I’d like to say a huge thank you to Laura Morris & Stacey Calder for organizing The Networking Mummies National Recognition Awards on Saturday 29th March 2015 in Birmingham. The event takes six months to put together and recognizes the hard work and dedication of Mums & Dads in small business across the UK.
Over 500 nominations were received this year, 13 finalists went through in the South and 5 award winners out of the 10 categories. Huge congratulations to everyone.
I was lucky enough to win a special award, ‘Outstanding Contribution Award 2015’ for the work I do, so I’m hugely grateful to everyone who has supported me, and the groups I run. I’m not one to stand tall and ‘blow my own trumpet’ so this award particularly means so much to me for the work I do supporting others in small business. I love it though, the recognition is amazing, but I’m privileged to do what I love helping people, working from home around my family.
I love networking with other business Mums, and within my own business, have set up a special support group incorporating affordable business coaching and brainstorming especially for Mums in Business called the EMPOWER programme, where mums can access resources online or locally in group settings to gain support from like-minded entrepreneur’s, and a free online group to chat and share knowledge. You can join the free support group here: CLICK HERE
