Awesome women in marketing (in Cornwall)

To Celebrate International Women’s Day 2021, I wanted to share with you some really awesome women in marketing who I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know.  💓

They’re all based in Cornwall and are working on some really cool stuff with national and international clients.

And they’re all totally badass! 

These women have inspired me, encouraged me, educated me, and are just freaking amazing. 

Give them a follow on social, you need their awesomeness in your life too.

I’ve really loved her honestly about the challenges of running a business during lockdown whilst also tackling emergency education with her daughter. It’s freaking refreshing, and always nice to know other people are going through the same challenges! 🤣
