Back to Work Marketing Brunch

So what better way to kick off September than with a Marketing Q&A over brunch. Plus, if you’ve been missing out on networking over the summer we’ll be encouraging conversations and connections in between questions. Read More

Where I’m Networking in July

I’m kicking off July with a trip down to Birmingham for the Entrepreneurs Circle pre event networking evening on Sunday 1st July. So really getting this month’s networking off to a head start. At the event today Nigel Botterill is sharing his 3 future trends for marketing. One of those trends is that conversation is becoming the new lead generation. Conversation is one of the reasons why I attend so many networking events – because it enables me to have interesting conversations with people. Meeting people face to face shrinks the distance and gets me closer to my potential customers in a way that can’t be done online, even with live videos and community groups with strong relationships, for me there is no better way to connect than in person. So if you’d like to meet up and have an interesting conversation this is where you can find me this month. Read More


Where I’m Networking in York in June

June’s networking kicked off with the Summer Social on Tuesday. We celebrated our Woo Hoo wins over Sangria and Summer punch (or Ginger Beer and Elderflower presse) and the fabulous Helen Drye from Silver and Stone Jewellery won a bottle of prosecco for her woo hoo of 6 years in business! (winner drawn at random by Lily Denniss from Foxglove Portfolios as part of her fundraising for a trip to Peru)

The open networking and socialising format worked really well, lots of new connections were made, strawberry scones by Just Jos Catering were enjoyed, hook a duck was played and a good time was had by all! So much that it’s been requested as an annual event!

The rest of the month I can be found… Read More
