HEADLINERS ANNOUNCED by me on our Social Media 5th MAY 2015 -

see local press!

Purley Festival launched in 2011 and finished with a full day of fun and music of all genres.

In 2012 it grew into a much larger festival, finishing with a whole weekend and both a music and dance stage, acoustic tent, dedicated children’s area and much more. It attracted over 6000 visitors.  In 2013 we had thousands attend and a glorious sunny weekend packed with kids activities, sports activities and, of course, lots of great music. In 2014 we managed to survive torrential rain for several hours on both days, and it was still a great success and fabulous festival.  The new children’s area was fantastic and the free circus skills and older kids activities really enhanced the festival feel.

Purley Festival is a week of activities for all ages and interests, in and around Purley, near Croydon, Surrey followed by

a Festival Finale weekend. The finale showcases local music and dance, stalls, businesses, charities, entertainment and more on the Rotary Fields between Purley and South Croydon. 

I’m Head of Social Media and input into marketing and other areas of the festival.  I’ve been on the committee for Purley Festival since it started. If you would like to get involved in the festival, please do get in touch.  There are opportunities for clubs, businesses and local people to get involved, promote what they do, advertise and sponsor activities and the whole festival!

Feedback from previous workshops:

”Thank you for a great Facebook/Twitter workshop - I highly recommend this to all SME’s.”

Justine Lawson, AMK Gatwick Ltd

“Slowly starting to get to grips with my Facebook page, still lots to learn. Wendy's course on it (Get Better Coaching) was definitely worth the investment.”

Croydon Tweetups

& Steph Darkes from Dot Social

Next meeting, Weds 20th May at Matthews Yard, Croydon from 7.30pm.  Join or visit the Croydon Group here and to see more details.

There are plenty of business networking events in Surrey and Croydon so this is an informal opportunity to meet up socially to actually come together and meet up in person.

FREE Digital training for Surrey Women

SurreyWISE, a funded project enabling 100 women across Surrey to become more digitally confident.  Workshops ran from January into March 2015.

Working with Penny Power OBE, as one of the Digital Coaches, I covered the Bletchingley area in Surrey, running a series of workshops in Nutfield covering LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and more.

The success of these workshops has been immense with candidates getting jobs, promotions and new business with their new found confidence and knowledge....

“It has far superseded anything I was expecting from the course. Yes I have learnt lots of great things about Facebook and Twitter but more importantly than that I have grown in confidence and feel empowered.”

“I'm from Wendy's Group.  The best part is the opportunity not just to learn about social media, but to experiment with making it work for our businesses in such a supportive environment.  Wendy has given me sufficient knowledge to enable me to feel confident in exploring the different social media opportunities, and to work out what would work best for my business.”
