During my long working life, I have worked for a variety of businesses – from large blue chip – then the small one or two-man operations. This has given me a wealth of experience within the working sector.
In 2005 – I decided to use my knowledge and experience to set up my own bookkeeping business and soon engaged new clients and was fortunate to grow steadily – mainly through recommendations.
One thing stood out for me is that you are pretty much on your own. With decisions to make and the complexity of running a business – however large or small. The same problems exist and arise. With no one to confer with I looked to networking, and attended numerous events – made contacts, some of whom have remained my friends all these years later.
I was approached to take up the post of Secretary to the Epping Forest Chamber of Commerce in 2009. I duly signed up for the role and worked through the ranks and now many years on was honoured to be voted in as Chair at the recent AGM held in April 2019.
I believe passionately in the Chamber and for what it stands for – now celebrating its 71st year! The support and guidance the Chamber can offer is invaluable.
