2019 was another busy year for me and Covhour.

Here are a few of our few highlights…


In February I discovered that I had been nominated for Woman Who Achieves award.


On International Women’s Day - 8th March I found out that I had become a finalist for the Woman Who Achieves for Networking award. I felt like a winner right there and then.

On 24th March I put on my running shoes to take part in the Coventry Half Marathon and I will be taking part again in 2020.


It was a busy one!! I was very proud to be asked to be a judge for The Worthies Awards (part of the Kenilworth Chamber of Trade) - what an amazing night.

Woman Who Achieves awards also took place in June where I got a Special Mention Award.

Then we held Covhour Live at the Belgrade Theatre - another great, well attended event with guest speakers Neil Edgington from EDG Property talking about the CO-OP development and Helen Hotchkiss from the Belgrade & Trish Willetts from Coventry Business Improvement District.

I was also very proud to receive a mention in my company magazine (the day job) about my work with Covhour.


I attended the meet & greet for StrictlyXmas19 (will explain more in the next blog).


I met Beverley Knight at the Midlands Business & Community Charity Awards where I was nominated for Networker of the Year. I had a great year and can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store.

#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?
