Laughter really is the best medicine.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We fully believe in this and all our mingles are absolutely full of it! Yesterday's mingle at @themidfulkitchencompany was incredible for so many reasons; we stopped, we breathed, we all gave ourselves some time out but boy did we also laugh. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @Mirandagorebrowne & Gilly from @meditation4calm were amazing in their ability to create a real buzz & sense of belonging within the kitchen, allowing us to all feel at ease enough to let go and just. do. nothing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you to all our members for really being present in the moment, sharing and looking out for one another, it was quite a magical experience and we look forward to working more with @themindfulkitchencompany in the future.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thecollectivechichester #thecollective #networking #networkingwithadifference #chichesternetwork #chichester #westsussex #bettertogether #chichesterbusinesses #leaveyouregoatthedoor #igniteyourideas #sussexlife #networking #chichester #abouttime #solopreneurs #mindful #mindfulness #mindfulkitchen #keepitlocal #supportlocal #connectandcollaborate #inspiration eandbeinspired #independent #likeminded #thankyou #taketimeout #workforyourself #networkingchichester #worklifebalance

M E E T T H E A L P A C A S ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yes - Releasing Potential (RP) own Alpacas - gifted to them by a local farmer in 2016. Since then the animals have become an integral part of the RP family and the charity has created a new Enterprise - The Releasing Potential Farm. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's The RP Farm Enterprise that all The Collective's fundraising efforts and awareness raising is going to be focused on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With the help of kind donations in both time and money, the farm has been well maintained. However, the charity has ambitious plans for expansion to provide more students with greater opportunities to work with animals, as well as get hands-on experience of running an agricultural business.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We have lots of initiatives over the coming weeks to raise money for the Releasing Potential Farm. We hope you keep watching this space and get involved - it's going to be fun and it's so worth it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #alpaca #naturalfibers #alpacas #alpacafarm #wool⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #alpacasofinstagram #wooladdict #releasingpotential #charity #supportingyoungpeople #supportingmarginalisedyoungpeople #maginalisedyouth ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thecollectivechichester #thecollective #networking #networkingwithadifference #chichesternetwork #chichester #westsussex #bettertogether #chichesterbusinesses #igniteyourideas #sussexlife #networking #chichester #abouttime #solopreneurs #mumpreneurs #entrepreneurs #localbusiness

Hands up whose workspace looks anywhere near as neat & tidy as this?! Certainly not me although this is what I aspire to. A super clean, calming workzone that is actually also my happy place. A place I can go to to be present, to have focus and to feel calm.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tonight, we recommend our lovely members leave their desks /home offices / workspaces neat and tidy before skipping out the door / downstairs / up the garden path with a smile on their faces thinking about the wonderful Mingle they are off too tomorrow @themindfulkitchencompany hosted by @mirandagorebrowne and Gillian Higggins of @practicalmeditation.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We’re so excited to be treating our members to a morning of breathing, baking & just being. Hopefully you’ll go back to your clean desks with lots of practical tools and feeling a lot more relaxed and balanced.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thecollectivechichester #thecollective #networking #networkingwithadifference #chichester #bettertogether #mirandagorebrowne #igniteyourideas #monthlymingle #networking #chichester #findcalm #localbusiness #keepitlocal #supportlocal #connectandcollaborate #inspireandbeinspired #relax #likeminded #mindful #timeout #breathe #mindfulness #feelingzen

INT STRESS. AWARENESS WEEK - We know that many of you might spend a bit of your Sunday planning what's to be done next week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So we thought we'd leave you to ponder this Bruce Lee corker and hopefully we can all reflect on what it was this week that was actually inessential - and yet caused us stress and worry. Let’s hack away at that for next week, let it go, we won’t really miss it and hopefully we’ll all have a less stressful week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here at The Collective we are certainly going to give it a go!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thecollectivechichester #thecollective #networking #networkingwithadifference #chichesternetwork #chichester #westsussex #bettertogether #internationalstressawarenessweek #stressrelief #igniteyourideas #sussexlife #networking #chichester #abouttime #solopreneurs #mumpreneurs #entrepreneurs #localbusiness #keepitlocal #supportlocal #connectandcollaborate #inspireandbeinspired #independent #likeminded #emergingbusiness #quit9to5 #workforyourself #networkingchichester #worklifebalance

INT. STRESS AWARENESS WEEK⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When we read this proverb we both looked at each other and nodded “oh yes - so so true.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are so very often our own worst enemy, placing expectations on ourselves and striving to achieve what we THINK we should be or who we THINK society, our friends, our family expect us to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yet, when you turn your back on that expectation (real or otherwise) and just be you....amazing you...you feel a sense of freedom and your whole body starts to relax. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So remember, you are great, you are liked and loved, you are respected, you are cherished, you achieve, you are successful. Celebrate you! Be you!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Continue to strive but keep YOU at the heart of everything you do.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thecollectivechichester #thecollective #networking #networkingwithadifference #chichesternetwork #chichester #westsussex #bettertogether #chichesterbusinesses #leaveyouregoatthedoor #igniteyourideas #sussexlife #networking #chichester #abouttime #solopreneurs #mumpreneurs #entrepreneurs #localbusiness #keepitlocal #supportlocal #connectandcollaborate #inspireandbeinspired #independent #likeminded #emergingbusiness #quit9to5 #workforyourself #networkingchichester #worklifebalance

