Our Essex branch is growing
Leeza Morley, our marketing specialist and Facebook guru, gives us an update from our new branch of Business Clan in Colchester, Essex:
“The past few months have been a bit of blur to say the least! Moving house, settling in, meeting the neighbours, finding schools for my two children and oh yes, making a start on establishing the Essex branch of Business Clan in Colchester!
Having been with the Clan since it was founded back in 2014, it was a daunting prospect to leave behind the comfort of working together in our lovely office in Raynes Park, and return to working from home under my own steam. Luckily, I still have the full support of the London team, who are always only a phone call, email or WhatsApp message away!
So, with my business development head on, I have been out and about networking: meeting new contacts, like-minded individuals and influential women in business and attending a wide variety of interesting business networking groups. I was excited to sign our first Essex client back in August and I continue to work hard on raising brand awareness for Business Clan in this neck of the woods.
Fast forward to early October and our first recruitment day. Delia, Nicolle and Claire ventured out of London for a Business Clan road trip. We interviewed a variety of candidates for various different roles, all of which are flexible and aimed at people returning to work after a career break. It was a really successful day and so great to reconnect with my fellow Business Clan colleagues at the same time as finding new employees for the next stage in our exciting journey.
The beginnings of ‘Team Colchester’ are now in place, and all of us are brimming with ideas for attracting new clients. I have been asked to give a talk in the New Year about using social media for business for the Mums in Business Association (come along if you are in the area – 22nd January at The Nesting Place in Chelmsford. Book here!) so it’s onwards and upwards for Business Clan London and Essex!”
