I have been networking with the Athena Network (females only) and it has been invaluable for my business. I agree with Suzi that it is about relationship building and finding out about others. Don’t see it as a chance to talk (solely) but as a chance to also listen. Build your network of contacts, add value and be memorable. The Bob Burg series of books (including Endless Referrals) covers off networking very well. Worth a read.

In terms of events to go to, I recommend starting with your local Chamber of Commerce and your local branch of the FSB. Then look at female only ones if they apply (The Athena Network) as well as industry specific ones like the IoD, CIPD, CIM etc. There are many of groups out there so visit a few and see what is right for you in terms of formality, time of day, price, target audience and so on. Good luck!
