“I was looking for a dynamic networking event for women in business in the Folkestone area but I really struggled to find anything suitable,” says Wendy Flanagan (pictured below) of The Holistic Home.
“So I rang FSB Kent to have a chat. I wanted a dynamic group of local business women who would all work together to learn, collaborate, network and enhance our skills and support each other in business.
“Running a business is extremely tough and I thought a Women in Business Brunch, as I had seen advertised in North Kent, would be a fabulous way to build new friendships and business relationships with likeminded ladies, while also learning new skills to help us succeed in our businesses. I was absolutely delighted when the FSB offered to support this event.”
Wendy now hosts FSB Women in Business Brunches in Folkestone at The Burlington Hotel, following a similar format established by our Women in Business Champion Deborah Turner (pictured below) a few years ago.
Each event allows for a good amount of time to network with other businesses, as well as learn from a guest speaker.
As ever, there is a lot of activity supporting women in business across the county.
