I’ve been going to far flung places to run Vistage workshops and now that I am back and catching up I thought I should share some of my experiences.
Insight, advice, news and chit chat
I guess the counter-question for this is: Why would the majority of businesses today either be doing something about social media, or otherwise mortifyingly aware that they aren’t doing it right/enough/effectively?
True, it’s often a waste of time.
My old views
I used to adamantly believe that everyone can learn how to do social media themselves, and should do some of it themselves for at least a month so that they can be more responsible if they outsource it. By doing so, they will be able to understand better what works and what doesn’t. I’d seen so many people hiring in interns and their teenage relatives, and with very little information imparted about their business, handing over the keys and the passwords to their social profiles.
On a cold Tuesday lunch time Lilly and I found ourselves enveloped by the warm surroundings of the luxurious Lacaze showroom. Both delighted to be spending a rainy afternoon (with champagne) learning about the art of Feng Shui.
I just rejoined BNI, after taking a 2 year break. For those who don’t know, it’s a referral networking organisation, with each group having weekly breakfast meetings. I joined in 2002, did 12 years, then decided “that’s it for me” and left in 2014. but visiting a new group in 2016 got me re-enthused. I am now a member for over a year at BNI St Paul’s – so let me know if you want to visit!

The opportunities for women in the UK to succeed in business have never been greater. While it’s sometimes hard to be anything but super modest and self-deprecating, I have to admit that there are things I have done that I am proud of. I have founded and managed a successful design and marketing agency, I travel regularly, and often give talks and workshops to advise men and women alike.
I am going to be doing another talk at Soho House – my 3rd this year. Mark the date in your diary – 21st October, 1pm!
And this time it’s about Content Marketing!
One of my big goals a year ago was to get myself into speaking at Soho House! They regularly run events, and I have been a member for 4 years.
Bravely, I put myself out there, and on the 3rd June 2016 I did one of their “Lunchtime Talks” on the subject “Extreme Twitter”
Hello! As part of my role here as the founder and CEO at TLD, over the years, I’ve run many workshops on social media (including Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn), blogging, and content marketing (which encompasses blogging and social media). These workshops are “small group workshops” and usually we have 3-5 attendees, so I can really tailor the speed and content accordingly, and give individual advice! They’re great and I enjoy them too. I have to, however, acknowledge that not everyone can come.
Here are 8 possible reasons why you won’t be coming!
