Jackie Barnett Consulting Limited Mobile Phone: 07821189650 Website: Website

Specialist in business strategy, improving business gender balance & developing women’s confidence.
I develop women, and businesses who develop women :
I work with leadership teams to uncover their unconscious biases that reduce company diversity
I coach women to be more confident & train them in assertive communication skills
I help business develop their strategy
I train people throughout an organisation to understand differences in male and female communication, leadership, decision making and people management styles. This removes gender bias to allow recognition of the value each style brings to the business and its bottom line. As part of this, I help people (male and female) recognise where their gender bias may be impacting their views of others & their decisions
My work is grounded in over 20 years experience with international brands such as Nike and Clarks shoes. I am passionate about helping women and organisations achieve their potential.
I am passionate about women having a stronger voice in the business world:
– Being heard
– Being respected
– Having influence and impact.

Phoebe Wedding Design Website: Website Website: Blog
About the business: We’re just one couple and their cat designing beautiful eco-friendly wedding stationery in the North East. And yes, the cat’s name is Phoebe…

Our mission is to create beautiful wedding stationery using the highest quality, ethically sourced materials that won’t cost the earth. We started out designing invitations for friends and family but realised there was a bit of a gap in the market for personalised and unique designs that won’t break the bank OR the planet. So we started Phoebe Wedding Design; to help those with a love of great design and the environment have the wedding stationery they deserve – guilt free! All of the designs and art are done in-house so are totally unique and inspired by the couples we’ve created them for (fictional as well as real!). We’re working towards offering even more bold and beautiful designs in 2020 as well as offering a digital eRSVP service – so watch this space!

About me: I studied Business and Marketing at University and have had a career in Digital Marketing since, working for some amazing brands and companies and earning a ton along the way. I’m almost as passionate about business as I am about the environment and sustainability and saw a big untapped gap in the market for eco-friendly alternatives to wedding stationery. All of our products are available on up to 100% recycled materials and we cut down on waste where we can, for example having postcard style (envelope-free) RSVP’s and a super efficient  production process. 2020 is going to be an exciting year for us – and we’d love your support!

Life and Business Success Coach Mobile Phone: 07972788619 Website: Website

Throughout my time teaching performing arts, my greatest pleasure has always from hearing about what all my students wanted to aim for in the future and encouraging them to take the first tiny steps to get there. And the biggest reward was always watching someone with no confidence blossom into an incredible performer.

That’s why I decided to use these skills to become a mindset, confidence and success coach. I still teach performing arts (I’m too much of a diva to give it up!) but alongside that, now I help magnificent women, just like you, to get clarity on their goals, whether that be in life or business, and encourage and empower them to have the confidence to go for them!

I truly believe that you can achieve anything you set your mind to with a clear plan and a strategy to overcome that negative mind chatter. You already have all the skills and confidence you need, we just need to bring it out of you.

My coaching courses give you support, accountability and strategies to help you overcome obstacles, define your goals and build the confidence to achieve what you really desire.

You only get one life – so let’s make it sparkle.

Independent Recruitment Agency KCR Solutions Website: http://www.kcrsolutions.co.uk

Having been in recruitment for over 20 years, my passion is still finding the right candidate for the right company.  I worked for a large national company for nearly 8 years and would have stayed had they not been less than keen to offer flexible hours.  But this gave me the kick I needed to start KCR Solutions with my brother Chris, which we have been running for 14 years.

We specialise in Finance and Accountancy Recruitment but occasionally assist with other specialisms.  We have built up a loyal client base which is growing all the time.  Once a client uses us, they tend to use us again and we get a lot of repeat business.  We have a great team of staff and love to assist with any recruitment needed. 

I love my job and even better, I have been able to work it round enjoying time with my children and being there for them as they are growing up; it has often meant working crazy hours at crazy times, but it has been worth it.

Retailer Finale Shoes Website: Finale shoes

I joined Finale in 2012. As the daughter of the owner, I have always helped in the shop and it felt like a natural progression to join the business full time when we decided to go online and expand our collections. I have learnt a lot from my mum who owns the business and I think we make a great team. I love my job and everything about fashion and customer service, despite having a degree in Criminology and spending the initial part of my career working with both juvenile and adult offenders I have always helped mum with her fashion businesses so it wasn’t too much of a shock to either of us when I changed career path at 35! As an independent shop we specialise in helping customers find the perfect pair (or pairs!)for everyday or special occasions this means my job is very varied and great fun. I have enjoyed learning all about social media, marketing and finance as I have taken on more of the business. I split my week between the shop and my office so when I’m not selling shoes I am working on all the behind the scenes stuff, managing our social media, our website and our paperwork.
