A FORMER life coach has set up a networking business group where children are welcome.

Claire Plummer will hold the first meeting of Networking with Nippers at the Bean Tree Cafe in Page Park. It is aimed at mums and dads new to business so they can share best practice and learn new skills without having to arrange childcare. 

She will host the meeting with Staple Hill mum and accountant Yarka Krajickova, who has a 15 month old son.

Claire, who has two children, aged five and 11 months, said: "I was inspired by the lack of support for mums and dads in business in South Gloucestershire so I looked for a networking group that did not charge a large price to be part of and specifically for people new to business. I could not find one so this is the reason I set up Networking for Nippers."

Claire, from Winterbourne, said she was forced to develop her own business to give her flexibility once she had children.

"I plan to help other businesses with their marketing as that was my job and help with relaxation and positive mindset as I used to be a life coach.

"We intend on having mini-masterclasses of 20 minutes where experts share their business knowledge. I will be hosting the marketing side and we will have mindset, finance, coaching sessions and photography sessions. Yarka, who is an accountant will be dealing with the finance side."

The first Networking with Nippers event takes place on Saturday February 24 from 10.30am-noon. Tickets are £5. For more details email claire_plummer@yahoo.com