M E E T O U R M E M B E R S ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Introducing shiny eyed and always smiling Christy. Originally from Cyprus but now living in Chichester, Christy made her dreams come true in July this year when she launched @sebastianstormuk an online fashion company offering chic, exquisite, affordable clothing and accessories for women.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here's why has Christy joined The Collective?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Since becoming self-employed I have found it lonely not having anyone to bounce ideas off or to support you. I still work twice a week in a dental clinic which keeps me sane but I have gained a new appreciation of working with a team. I also just love hearing other member's stories and achievements. I find it very inspirational and empowering. I believe we can learn from every single person we meet despite their age as everyone is unique with their own experiences. I crave knowledge and growth and I was always told if you are the smartest person in the room then you are in the wrong room. I'm definitely not the smartest in The Collective and I'm looking forward to all the new adventures."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Christy - we are absolutely thrilled to have you in The Collective. You bring so much positivity and energy to our meet-ups and Mingles and we are right behind you in helping you achieve your objectives to do fully self-employed and collaborate with our other members. .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo @helencawtephotography .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thecollectivechichester #thecollective #networking #networkingwithadifference #chichesternetwork #chichester #westsussex #bettertogether #chichesterbusinesses #leaveyouregoatthedoor #igniteyourideas #sussexlife #networking #chichester #abouttime #solopreneurs #mumpreneurs #entrepreneurs #localbusiness #keepitlocal #connectandcollaborate #inspireandbeinspired #independent #likeminded #quit9to5 #workforyourself #onlinefashion #onlineboutique #onlinefashionshop #onlineaccessories

M E E T O U R M E M B E R S . It’s international stress awareness week. So what better time to introduce you to our member Louise Elgin of Guiding Minds. . Guiding Minds was founded by Louise and her husband Grant to help companies take a proactive rather than reactive approach to the mental wellbeing of their most important asset, their employees. . Guiding Minds brings CBT therapists into organisations and creates bespoke workshops which help shift perceptions, and challenge existing attitudes. “1 in 6 people in the workplace are currently experiencing a common mental health issue. I am passionate about a taking proactive approach to improving mental wellbeing and also promoting it. That’s one of my reasons for joining The Collective. I like the fact that as members we openly talk about the ups and downs of being a business owner and the impact that can have on your mental health. I also joined to take myself out of my comfort zone and meet other business owners and hear what they’re doing to drive their business forward.” Says Louise. We are delighted that Louise and her team will be running a mini workshop at our December Mingle for our members to learn from techniques to recognise and combat stress. Thank you Louise and welcome to The Collective! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . . #mentalwellbeing #mentalwellness #cbt #cognitivebehavioraltherapy #cbttherapist . . . . . . #thecollectivechichester #thecollective #networking #networkingwithadifference #chichesternetwork #chichester #westsussex #bettertogether #chichesterbusinesses #leaveyouregoatthedoor #igniteyourideas #sussexlife #networking #chichester #abouttime #solopreneurs #mumpreneurs #entrepreneurs #localbusiness #keepitlocal #supportlocal #connectandcollaborate #inspireandbeinspired

T I M E . There are many positives to the clocks going back, mainly that extra hour of light in the morning. Morning has been proven to be our most productive time and should always start with a routine to get us off on the right foot. Exercise is often a key factor, as is a good breakfast and perhaps a bit of meditation to remember what you're thankful for. . What does YOUR morning routine consist of? What time do you wake and what's the first thing you do? We'd love to know x . . . . . . . #thecollectivechichester #thecollective #networking #networkingwithadifference #chichesternetwork #chichester #westsussex #bettertogether #chichesterbusinesses #leaveyouregoatthedoor #igniteyourideas #sussexlife #networking #chichester #abouttime #solopreneurs #mumpreneurs #entrepreneurs #localbusiness #keepitlocal #supportlocal #connectandcollaborate #inspireandbeinspired #independent #likeminded #emergingbusiness #quit9to5 #workforyourself #networkingchichester #worklifebalance

So, the nights are drawing in and it’s that time of year when things start to become an altogether more spooky affair with Halloween just around the corner. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As many of you will be picking and carving pumpkins this weekend, trick or treating or perhaps raiding the charity shops for scary costumes. Here are a few Halloween facts which may help you make some sense of the madness: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ * Halloween, traditionally known as All Hallows’ Evening, is always on the eve of the Christian festival All Saints’ Day on 1 November. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ * Halloween originated from the ancient Gaelic festival, Samhain. It was a day to celebrate the end of the harvest season – it means “summer's end”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ * Historically Gaels thought the walls between the spiritual realm and our world were thin. In order to protect their crops, they would set up places at their dinner tables for good spirits and light bonfires to scare off evil spirits. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ * Trick or treating and dressing up came from 16th Century Ireland, Scotland and Wales. People would ask for food in exchange for a poem or song. People dressed up in scary costumes and impersonated the souls of the dead to protect themselves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #loveagoodfactor4 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’re looking for some fun pumpkin activities this weekend check out @slindonpumpkins and @roegatepumpkins to name but two. . . . . . . . #thecollectivechichester #networking #networkingwithadifference #chichesternetwork #chichester #westsussex #bettertogether #chichesterbusinesses #leaveyouregoatthedoor #igniteyourideas #sussexlife #networking #chichester #abouttime #solopreneurs #mumpreneurs #entrepreneurs #keepitlocal #courge #connectandcollaborate #inspireandbeinspired #allhallowseve #likeminded #emergingbusiness #pumpkins #halloween #networkingchichester #halloweenfacts

