Gloucestershire BIG Event

Thursday, 12th May 2022

Our spring BIG Event will be on Thursday, 12th of May 2022 at the stunning Stonehouse Court Hotel.

I am a Social Media Strategist, Mentor & Community Builder. I help businesses discover how simple it can be to make video on their smartphone and combine it with great social media strategies and tactics to grow communities and increase sales. Having discovered the power of social media and how it could create a super community that provided all sales leads to her floristry business 10+ years ago, I wanted to help do the same. Social Media is a great way of connecting people and businesses that you wouldn’t normally connect with. However, it is a crowded place and you need to stand out from the rest. I can help you do that. Having worked with influencers, everyday global brands and solopreneur businesses I would love to help you.
