About us

Welcome to MPWR

If you are here then I bet you are a businesswoman looking to grow, both personally and in business! But you’re also a businesswoman that knows all about how sometimes, it can be bloody hard out there!  Often feeling overwhelmed, feeling unsupported, feeling a lack of guidance, and even feeling like you’re ready to throw the towel in?

Well if that is the case we are so glad you are here because that’s what we are all about!

We have created MPWR to bring together equally passionate like-minded businesswomen, so we can GROW TOGETHER! 

When you’re the boss, of yourself or within an organisation as a senior leader, we know it can often be very isolating, overwhelming and very challenging and more than often like a totally scary rollercoaster.

Welcome to MPWR

We’re thrilled to have you here in our community focussed on you, our members. We can’t wait to see what we can do together to thrive in business.

We created MPWR to bring you together with equally passionate likeminded businesswomen who are all here like you to support and help each other…and to GROW!

Our goal – to provide ‘the’ space for business women to connect grow and thrive, through community, networking and events.

We know that being an entrepenuer, working for yourself or in senior positions within larger organisations can be challenging. This community is all about getting you the support you need from other women to accelerate your career or business to where you want to go. Working together, we have got this.

Do you relate to?:

Well firstly let me tell you  – all that happens to most of us at some point or other BUT what we want you to know that we can help you with all this and more (and by we I mean our community!) 

Our community of like-minded businesswomen, get you! They too feel all that, or have at some point, and through sharing we can help each other. 

Have you ever noticed how you can always give others great advice but you can't act on the same advice yourself?

Having a community like this, where we support each other is absolutely priceless in helping you to grow, both personally and in business.

We all have low days but sharing them really does help to sort any issues you’re having or just make you smile again!

There is nothing better than sharing wins too! We want to be there to give you a pat on the back and congratulate you.

We all know nothing comes without hard work, it’s all about committing and ‘getting sh!t done’. As a group we hold each other accountable and help each other in doing just that.

Meet likeminded women

To achieve our goals in life we have to stay focussed, we need a plan and we need to act on it. 

Having a network of support around you is key to achieving your goals.  A network you can learn from, be inspired by and grow with.

No matter what stage you are at we are here for you and we know you will be here for us!

So what do you get out of being an MPWR Business Club Member?

Connect

Access our exclusive MPWR Community. A private, online network. A collective of businesswomen with a growth mindset. Who show up. Who are ambitious. Who have big plans and dreams they’re ready to go and achieve. A space to connect internationally, and locally. A space to ask for help and support, and to help and support other members. A space to form collaborations and make long lasting friendships.

Grow

Access our ever growing resource library including live webinars, talks, guides, workbooks and inspirational reading. All created for you, by members and external, industry experts. It's all about investing in your self development. We ask that our members commit time to learning. We give you the tools to grow, but only you can make yourself have the time to really do it.

Thrive

Online networking meetings. Networking with MPWR is a little different to what you might be used to. It's relaxed and sociable with no 60 second intros, pitching, business card pushing or dress codes, just lots of chatting and connecting with likeminded women and sharing what you do. We also run a series of Events, Conferences throughout the year and an annual Celebration Awards. Members will be invited to attend these as a guest or a participant/speaker/host.

We’re not afraid to say we don’t have all the answers and you shouldn’t be either. Asking for help is ok. Not knowing is ok. By joining our community you have a team, right there to chat to, to ask for help, to laugh with and to grow with.

2020 has meant we have had to adapt so much. Many of us are at home. Other imbalances have stacked up. Often business/work has had to take a back seat, looking after ourselves may have too,  because we have had to step up and do other stuff. Now, more than ever, we need a community. Somewhere to belong, somewhere where others get us!

“Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”
– Will Rodgers

We want you to get real value from your MPWR Business Club Membership – but to do that, we need you to show up and work at it. 

This is an investment. An investment in you and your business.

We ask our members to:

Once members get to really know you they will then recommend you as an expert, because they get you and like you. Every woman you meet has an enormous network of their own. Friends, family, colleagues, customers… they may one day need what you do and you want them to recommend you. This won’t happen if you don’t turn up.

We don’t monitor your activity, you’re not given targets or expected to perform in a certain way. But, if you don’t commit some time to this network, you simply won’t get results from it.

“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” – Albert Schweitzer

Our Team

We are so lucky to have this fabulous network of women around us with a shared purpose in growing this network. So in reality our team is all of our members. All of them contribute to the community by providing expertise and support when we need it. Thank you.

But anyway, here are the 2 faces you’ll be seeing a lot of and your main hosts in the community.

Tracy Burleigh

Founder & CEO

Tracy is the driving force and passion behind MPWR. When she formed the network in her home town of York in 2016 the goal was to provide a space for fellow business women to make connections, real connections.

The idea for something better, different, fun and exciting; to help businesswomen meet with likeminded businesswomen to o connect, inspire, create, collaborate, support and ultimately thrive.

And like all good things it grew and evolved, into the completely ace networking support group, of incredible businesswomen it is today. The purpose remains the same, bring women together to Empower each other.
