Hi, I’m Joanne, multi-award-winning author and blogger, living in rural Dorset with my long-suffering partner and our 3 children (and 2 cats but I don’t really like them #notafanofpets). When I’m not writing or networking, I am partial to a bag of crisps and a crime drama.

I’ve been organising networking opportunities since 2009 when I soon realised that in order to grow my business, I needed to network but finding events to fit around 2 babies was incredibly difficult. So I started my own. One of my biggest joys and passions is using networking as a tool for collaboration, health and wellbeing, alongside business development. I love sharing and providing others with the skills and/or opportunities to be a Networking Ninja.
