A businesswoman who set up her company with £9 from the housekeeping budget will be the speaker at a women’s networking event this September.
The third women’s networking group of 2017 is being held on Thursday, September 14, following the huge success of both 2017 events.
Founded in 2013, the West Cheshire Womens Business Network provides an opportunity for businesswomen to come together, four meetings are held throughout the year.
In 1982 Margaret Carter of The Patchwork Traditional Food Company, was a talented, although untrained, home cook, who found herself divorced with three children to look after.
With a start-up cost of just £9, saved from the housekeeping, she began selling her home made pâtés to pubs in nearby Llangollen.
As Margaret attracted more and more customers and the business successfully started to expand she moved the business from her house in 1987 to a purpose-equipped factory in the heart of Ruthin.
Despite the commercial scale today, everything is still hand-made in small batches, without artificial colouring, additives or preservatives, to Margaret’s original recipes.
The event will begin at 9.30am; attendees will be greeted with a selection of tea, coffees, pastries and cakes; it is then time to network before our speaker brings the morning to a close at around 11.30am.
Spaces for this event, to be held at the Holiday Inn Chester South are limited so booking is essential.
