"I became a member of the Gossip Gals Networking group late last year and I have never regretted this decision. Emma is such a lovely, caring and supportive human being. Every day is tackled by her with positive energy and a smile! Would highly recommend!"
Helen Boyton from Helen Boynton Family Lawyer
"Being part of Gossip Gals Networking has been invaluable to my business - I have been welcomed into a family of intelligent, eclectic and knowledgeable ladies, a group that is supportive and happy to advise and listen.
Lancashire Gossip Gals is a networking group like no other I have been part of - the importance of building and cultivating relationships and friendships is the basis of creating lasting and positive business contacts and links - LGG is the ideal platform for this as businesses in the same sector are encouraged to work together and collaborate rather than compete."
"Being around so many strong, independent business women has given me the confidence to take the leap and take my business to the next level and I know that with the continuing support from Emma and all the other fabulous ladies in the group (and a lot of hard work and elbow grease!!) I will definitely succeed!
My shop the Crafty Cottage is testament to how collaboration beats competition - I have created a collective of some of Lancashire’s best artists, crafters and eco-aware businesses and LGG was the catalyst to bringing my vision together."
Lou Wiltshire from Made With Love By The Crafty Cat
“I love this group, it’s so uplifting and supportive. Gossip Gals Networking isn’t just about selling your services and products."
"This group of ladies share, support and help each other in business and daily life. I’ve personally made some great friendships here and made some fabulous connections. A huge thank you to Emma Whalley for her unfaltering enthusiasm and commitment to running this group. She is a fabulous ambassador"
Lynne Webster from Baby Bamboo and Beyond
"I only recently set up my own business at the end of 2019 and was introduced to Emma and her group at the beginning of this year. I can honestly say it’s the best group I’ve joined! Emma is amazing, her support, her business sense and just her overall personality is just amazing! She has such a fantastic way of explaining the world of business, social media and general networking in a way that even a newbie feels comfortable with!
Her groups have an encouraging following of amazing business women who empower and support each other x I feel so excited to see where she will go next and would highly recommend anyone to get involved with Emma and her amazing groups! Thankyou Emma"
Bex from All Bex Beauty
“ This is such a lovely group to belong to. I love the set days that we have to support each other’s businesses and also to promote ourselves. But it isn’t all about business. It is about friendship and emotional support too. Especially during the coronavirus pandemic. Women have reached out to each other and supported each other during a time that we have, not only had to deal with the crisis, but also dealing with our business issues. A great group!”
Caroline from Caroline Bakes Cakes UK
"I have been a member of Lancashire Gossip Gals since it started two years ago and I must say it has been an amazing opportunity to get to know other self employed creative people and also to share my progress. I’m a writer and actor, both of which are very difficult occupations to get yourself out there and known. Being a part of LGGs has enabled me to connect with so many wonderful supportive women who have encouraged me along the way, particularly with my storytelling project for children, Wish You Were Here Seaside Stories."
"This project started with a commission last year to produce a storytelling feature at a live event in Blackpool on the pier. After developing the character and writing the original stories, I took the project out to a number of events last summer. With high hopes for 2020 when I planned to branch out and perform at festivals, family events and parties, lockdown could have flawed me completely when all my potential for income disappeared. However, when I launched my storytelling online and started to write more stories, Emma and her wonderful members were unfailing in their support for what has now become a twice weekly occurrence. The group has also been great in sharing in my joy now that I have published a book of my stories for children to read again and again."
"A massively supportive group of women headed up by Emma Whalley who has been so generous with her business advice and guidance for anyone who needs it, I am so grateful for the benefits I have found from being a part of Lancashire Gossip gals."
Linda Hampton from Wish you were here - seaside stories
