: “I see Network Ireland’s ongoing purpose as helping women to #StepUp. Our mission, after all, is to lead the way for ambitious and enterprising women, support the professional and personal development of women and collaborate with government, private and non-profit sectors to help women succeed. With the extension of this partnership with AIB we can grow together as an organisation in order to achieve our goals.”
