The GLASGLOW GIRLS CLUB is fast becoming the most popular and quickest growing members network for women in Glasgow and the surrounding areas. Beginning life as a singular Facebook group – providing a forum for Glasgow women to come together and share recommendations and advice, promote their own businesses and help each other grow professionally and personally – it has grown to incorporate a digital book club (GGC Book Geeks), a ‘Buy and Sell’ group (GGC Buy & Sell) and also a Bridal collective (GGC Brides) – all with the intention to make life in the city the best that it can be for members.

Now with monthly networking events and regular workshops taking place in collaboration with an array of experts from various professions across the city, the GGC also has its own Podcast and will launch as a Private Members’ website on the 10th December.

On the eve of the Glasgow Girls Club’s website launch, we thought it was only an essential to catch up with founder and all around girlboss, Laura Maginess.

“A GGC member is any gal from Glasgow or the surrounding area who want to be part of a super inclusive community.”

Active members of the group ourselves, we wanted to know how the idea came around and what really drove her to create such an engaging and positive business plan:

“The Facebook group launched back in 2016.  A few of my friends had their own businesses but struggled to reach their target audience without needing big budgets.  It was about that time that the bold Mark Zuckerberg was promoting the fact that Facebook was creating communities rather then keeping people from them and groups were becoming ‘a thing’.  So I spotted a gap for a group for Glasgow gals and the rest is history!”

The rest is history indeed! With over 11k members, Glasglow Girls Club has become the go to page for Scottish girl bosses in and around the city. Which led us to our next question… What can we expect from the website?
