Describe your business
I am a qualified make-up artist and photographer. I find the two strings fit together quite nicely and have allowed me to launch Pamper and Pose parties - various themed parties to suit any occasion, centred around a makeover and professional photoshoot for each guest. I am a location photographer specialising in a relaxed, informal style of portrait photographer. I love to get outdoors whenever possible to photograph children and families in natural settings. I find it puts my clients much more at ease than they would be under studio lights.

How not to use LinkedIn for business

Posted on September 11, 2013 at 16:15 4 Comments

In the past week I have had two major raised eyebrow moments on LinkedIn. I thought I would share them as examples of how not to use LinkedIn for business. It is advice that applies equally to Oldham Business Network, or any other social media platform where you want to make a positive and professional impression.

Last week I declined the kind offer to connect with someone on LinkedIn whose profile picture was of himself sunbathing, shades on and displaying his chest and…

Why women absolutely cannot have it all.

Posted on May 15, 2013 at 14:11 7 Comments

I shall start by apologising to those women (and I know there will be some) who disagree with me on this subject, but I am willing to bet you have yet to sample motherhood. I am actually a little tired of hearing that we women can have everything we want in life, if we are only willing to put in the effort. It is simply not true.

Life, if you are trying to combine work and motherhood, is one long series of compromises and sacrifices. Women who choose to make business their priority…

Pink hair - welcome in the boardroom or just for the red carpet?

Posted on February 12, 2013 at 10:06 0 Comments

I'm sure everyone saw Helen Mirren's bold pink hair on the red carpet at the Baftas. It prompted me to write a little blog on the subject. It also got me thinking about the whole issue of image in business because, if I'm honest, I've always secretly fancied trying out pink hair.

When I worked in the corporate world it was never…
