#Covhour was started on 22nd August 2013 and was the first online networking hour for Coventry.  It was set up with the aim to help local businesses to connect, to share information and to support each other.  Now with a community of more than 10,500 followers in less than four years, we can safely say that this has been achieved!   

 

The unique thing about this online networking group is that it was started by a local Coventry woman Joanne Brooks and unlike most other groups she does not run her own business she is employed by a business in the City.  When asked about the reason she started #Covhour Joanne replied "I enjoy connecting people and I am so proud of the city having lived here all my life, that I wanted to do my bit and to give something back.  I have met so many wonderful people through #Covhour and although it is a big commitment running the networking hour every week, I just love it!"  

Joanne continues to host #Covhour every Thursday between 8 pm and 9 pm and so why not join in this Thursday?

Jo is a Woman Who Finalist…

March 14, 2019

 

Back in February Kate decided to nominate Jo for a Woman Who Award in recognition of the countless hours she puts into managing #covhour week in week out over the last 5 and a half years.

 

The Woman Who Achieve Awards are described as an opportunity ’to inspire and celebrate the achievements of Women in Business and Rising Stars of the future. The aim of the Awards is to encourage women to recognise their achievements, celebrate their successes, motivate others, gain confidence through the Awards process and to grow through the experience.’

 

On Friday 8th March, International Women's Day we attended the announcement of the shortlist. Emma & Kate from Piece of Cake Marketing, Kate from Bear Cleaning and Eve from Medals for Kids joined Jo for the event and we were over the moon to hear Jo named as finalist. 

 

Since then Jo has attended her interview. Now we wait for the awards ceremony on Friday 7th June. Jo is already our winner!

 

Keep your fingers crossed!
