Derbyshire Doves learn how to write their business stories

On 15th November, Victoria Prince and Vicky Fox presented a workshop to the Wire Doves in Belper, to take them through the thought process to writing a business story.

The idea came from the 2017 Wire Conference, where Philippa Davies presented about ‘sticky story marketing’ and explained about her Udemy course online, which takes business people on a journey to write about how they got into the business they’re in.

24 wire members and guests attended the event – the biggest turn out in a while, proving that businesswomen in rural areas such as Derbyshire need a little help with some aspects of their business. This Wire event meant that support could be delivered at a mere £7 for members, £10 for guests, including a supper!

The evening was sadly the last for Lindsay Trevarthen as Wire Doves Network Leader. After two years Lindsay has stepped down to spend more time developing her qigong classes and workshops, and will remain a key member of the networking group.

Lindsay explains: “With building work on our house (after three years) finally finished, 2018 is also going to be The Year of The Garden!  Victoria Prince, of SME Touchpoints, has been working with me as Co-Network Leader and now Vicky Fox, of Fox Business Support, will be joining her.  I’ll still be helping out occasionally and will be the eyes and ears of the Ashbourne area, but the two Vic’s will now be running the show!”

Lindsay has been instrumental in numerous projects and initiatives for the group, one of which was the Wire Doves photograph on the stepping stones and the bonad painting of the same scene which now hangs in Betty’s Sewing Box in Ashbourne.
