You might have joined Anna in one of her Flex Appeal Flashmobbing dances or shared her agony in miscarrying but she is tackling real life issues that both parents face.
The Lady Danger lipstick wearer will chat about all things blogging, vlogging, her journey as a mother and for those who are thinking of setting up a business, Anna will offer her advice of how to build your brand.
Tate and Fable
Lucy AKA Tate and Fable (named after her beautiful boys) is a Warwickshire based Instagram Blogger who captures her family life and their adventures through natural photography.
Lucy started her blog in order to push out the isolation that came with maternity leave. At first it gave her an escape and an opportunity to seek advice from other mothers but then it became something more.
Lucy started to brand rep as she loved supporting small businesses and feeling part of a community. Her followers grew and now 10K join her journey. As she became a mother for the second time round, mothers started coming to her for advice.
Lucy offers her story and wisdom on how to use Instagram as a positive source but also to build up a friendship network that will offer support at such an important time in your life.
Take It From Mummy
Nikki around three years ago created a local support and advice group for parents in her area called Mum Knows Best Warwickshire so that mothers could come together and discuss questions that other mums would have answers to.
This amazing network formed a strength amongst women who supported one another. With that she created her site takeitfrommummy.com which not only acts as a blog on all things parenting, it provides information of whats going on locally, whether it be playgroups, children’s entertainment, guide to crafts, birthday planning and product reviews.
Nikki will be offering insight on how to build a network around your area so that you feel supported and never alone and she will talk about her passion of fundraising and how you can use your mama support group to make a difference to others.
Also on the panel will be the lovely women behind Mama Tribe, Danni & Georgie.
Mama Tribe is a curated directory for Mamas. A brand and network directory of inspiring, hard working mamas; for those who own their own business or who are building a business and need a platform to showcase them.
Their website provides information and events that will benefit mamas who don't have a business and will enable them to access the best Mama brands and Network events in their area.
Danni & Georgie will also be available before and after the event to discuss their Directory in more detail and what they can offer you or your project and your journey through motherhood.
Not only will there be a Goody Bag for all mamas to take home with them, there will be free tea and cake of course!!! A chance to chat to guest speaking mamas and each other. Children are welcome too.
50% of tickets sales will go to the neonatal unit charity Bliss and raising funds for two more beds for the maternity ward in Warwick.
