New female-focused network supporting local businesswomen launches in Hull

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 7 Dec 2018

A new female-focused network supporting local businesswomen, entrepreneurs and creatives has launched in Hull.

The Standout Set aims to bring together entrepreneurial women in the area who currently run their own business or are considering taking the leap into self-employment.

The group will provide support in the form of online resources, before expanding with workshops, networking events and coaching sessions.

The network is growing online, with the first The Standout Set events set to be held early next year.

The Standout Set has been created by Laura O’Donnell, a writer and business owner who has run a PR and communications consultancy in Hull for the past six years.

Ms O’Donnell said: “For many people, working for yourself is the ultimate goal, and there are brilliant new businesses launching here all the time.

“I know from my own experience that while running your own business can be great, it can also be tough – it can be lonely and it can become all too easy to doubt yourself and not reach your full potential.

“I want to create a group that provides practical advice while also establishing a supportive community to help minimise all of the unhelpful ‘noise’ that can stand in your way as a female entrepreneur.”
