“If you haven’t attended a Coffee & Cake Networking event yet, I urge you to book on. Michelle has pulled together a great group of local business people, making networking an absolute pleasure. The experts are varied and interesting and the Q&A style, ‘chaired’ by Michelle makes for a stimulating discussion. And all with a large helping of delicious cake!” Deborah Ogden, My Style Confidence
“Networking has been key to building my business and Michelle’s events are always well-attended, relaxed occasions that allow you to develop relationships.” Sarah Gathercole, Mosaic Virtual Office/The Office Fixer
