Introducing your Regional Lead for Essex

Donna Sharman

A thankful lady, married to my best friend, proud mum of two smashing kids and nan of my adorable granddaughter.

40+ years of work experience, mostly sales & marketing. I have been hosting Southend Buzz since 2018.

I work part-time with SME’s providing sales support, around spending time with my wonderful Hallie, and caring for my amazing, but elderly parents. Excited to be starting a new venture, using my events experience to create items to enhance parties and celebrations.

Donna says “I love the friendly & relaxed format. It’s great to welcome and support local businesses!”
