Women entrepreneurs who felt isolated during the lockdown were invited to take advantage of a new networking group.
Grace Appleby, 23, has always been determined to work in marketing in Norwich and new networks would be the key to unlocking the market.
So she started the Norfolk Women’s Marketing Network.
She said: “The Norfolk Women’s Marketing Network was an idea I came up with after working in-house at a company and spending six months as the sole ‘marketing brain’.
“I found the experience to be a bit isolated and lonely if you don’t have a support network.
You can also watch:
“I saw that there was a need for a community where like-minded people could discuss ideas and share their experiences with each other.”
She added, “Marketing is constantly evolving. There is undeniable value in having peers to ask questions and share ideas.
She added, “Being a woman in any industry comes with its own challenges.
“As women, we can relate to the experiences of others in ways that our male colleagues cannot, despite their best intentions.”
NWM Network now hosts monthly networking events and social gatherings in Norfolk, with the common values of: Connect, Share and Empower.
Events will include women’s conferences and skill-sharing sessions for all in attendance.
The group also hopes to create a community blog through the website where women can submit articles on topics they are passionate about.
The organization is only for women, however, it welcomes anyone who identifies as female or female.
And as long as people have an interest or are working in marketing, they are welcome to join the community.
All of the company’s social media accounts can be found by searching for “Norfolk Women’s Marketing Network”.
