Women on their Way (WOW) Awards

Friday, February 27th, 2009

Wish I could spend every Friday afternoon drinking champagne and lunching in the company of inspiring women …

Today I’ve been to the first Women on their Way (WOW) Awards ceremony, launched by Jo Cameron (of The Apprentice fame) and Lisa Ibbotson, to celebrate and recognise the “energy that women bring into work and their resolve to make a difference”. 

The lunchtime event was held at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens in Edgbaston and hosted by proud Brummie Marverine Cole of Sky News.

I was a guest of (Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council’s groundbreaking initiative to help local businesses inter-trade and collaborate), which sponsored the ‘Online Business Award’.

My lovely colleague and friend Julie Dixon at Sandwell MBC had the honour of handing over the trophy to winner Jane Hopkins.

Jane set up to give entrepreneurial mothers the marketing and business tools they need to run a successful venture from home.

There was a small but significant, behind-the-scenes triumph for finditinsandwell today, too: Jo Cameron had sourced the AV company (Smethwick-based Nachural) through the website, and commissioned Kiss Me Cupcakes in West Bromwich to supply delectable table favours.

It’s always great to see people buying locally and making the most of our diverse, talented supply chain here in the Midlands. Feels like our work at finditinsandwell is paying off!

Happy weekend, all.

Hello world!

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

Well now. I quite like WordPress’ default title for new bloggers: “Hello world!” Think I will keep it.

Hello, world. I’m Marie Kreft, owner and copywriter at Good As Gold Writing Services Ltd, based in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. Feel free to rummage around my newly designed website (expertly crafted by Dan Mitchell) and see what Good As Gold does.

Thanks to an over-zealous entrepreneur I met last summer, who backstepped me into a corner in dogged pusuit of a sale (fire nozzles), I made three business resolutions: a) don’t bore people, b) don’t scare people and c) try to be interesting. So I’m not here to jabber on and on, but instead to bring you useful updates, worthwhile news … and pictures of the rather erotic Dual Gallonage Combo Nozzle 1-1/2″ NST GPM.
