SEED Networking for Women

SEED, a community of women who believe that by sharing their stories, their personal lives and businesses will grow and bloom.


I invite you to join me at my beautiful home in Deia, Mallorca for one of our signature BLOOM Retreats designed to nurture, inspire and empower the whole woman. I know from my own experience as a mother, grandmother, teacher and business woman how important it is to take a break from our busy day-to-day lives to reconnect with ourselves, our dreams and aspirations.

Welcome to the Seed Community for Women

Have you ever been telling a story to a group of women, and they begin nodding their heads, saying how similar things have happened to them?
As each woman begins sharing her experiences, an energy gets created that spreads around the group like wildfire. Whether about our lovers and husbands, our health, our beliefs, our kids, our work, or how we want to create value in our local and global community, we women empathise, connect, and resonate with each other.

Remember the SEED Network website is the place to go for lots of information about starting your own business, SEED Circles, the SEED Coaching Programme, help and advice, books and a whole lot more.
