With nothing like it currently on the business scene in Haverhill, a new women only networking event is being launched in the town by local business woman Elaine Carr.

The quarterly lunch time meeting, called the Venus Business Circle, will take place at Haverhill Golf Club in Coupals Road, from midday to 2pm with the inaugural meeting taking place on Friday, April 4.

The focus of the meetings will be to offer marketing advice and support to women who are in business, whether they are business owners or employees.

There will be a guest speaker at each event to talk about a marketing related topic.

In April local image and style consultant Loraine Callow will be explaining the importance of personal branding.

She will also be sharing tips on how to dress to impress and advice on using clothes to improve confidence.

Elaine has run her own marketing consultancy, FlipFlop Marketing Ltd, since 2002.

She then took over the franchise for thebestof Haverhill marketing agency in 2010.

With a strong background in marketing and a passion for her subject Elaine explained the rationale behind the launch of the new group.

She said: “Women only networking groups have been growing in popularity and I thought it was about time Haverhill had our own event located in the town.

“The golf club is a lovely venue.

“It offers free and plentiful parking and with a wide selection of sandwiches and hot food at very reasonable prices is quite appropriate for a lunchtime meeting.

“With the upturn in the economy businesses are starting to feel more confident.

“They need to be equipped to take full advantage of the opportunities that are on the horizon.

“In my opinion knowing how to market is absolutely critical and we’ll be using the Venus Business Circle to help support local business women to learn how to market their companies more effectively.”

The event is free to those attending, however attendees will be responsible for the cost of their own lunch and refreshments, which will be payable directly to the Haverhill Golf Club.

If you would like to find out more about The Venus Business Circle or book a place at the first meeting on Friday, April 4 please call Elaine Carr on 01440 710158.
