IN THE PRESS
Since moving to Vietnam, I've been to many countless networking nights but Women of Vietnam is by far the best. The monthly meet-ups have enabled me to expand my network with like-minded women across the city. WOV allows you to truly be yourself whilst connecting with the Vietnamese and expatriate community in Vietnam, something very unique.

My first time to Women of Saigon networking event last night at La Fenetre Soleil! Many lovely faces turned out, everyone was very friendly and nice to talk to. Nice venue with a piano man playing great music while people were chatting and having fun. I made friends with some great girls. Totally love the experience, highly recommend the event to any females looking to make more friends in Saigon or expand your network. Thanks, Women of Saigon, I'll join more of your events in the future! Xx

Women of Vietnam provides events which are unlike other networking events. In many ways, their events are more sociable, relaxed and welcoming and in social settings which I would go to out of choice. A WOV get together feels more like a get meet up with friends than a formal networking occasion, less forced. I recommend attending, not only for professionals and entrepreneurs in the city but also as a newcomer or long term resident wishing to meet more people.

I have been attending Women of Vietnam events for the past year and they never disappoint. The evening and brunch events provide a relaxing atmosphere to mingle with other like-minded and inspiring women. I recently attended the Mui Ne weekend retreat where I had the opportunity to make some great friends and participate in motivational workshops, whilst poolside and basking in the sun. I am continuously inspired by WOV events by all of the brilliant women I have been fortunate enough to meet. I would highly recommend any newcomers to the city or just women wanting to meet new faces, to join a WOV event because you will definitely leave inspired and smiling!

I attended WOV while I was in HCM for one month. It was such a great experience not only because I met wonderful people but also made fantastic friends. Organization was great venue and content, quite interactive and diverse so you were exposed to people/ women with different backgrounds professionally and personally. I truly recommend to attend any of the gatherings to meet interesting people, also thank you to Jess who is the promoter and organizer for being so kind to let me attended even by giving short notice, we had a great conversation about business where plenty of good ideas were exchanged so great place to find business partner as well.
