The Bees Knees Business Club CIC supports local women in business as valuable contributors to the local economy.

The Bee's Knees Business Club was founded in 2018 by Chloe Peters & Emma Curzon, it is known as a well-established and popular female networking group in the area and has welcomed hundreds of businesses.

Emma has since pursued a fancy job in London and has stepped back from The Bee's Knees. In 2022 we transitioned to a CIC (Community Interest Company). The Bee's Knees Business Club CIC will be known as 'The Bee's Knees' and is a not-for-profit organisation run by three directors: Chloe Peters, Bekka Prideaux & Kate Marriott (meet our management team).

''We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future and can change the world''
