I have lived in Watford for the past 20 years and been in business for about the same amount of time. I have run 2 very successful, albeit very different, business’s in this time, and what I do recognise is the importance of face to face networking…..

I started off my career in finance at the ripe age of 18 and in 2008….. as a single mum…..decided to buy a female only gym (I call it my mid-life crisis!)

I learnt so much and loved every minute but took the decision to return to finance in 2016 and picked up again as a mortgage broker, which Is a job I also love doing (just less physically demanding!!!)

I still help people, but in a different way, helping them to save money and look after their finances, instead of their health and wellbeing.

Call me old fashioned but face to face networking really does work! People buy from people…..fact!! I love meeting new people, you can learn so much from them. Its far more productive than just talking to a computer, typing a message, or trying to build a rapport over the phone.

Business Buzz is a great networking group, ran by friendly hosts who make the sessions fun and entertaining. Its informal and relaxed atmosphere means you will want to come along every month.


Our business networking event in Watford runs on the 4th Friday of every month, from 10am – 12noon.
