Business programme for women gets media savvy

April 15, 2015 2:56 pm

Women Who Do trading event

The next ‘Women Who Do’ networking event is set to provide women in business the opportunity to meet up with friends and contacts, as well as the chance to listen to some inspirational speakers with ideas on how to make the best use of social media and how to become more influential.

Guest speakers Catherine Simpson from the E Business Club and Susan Ritchie, founder of You Time Coaching, will be giving delegates from Ashfield and Mansfield top tips on how to raise their professional and personal profiles.

Catherine Simpson will deliver a talk on ’10 good reasons why your business needs to keep up with social media’.  Up until four years ago, Catherine  was totally against social media, as she didn’t see the point of it. However, after starting her own marketing consultancy, she realised she had no option but to be on social media, both for herself and her clients. Now she is hooked.

Susan Ritchie started her business on her return to the UK from Borneo, where with her young son, she had to settle into a new culture, make new friends and build a new life from scratch. Susan will share what she learned about being visible, making herself heard and harnessing an inner strength and resilience, both personally and professionally.

The event will take place at the Summit Centre, Pavilion Road, Kirkby-in-Ashfield on Friday 24 April from 9.30am – 2pm. Lunch will be included. The ‘Women Who Do’ programme offers free, expert support to all women across Ashfield and Mansfield, who want to explore the possibility of working for themselves, or pursue a new business idea and develop enterprise skills.

Regeneration Manager Paul Thomas said: “We hope that women in business, or women with business aspirations will join us for what promises to be an enjoyable opportunity to make new contacts and take away some great ideas and advice. If you want to find out how to make social media work for you, or how to put yourself forward in both your personal and professional life, sign up now for this enterprising event.”

To register for the event, email  or telephone 01623 463165.
