Brewing up for a coffee break!

YOU'VE heard about Ladies Who Lunch. So how about joining the coffee set? Holmfirth-based businesswoman Susan Gillespie is set to launch a local branch of networking group Ladies Who Latte.

Susan, an independent travel agent Susan Gillespie plans to launch the networking group for the first time in the area in January, 2012.

Now she is drumming up support for the new group, which it is hoped will meet monthly.

Ladies Who Latte is aimed at women running their own businesses and women in management roles within other companies.

The first Ladies Who Latte group was started just over four years ago by Sharon Connolly, an international image consultant.

Mary Flavelle, who specialises in women's networking events, partners Sharon in growing the group, which has set up networking branches across the UK.

Susan said: "Ladies Who Latte is flexible networking with a less formal approach.

"Whether you have 15 minutes to pop in or you stay for two hours, we hope that you will enjoy a well-earned break to share ideas and most importantly gain motivation from other entrepreneurial women.

"There are no speakers and you don't pay to attend - just pay for your coffee and mingle!" Said Susan: "In less than one year of its launch, Ladies Who Latte grew to more than 600 members.

"It now stretches across England with a membership of more than 3,000 women."

Susan, who currently attends Ladies Who Latte events at Tankersley, near Barnsley, is one of the latest experienced travel consultants to launch her own travel business with the support of Travel Counsellors.

She specialises in giving her customers the highest possible levels of personal service and independent travel advice - drawing on more than five years of travel experience in the industry.

Working from home, she is able to speak to customers at a time to suit themselves, even if it is outside working hours.

Commenting on her website about the concept of Ladies Who Latte, Sharon Connolly said: "We are women with imagination, drive, enthusiasm and hope and we are enjoying sharing out success because it's no good being fabulous on your own!"
