Events in Devon
Louise is currently available for online talks and workshops – please email requests to [email protected]
(When the country is not in lockdown) Louise attends, hosts and speaks at a number of events in Devon throughout the year, in and around Exeter, Torbay and Plymouth.
It’s always great to meet new people so please do come along whenever you’re in the South West!
Please feel free to get in touch if you have a coworking or networking event that you would like Louise to attend or to discuss speaking opportunities.
Regular Online Events
You have to network to get work, so don’t be shy! There’s an online networking event to suit everyone so my advice is to join a few and decide which one suits your style. Then attend regularly so that you get to know people and they get to know you.
I host Laptop Friday Chat every Friday morning 10-Noon. You’re welcome to join us if you’re working from home, you’re a freelancer or you own your own business. Follow Laptop Friday on Twitter and join our facebook group too.
When we’re not in lockdown, we meet up for free and friendly coworking each week in various locations including Cafe 3 Sixty in Bovey Tracey, Devon. (See below.)
Look on Eventbrite for details of great events run by South Devon Business Club (monthly breakfast events) Devon Women In Business (monthly lunchtime events) and Your Partnerships which runs a variety of events all over the county and beyond. These organisatins have all adapted to the current situation and are offering online networking opportunities via zoom.
“You never know who knows someone who needs what you do!”
Read this blog post if you’re feeling nervous about how to behave when you’re networking online. It’s called “How to get the most from online groups” – and the principles are the same in real life.
Laptop Friday (Devon)
Laptop Friday is the best way to end your working week on a high!
We meet every Friday morning in Bovey Tracey at Cafe 3 Sixty (usually!) for free and friendly coworking and networking. If you usually work from home or you’re a solopreneur or freelancer you are welcome to join us. We start at about 9.30am and we’re there throughout the morning until noon. Pop in for half an hour or come for the duration – it’s up to you!
Parking is easily found in the local streets or in the nearby public car-park. Or you could come on your bike and take advantage of the cycle-friendly facilities at the café.
Laptop Friday Chat is our online gathering every Friday morning between 10-12 during lockdown! Email for details or…

Before her recent move to Devon, Louise was a regular guest on BBC Radio Gloucestershire, often appearing with Dom Cotter on the Lunchbreak Show.
She has also been featured on The Knowing Your Business Show with Ian Gentles.
Please get in touch if you would like to interview Louise for your show or publication. Popular subjects include: employability, going self-employed, equality, redundancy, coworking, social media and of course the concept of your Dream Job!
Today we all need to be visible online and someone like Louise is vital to you and me when it comes to understanding what has to be done…and without spending all day doing it!
She shared her knowledge and her expertise and I left the talk much wiser about this vital area of business development.
If you want a fun, knowledgeable and confident speaker do not hesitate to book Louise.
