The Spotted Dog Flower Co.

What are the main reasons of you joining our network?
After working in an office environment for many years, surrounded by people, the move to self-employed was quite a leap. Most of my day is spent working entirely alone, and whilst that has many advantages, I really missed the opportunity to talk, bounce around ideas and learn new things. Joining the network has introduced me to a wide range of people from all working backgrounds and I really appreciate the opportunity to get together and also that there is always someone to listen outside of meetings too.

How has MNFW helped you?
I have learned lots of useful business information from the excellent range of speakers on topics from banking to social media and have also met lots of people who are interested in what I do and have become customers and friends. It also gives the opportunity to engage in practising public speaking in a non-threatening welcoming environment.

What do you like most about our group?
Its very friendly and welcoming to everyone, those who attend have a wide range of business backgrounds and there is always someone to talk to. Relevant speakers are featured and the meetings are on Mondays, my admin day, so a guilt free trip into town. I also get the chance to talk about and promote my own business and that can’t be bad thing.

What would you like to see more from MNFW?
I’d like the group to continue to encourage the women of Doncaster and surrounding areas to build strong business skills to develop and support their businesses and each other.