T A L K I N G ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of the things I missed most when I first started working for myself was having someone to talk to about ‘work stuff’. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Of course, I had friends and family I could rely on to listen and advise. But, I didn’t want ‘work stuff’ to dominate the conversation.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I had clients to whom I talked ‘work stuff’ a lot, their ‘work stuff’, enabling me to develop successful strategies and campaigns for their businesses. Yesss! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But what I sorely missed was the opportunity to talk about my ‘work stuff’. Working for yourself and running your own business is lonely and can leave you feeling vulnerable when you only have self talk to listen to. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Giving members of The Collective the opportunity to talk and share is so important to Helen and I. Which is why our members get the chance to meet up no less than 3 times a month. Plus we have our Facebook group The Inspiration Hub. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We don’t use our meet ups and mingles to pitch our businesses to each other but rather to talk to each other and listen to how things are going, what our plans are, what obstacles or opportunities have cropped up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So if you’re fed-up of listening to your #selftalking DM us to find out about popping along to our next coffee catch-up and find out how we roll at The Collective. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸 @helencawtephotography ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thecollectivechichester #thecollective #networking #networkingwithadifference #chichesternetwork #chichester #westsussex #bettertogether #chichesterbusinesses #leaveyouregoatthedoor #igniteyourideas #sussexlife #networking #chichester #abouttime #solopreneurs #mumpreneurs #entrepreneurs #localbusiness #keepitlocal #supportlocal #connectandcollaborate #inspireandbeinspired #independent #likeminded #emergingbusiness #quit9to5 #workforyourself #networkingchichester

M E E T O U R M E M B E R S ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is the lovely Helen Hope @helenhope07, a self-employed bookkeeper and accountant, who joined The Collective after popping along to one of our Coffee Catch-Ups to find out what we were all about. Helen decided to work for herself after returning from a four year stint in the Alps doing the accounts for a chalet company (#awesome9to5) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Helen joined The Collective to connect with other self-employed local people with the hope of supporting each other. She’s also hoping that some of her fellow business owners might be in need of her expertise (Helen - I think you’ll be in great demand!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Having gone self-employed only just recently, Helen’s objectives over the next 12 months include creating more of a brand for her business so she can build a strong client base with similar values to hers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And when she’s not doing that you’ll find Helen horse riding, skiing, cycling, dog walking and socialising.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Welcome Helen. We are so glad you decided to join The Collective and we will be supporting you every step of the way in building your business and brand identity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thecollectivechichester #thecollective #networking #networkingwithadifference #chichesternetwork #chichester #westsussex #bettertogether #chichesterbusinesses #leaveyouregoatthedoor #igniteyourideas #sussexlife #networking #chichester #abouttime #solopreneurs #mumpreneurs #entrepreneurs #localbusiness #keepitlocal #supportlocal #inspireandbeinspired #independent #workforyourself #bookkeeping #accountancy #accountants #bookkeeper #bookkeepingservies

This is one of our faves. Collaboration is such an integral part of The Collective's ethos and we literally squeal with delight when our members tell us they making plans to collaborate and work with another member. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ By creating a culture of collaboration at The Collective we truly believe our members will reap much richer rewards and benefits from their membership. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With collaboration comes trust. Once trust between members is established they are more willing to stretch themselves, go the extra mile and that's more likely to create amazing results.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The opposite happens when competition starts showing up. People are less likely to share and it's impossible to get to the best ideas when people don't feel safe and supported to share their ideas and work through thinking together.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are no quotas on how many people can join The Collective from particular sectors or industries. We are a community of likeminded, individuals looking to Connect, inspire, ignite, Collaborate and Celebrate (CiiCC).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Link in bio for more information on our membership benefits. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #leaveyouregoatthedoor #collaborate #makethingshappen #newhorizons #diversifyyourbusiness .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thecollectivechichester #thecollective #networking #networkingwithadifference #chichesternetwork #chichester #westsussex #bettertogether #chichesterbusinesses #leaveyouregoatthedoor #igniteyourideas #sussexlife #networking #chichester #abouttime #solopreneurs #mumpreneurs #entrepreneurs #localbusiness #keepitlocal #supportlocal #connectandcollaborate #inspireandbeinspired #independent #likeminded

Sharing the stage with other expert speakers, including the current Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern. I’d like to increase this area of my work and run some courses and workshops for people interested in learning how to upskill in the digital world.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Welcome to The Collective Kate.
