It has been four months since we launched our first issue at the end of November last year and what a fabulous response we have had. There really are some incredible businesswoman and entrepreneurs in our region.

Our cover story this time features former BBC Five Live presenter Danni Hewson. Danni has had a brilliant career in broadcasting and as she moves on to pastures new, I caught up with her to find out what the future holds.

Last month we teamed up with Time to Bloom to bring a fabulous online event to our readers. The evening began with a relaxing yoga session followed by capsule wardrobe styling and the main event of the evening, working with menopause where our panel, including myself, talked about this, a subject that affects all women and how to cope in the workplace. There are a number of Time to Bloom events coming up, check out the dates at the back of our latest issue and don’t forget to order your goody bag!

During the pandemic we found lots of people were asking questions about employment and what their rights were during these difficult times. To help, we have teamed up with Jodie Hill from Thrive Law who is going to be on hand to answer all your questions. If you have an employment law related question, forward to us at and we will arrange to have Jodie answer it for you.

We celebrated International Women’s Day in early March, and asked our readers to nominate the person who most inspires you. We received lots of stories about inspirational women, far too many to publish the information about them all, but we have listed the ladies you think are making a difference in our region.

Finally, as lockdown begins to ease, we are planning a range of face-to-face events this summer in conjunction with Dakota Leeds. The first is planned for July 2nd. A number of our events will be for Yorkshire Businesswomen members only, check out details of this exclusive new club on page 8 of our latest edition.
