Katie to Conduct Marketing Talk for 'Mum-preneurs' at Networking Launch Event

A new BizMums networking group that supports and motivates women in business is launching at The Crepe Escape in Penarth on 9th September 2016.

Part of the national BizMums social enterprise, BizMums child-friendly networking events provide a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere in which self-employed women can share what they do and make new connections.

On-going training opportunities and business guidance are also provided, with each monthly meeting featuring a ‘theme of the month’ presented by a guest speaker. With practical themes like organisation, marketing, money and growth, mums can also learn valuable skills to take back and apply to their own businesses.

The monthly theme for the launch event is Marketing and Bull’s Director Katie, will be conducting a talk entitled ’A talk of 6 words’, which includes valuable tips and advice on marketing your business.

Katie (shown opposite with her two boys) is passionate about being part of BizMums and commented, “I know first hand what it is like to juggle being a mum to very young children whilst running your own business. BizMums has been an invaluable support network to me. I believe it is possible to have a successful business and a happy family life – and us ‘Mum-preneurs’ shouldn’t feel bad for that! I hope my talk will help others make their marketing even more effective.”

The Penarth group is the 12th group launch for South Wales. Meetings are also held in Aberdare, Bridgend, Caerphilly, Cardiff, Carmarthen, Llantrisant, Neath, Newport, Port Talbot and there is even a Polish-speaking group held in Caerphilly.

Michelle Childs (shown left), Founder of BizMums comments on BizMums: “In September 2012 I happily discovered I was pregnant with my second child. I was steadily growing my business alongside my part-time job, and taking care of my (then) 3-year-old son, Harrison who was also in nursery part-time.

“This flexibility meant I could attend networking events to promote my business but I knew once my baby was born, this would be difficult. I also knew I couldn’t be alone in this situation so I launched BizMums child friendly networking. The result was phenomenal and we now have groups in all corners of the UK. I couldn’t be prouder of how BizMums has grown.”
