Fiona Bridges – VIVACITY Social Media Consultancy
After 13 years working in City financial services communications roles I decided to free myself from the corporate politics and set up my own consultancy; VIVACITY.
I attended the Successful Mums Bexley Business Start-up Course to find out more about how to make this a reality.
The course was thought-provoking and insightful, providing me with the timely boost I needed to kick-start my business. We covered a lot of ground in just a few sessions and Jane answered all of our questions along the way, often encouraging group discussions to solve problems.
As a Social Media and Communications Consultant, marketing is part of my job so this element of the course was a refresher and I was delighted to be invited to share my expertise with the group on how small businesses can use social media as a marketing tool.
The topics most useful to me were developing a sound business plan and learning about financial planning – both are really helping me to build my brand now that I understand the fundamentals of what’s required to make VIVACITY a success.
I even secured my first client a week after the course finished!
We love to showcase our fantastic mums, who continually create their own paths to success. Read some success stories and hear about their inspirational new careers and business ventures.
