Guilt Free Networking for Mums
As some of you may know, I’m also the Branch Leader for Hampshire Networking Mummies, part of the Networking Mummies UK Ltd. We are an award winning networking group in Hampshire where Mums in business can come together, and support each other, share referrals and grow their confidence in running a successful small business. Our Networking Coffee Mornings are Free, and Children are welcome into our informal settings. Today we ran a new style of Networking in Hampshire, called Guilt Free Networking. We ran the coffee morning at The Three Bears Play Cafe in Woolston. We welcomed many different businesses, run by fantastic Mums, who balance their business with their home life. This gave the opportunity to let the children play safely next to Mum, while she made new contacts, and created a support network to further her own business venture.
It was great to see regular members, Pauline Grant & Jane Corfe Utility Warehouse, Jane Rudd – Bizzy Bodyz, and to welcome new members – Julie McNaught The Prezzie Cake, and Anita Curran – Curran Bookkeeping just to name a few of our 20+ ladies who attended today.
Networking Tip: Follow up after the meeting, email your new contacts to say hi, to share your links, or to ask to hear more about their business, or in our case, we follow up within our Facebook support group. Click here to join us. (no membership or joining fees!)
Business Mum of the Month, Jane Corfe of Forever Living showcased her products, and we took the opportunity to network informally for the rest of the morning. Some Mums may lack confidence at the thought of a formal Networking meeting, and so the Play Cafe was the perfect venue to welcome those who are perhaps new to networking or returning after having children.
We also run affordable business workshops to help our Mums to increase their confidence and skill set to take their business to the next level. Our next workshop will be focusing on using Twitter effectively for Business. We have a few spaces remaining on Thursday 14th March 10:00-12:00 at The Eastpoint Centre, Southampton.
