This is really a thank you, to not just a business colleague but also a friend. I met Victoria at a 4N Networking group in Nottingham in the spring of 2010. What can I say apart from that she lit up the room with her gorgeous green eye shadow and magnetic personality. Her strong Yorkshire accent and infectious enthusiasm for business and all things ‘girly’ was such a welcomed surprise.
As soon as I did my 60 seconds and let the room know what my business was all about, her eyes lit up and she literally pounced on me! After a mad meeting conducted in the bar and her making me pose on the bonnet of my Porsche in the car park so she could take a photo for her boyfriend at the time! I realised that perhaps business and friendship could actually work.
Not only is Victoria the MD of a successful independent recruitment company, the founder of a fantastic ladies networking event based in Sheffield, The Perfect Pink Tea Party. She is also one third of the lovely ladies that are Bloom In Business. They promote a fun, creative and relaxed environment where businesses meet, learn and bloom.
She asked me to do a talk at one of their events and then rolled me out for evenings of style, pampering, shopping and swishing all over the North!
Her complete down to earth vibrant friendship supported me at the start of my scary journey into the world of starting your own business.
I did a video testimonial for Bloom In Business but after watching it and realising how much I need to go on a diet! I also didn’t quite say what I wanted to…
Thank you Victoria.
