Yesterday lunchtime I headed out to Broom Hall Country Hotel for the Wayland Women in Business Christmas lunch. I’ve been a member of the Network since it started way back in 2006 and always enjoy the chance to meet up with local women running an extremely diverse range of businesses.
Yesterday was no exception!
Our inspirational speaker was Jane Richards, who also helps run the network, and even though I have known Jane for many years I had no idea about how she started out and her motivation behind her now very successful soft furnishing and interior design business. During the lunch I sat and chatted to Sharon Pomeroy of Zigwagz who makes extremely glitzy dog collars. Her collars sell in Harrods and the publicity that she has received in the press and on the television made many of us green with envy!
As always with the Network meetings the event featured displays from several businesses – these included Jane Richards Interiors, Gone Crabbing, The Body Shop at Home and Catherine Downes Jewellery. I was really thrilled to win a prize in the raffle of a pair of Catherine’s gorgeous earrings which you will see below – I’ve a feeling I will be going back for more!
