Free Online Media Training for East London Female Entrepreneurs

Innovate Her is a new EU-funded project which aims to inspire and up-skill East London based female entrepreneurs so that they become more innovative through the effective use of technologies. The project is delivered by the Tower Hamlets College and run in conjunction with the Women’s Business Centre at Newham College.

A number of free workshops and seminars run by expert business counsellors and successful female business owners are being held throughout November and December this year with more dates to be confirmed in 2011. Topics to be covered include SEO (search engine optimisation), e-commerce, pay per click (PPC) and social media.

To attend the workshops you must be a female business owner (or a male employee working for a female-led business) where the business is trading in Hackney, Newham or Tower Hamlets. You do not have to live in one of these areas but your business must be trading in one or more of these boroughs. The business can be a charity, a social enterprise or a self-employed operation.

Great networking event for young entrepreneurs!

I am really looking forward to opportunity to network with like-minded graduates and entrepreneurs at The Net Location’s Social Networking Party this Wednesday 27th October 2010 at Graphic Bar, Golden Square, London.

Finally someone has noticed the niche and taken the initiative to organise a networking event for young graduates, professionals and entrepreneurs in London. It’s been a long time coming!

An intellectual crowd, adventurous cocktails, delicious food, good music, a professional photographer and a magician are all promised to make the networking night one to remember.

Even better it is free to attend so for full details and to get on the guestlist go to or send an email to with your full name and occupation.

The party kicks off at 7pm so I look forward to seeing you there!

I am a CHAMPION!!!

Excited to see my friend Clement Marfo & (his band) The Frontline perform live for the first time we trundled down to Hoxton Bar & Kitchen and after a few hours wait (we arrived stupidly early) the back stage was packed out with eager fans and excitable women….always weird to realise your friends have actual FANS!

Their set blew me away. As a collective they are literally electric! Not knowing all the lyrics meant I was definitely in the minority but the CMTF stage presence is so personable I was dancing about with the rest of the crowd in no time.

My favourite track of the night was their fantastically energetic new single which I am totally in love with: CHAMPION!

Not only do I love the track’s positive wecandothis vibe, I love free running and the strength that shooting in black and white gives the video.

Champion is currently available for purchase on iTunes for a limited time. Click HERE to purchase and support the CMTF movement and the TALENT. 🙂
