Welcome to Six Degrees

A network for like minded women to connect, grow, & create opportunity

The aim of Six Degrees is to create a community where like minded women can connect for mutually beneficial purposes.

Open, friendly and driven by a desire to envelop its members in a collaborative environment, Six Degrees offers a confidential space where relationships can be built, nurtured and enjoyed. Every month we host online and in person events, so whether you’re mingling over a croissant or listening to an inspirational speaker in a swanky venue, Six Degrees offers a confidential space where relationships can flourish.

Our philosophy is to create a network that is supportive, inclusive, balanced, authentic and collaborative and one where the community helps build the culture and direction of the group.

Like the sound of what we have to offer and feel you’d be a great fit? Are you keen to meet our friendly community? We’d love to hear from you.

  • Six Degrees is my absolute favorite networking group in Exeter. If you’ve been to one of their events you already know – but these ladies take it to the next level. Before Covid they organised such a fun event at The Pig and it was the BEST networking thing I have ever been to in my life. The Pig is a super swanky place and it felt like a fun party (complete with delicious snacks) rather than your standard corporate thing.

    Six Degrees is a membership community that offers the most supportive spaces for women in business – it’s inclusive, collaborative and most of all FUN. There is nothing more exciting to me than a room full of business women and their ideas, knowledge and perspectives and you always walk away from a Six Degrees event with a new little nugget of knowledge from your conversations.

  • “Before moving to Exeter 6 years ago, I worked in London as an editor on a leading homes magazine. Six Degrees came along just at the right time. As a newbie freelancer, predominantly working from home in a new city, I have really valued the opportunity to get out, network and meet a wide range of inspiring and like minded women who are passionate about their careers, looking to expand their network, collaborate, share ideas and most importantly, support each other.

    And the best bit? The Six Degrees events take place in the most wonderful venues in and around Exeter. From the new cocktail lounge at No. 5. on the Cathedral Green to The Pig Hotel in the Otter Valley. Devon is a vibrant place to live and work and I’m excited to see the Six Degree network expand and opportunities for women in business unfold.”

Why we exist

Meeting

We’re all busy people, but we promise our events will be worth bumping off another mediocre networking event for! From private dinners in unusual places where we can converse in confidence, to chatting away over coffee, we make every effort to make our events feel special. Face to face connections can be enjoyed in abundance with a minimum of two events a month to choose from (we do like to spoil you!).

Connecting

Six Degrees is all about helping its members grow, whether that’s on a personal level or in a professional capacity. Key to our culture is a willingness of Six Degrees members to be generous and abundance-minded – whether it’s giving newbies an enthusiastic welcome to help make sure they have the very best experience at the club, going that extra mile to make introductions or being willing to indulge in collaborations, it’s all about the connections we make and help create.

Encouraging

Offering sincere encouragement to the membership community is something really valued at Six Degrees. Running your own enterprise or being involved in business at a high level doesn’t come without its hurdles and challenges, but what can help make all the difference is being able to access a support network from time to time.

Investing

Another important element to the group is bringing business opportunities to the table. Whether this is something you’re hoping to get off the ground and you’re hoping to raise investment, or you know of other entrepreneurial opportunities that may benefit the membership community, the Six Degrees Investors Circle would love to hear about it.

About us

We believe that the majority of women feel frustrated and uninspired with traditional ‘networking’. Feeling underrepresented, like outsiders, and deflated from the experience. Our mission has been to create a community where like-minded women can connect, grow, and create opportunity – a place where everyone is encouraged to reach their full potential; professionally and personally. Our network is supportive, inclusive, balanced, authentic, and collaborative. 

We guarantee you’ll feel inspired, heard, and seen – like you’ve found your ‘tribe’. 

We’d love you to join us! 

Our events

We obsess about putting on great events and go the extra mile to make sure the time you’re investing in yourself and the community is worth your while. Whether it’s one of our informal breakfast events or a sparkling evening soiree with one of our keynote speakers, you’ll come away feeling energised, connected and inspired.
