Why should you be there?

Anita has been to many networking events over the years; some formal, some informal and has taken what works, what people want from business networking and launched ‘The Business Lounge’. She was an Ambassador for the largest referral networking organisation in the world for over 6 years, so she knows networking works and that it’s a great marketing strategy for businesses.

*You will come away with new connections; building relationships is key to your success.
*You will increase your contact sphere with likeminded business owners, who may become your ‘silent sales force’ recommending you to their contacts.
*You will be inspired, motivated and supported by everyone in the room.

What do you need to bring?

Business cards and a positive attitude!!

About your host:

Hi, I’m Anita, a Business Coach, with over 25 years experience in Marketing in the Publishing, Retail, Advertising, Small Business, and Local Press Sector.

I’m an accredited Performance Coach who studied and worked my backside off to gain a credible diploma. I’ve not just read the books, I’ve lived it; I’ve run businesses for over 21 years. From business start-ups, through business growth, business change of direction, juggling business and family life often through adversity and massive curveballs. I walk the talk as an empowering, motivational, supportive Business Coach.

I have successfully worked with many businesses; Automotive, Health and Nutrition, Life Coaches, Beauty Therapists, Trades, Freelance Consultants, Family Businesses, Small Businesses, Start Ups and empowered the success of businesses who are stuck and need to be supported.

Working with a family business, which is now more successful, profitable and locally and nationally recognised in a good way after rebranding, target marketing, strategy and growth planning, staffing issues sorted, mindset work with the owner and lots of planning (there was more to it than that!)

I am passionate about helping other small businesses, start-ups and those making the leap from employment to entrepreneurship.

My mission is to inspire, motivate and support you to take action, live your life by your rules, embrace life, live each day to the max and to ultimately succeed in all areas important to you.
