It is my desire to create diverse, inclusive and extraordinary experiences that deliver the utmost value by connecting businesses with each other in the spirit of reciprocal growth and success.


An opportunity to network both online and offline, receive support & advice and foster the business collaborations necessary to gain new clients.


CNWM has been born out of an authentic intention to make a profound and lasting difference to the lives of as many female small business owners as possible. The true essence of CNWM embraces diversity and ‘daring to be different’.

Emphasis is placed on the creation of deep, valuable connections within a safe, engaging space inviting members to share best practice, support challenges and concerns, communicate alternative perspectives and collaborate to create mutually beneficial growth.

As a by-product of these intimate social experiences business is generated - through referrals, the forging of business alliances and through the establishment of trust and credibility.



There is an event for everyone – intimate, delicious lunches with a networking focus, larger evening extravaganzas with entertainment and a social vibe, and learning experiences with experts happy to share their specialist wisdom and insights.

These events are supported by two online communities: CNWM Facebook Group, which is open to everyone who has attended an event and the CNWM Tribe, for those who have taken their commitment to the next level and opted for membership and accompanying perks.

Your network is almost like a sisterhood not a power networking event. But to be honest I think it’s your personality as the leader that has set that warm, inviting tone to your events that makes CNWM so different.

Can’t believe I’ve been too nervous to come along before today. Loved meeting all of you and thanks for all of the advice you gave. I had such a fab time I didn’t even (much) mind the parking ticket I received!
— Jenny Shaw
CNWM is no ordinary networking group - it focuses on building deep quality connections that offer the best advice on how to take your business forward. Venue is amazing, food delicious and just a really relaxed atmosphere to learn and grow. Anyone nervous of joining / attending a networking group - look no further!
— Kiron Collett
Small groups of genuine people who are there to support one another rather than compete or sell. It feels very unique and special and as others have said, this friendly feeling radiates from you, thank you Sarah!
— Ellie Bowie
It doesn’t even feel like a networking event. It feels like a group of lovely women, all with similar goals in life, getting together to help each other out.
— Donna Hewitt
Just the fact that all your events are small groups is a HUGE plus for introverts. I usually find it overwhelming to walk into a room full of people I don’t know
— Viktoria Kuti
Most amazing networking group. You are made to feel at ease as soon as you enter the room and all those worries about how you will come across disappear! It’s like going out for a coffee and cake with your old friends and having a good old chat however here you come away with a list of exciting to do’s for your business and some lovely new friends! X

I have always been full of ideas and able to see the true potential in all of them, I have always believed in my dreams and my ability to bring them to fruition. This is what I want to share with others and CNWM is the platform that reaches women who need support, a sense of belonging and for someone to believe alongside them, encouraging them to confidently share their genius with the world.

Sarah Cook you have a magical touch that makes everyone feel welcome. You are authentic and that makes us all feel able to be ourselves.
If I can cry in front of all those women who I hadn’t met before its only because of the supportive atmosphere that I feel xx

What sets this one apart is the diversity of businesses, the stripping away of any falsity, and the common purpose of genuine interest in each other’s stories. Coupled with good venues, different choices of engagement and the complete lack of pressure to conform.

When I first received an invite for CNWM from Sarah Cook something was telling me that this is going to be a game changer for me and my business and I instantly knew I wanted to attend. It was the end of December 2015, I’ve just made a decision to go full time with my business and I was looking for a quality event that I could regularly go to so I can grow my network of business friends in Bristol, find trusted suppliers and expose my business to potential opportunities. I’ve heard so many good things about all Sarah’s events and I decided that this is the one that I want to commit to as an investment in my business. And the fact that it came with a lovely meal and wine was a brilliant added bonus - network and have fun is what I like! I attended the first and second even so far and I could not recommend it highly enough! Starting from the sophisticated venue, through delicious food to a brilliant group of amazing women that I’ve met - I absolutely love it all! And the results - WOW! Exceeded my expectations! Long story short, I got to know Sarah a little better and that resulted in her trusting me to rebuild her website. At the time of the second event, Sarah’s new website just gone live and she has given me a brilliant recommendation which resulted in 3 more ladies approaching me to do theirs too. Thanks to CNWM my business is growing whilst I enjoy myself making friends with great like minded people. I used to work for a networking organisation and I know very well that the power is in the network and I feel that I’ve found my network of choice at CNWM! Thank you Sarah for setting it up! Here is me btw:

I just wanted to say how amazing the CNWM idea is! If you haven’t attended then you must and if you have then make use of it and connect with those you met!
I really didn’t know what to expect when I came to the last event but I knew it would be fantastic if my gorgeous friend Sarah Cook had organised it! I met sarah a few years ago and I think it’s fair to say we’ve both had an amazing journey in life and business since then and there’s been many tears, laughter and Brie involved!!
Anyway at the last CNWM event I met some fab ladies who I’m sure I will meet again but I did make a business decision to meet up with the lovely Lidia Drzewiecka and talk branding (something that I really had to prioritise are sort ASAP). It was a pleasure to meet with Lidia and I can’t wait to get started on our plans for my website next month.
Excuse the long post here but I really just wanted to say that aside from a great evening and experience CNWM can be the perfect place to meet your next business contact and what’s even better is everyone is female!
Love Hali xx
