Female Founders in Hassocks are Thriving!

Last November, Ditchling resident and Founder of Lock Healthcare Recruitment, Abigail Lock launched the Thrive Meetup in Hassocks with the support of Clare Griffiths, Founder and Chief Enabler of The Thrive Effect.

Since then, over 60 women in business have attended the Thrive Meetup in Hassocks to develop their business skills and make new connections. During the first half of the meetup, attendees learn from a female business owner who shares her expertise or experience on a particular topic. So far, the attendees have learnt how to present with confidence, how to create a successful brand and how to develop customer personas. During the second half, members participate in a peer support session where they find practical solutions for each other’s business challenges.

The attendees come from a range of industries and include artists, business consultants, hairdressers, marketers, nutritionists, retailers, social entrepreneurs and solicitors.

Abigail says, ‘I have really enjoyed building the Thrive Meetup in Hassocks and getting to know other women in business from the local area. Our attendees have told me that they have found the meetups really inspiring and informative and a great opportunity to meet likeminded women’.

The group meets on the second Tuesday of the month at the Talking Hands Coffee Shop in Hassocks. Tickets cost £6 and free drinks and nibbles are provided.
