Websites for Working Mums


Each week in our BNI lunchtime meeting, I am expected to get up and tell other members and visitors a little bit about my work in a sixty second snapshot.

If you want to find out a bit more about our weekly meetings, skip to the bottom of this page.

Here's what I had to say this week:

"My name is Jon Ewing and I am from ltd, a website design and development company from Reading established more than ten years ago.

"You should refer business to me because when BNI's assistant director Nick Forgham took up my references to be a member of BNI, he said they were two of the best he'd ever been given.

"It's Mother's Day this Sunday, so I thought it timely to mention that working mums are amongst my best clients.

"I look after the website for my wife, who runs a company specialising in training public relations professionals.

"One of my clients is a lady in London who runs a business called The Audience Club providing very, very low priced tickets for theatre, comedy and concerts.

"Another is a working mum from Braintree who runs a travel business with her father, renting holiday villas in Tenerife and the Canary Islands.

"So this week I'd like you to refer me to a working mum who is starting up her own company and needs a website or just some advice on how to do business on the internet.

"And at this point I wanted to say that if you need me to provide a reference, I can give you a whole list of ladies who would be prepared to give me one... but then I thought that might not sound quite right.

"Instead I'll just say: to find out how good your website could be, look into inframes."

What's BNI?

I am one of half-a-dozen people who have started a new chapter of the BNI business networking group and we're looking for other Reading-based small business professionals to refer business to.

We meet between 12.15pm and 1.45pm on Wednesdays. If you'd like to come along to a lunch, please drop me a line or give me a call and I'll put you in touch with our organiser.

There's absolutely no commitment required – you just pay a tenner, which covers the cost of lunch at the Strada on the Oracle Riverside - and you'll have a chance to meet existing members and other visitors, introduce your business and of course hand out business cards.
