For women who Rock their Role in work and life

And a Jelly is born

Hemel Hempstead Jelly

Today the Hemel Hempstead Jelly was born.

Six of us came together: freelancers, homeworkers and those who own small businesses to work together in a simulated office environment to beat the isolation of working on your own.

The event was a hit, it surpassed my expectations.  Even though we were mostly a group of strangers we found commonalities, shared experience and knowledge and ate delicious cake supplied by Little Blue Bakery.

There was a coach, an educational consultant, a women’s network leader, a solution focused evaluator, a web designer and me.  An unlikely combination with no pressure to sell or network with anyone in the room.  One of the Jelly members called it gentle networking which I think summed it up beautifully.

We enjoyed it so much, we are going to do it again.

David Tooley Business Editor at Johnson press will be featuring us in the local business news, so watch this space for his article.

So here is advance notice that we will be running  a Jelly once a month at the South Hill Centre.

Join us, we will contribute a small donation for the space which The South Hill centre  kindly contributed free of charge at the first meeting,  £5 per person and we give an hour of  our time in a skills swap to support the unemployed, I am sure we will learn as much from them as they will from us.

The sun is out and the Jelly is firm, what more could I ask for!!
