Our team

Our team exists to help you get more from your business networking. Nearly all of us run our own small businesses, some more than one, so we understand the challenges faced by owners, partners and business leaders.

Our small central team is supported by our Area and Group Leaders. Any additional or specialist skills and services are sourced from within the Fabulous Networking Community wherever possible.

Each Area Leader provides advice, guidance and support for the leaders of five to seven groups whilst helping to grow the community in their area. Whilst our meetings share a similar agenda we encourage our Group Leaders to bring their own personal experience and personality to their meetings so each group has its own unique character. Leaders work as a team to support and cover for each other when needed.

We are always interested in hearing from gregarious, positive, well-connected people who would like to know more about opening a group in their locale. Please email Glenda* to find our more.

Meet Glenda. Managing Director

Glenda describes her career to date as preparation for her role as MD of Fabulous Networking. Her early career was in Personnel Management in Marks and Spencer where nine moves in 10 years taught her management skills and the importance of building relationships quickly.

Following the birth of her first child in 1991 Glenda started her own business, The Training Pack, where she swiftly learned the value of networking. Most of her work came from referral and repeat business. An early contract led to a lifelong interest in marketing and ultimately her role as Head of Marketing with Fabulous Networking. Glenda is now a certified practitioner with Watertight Marketing and is qualified to teach adults. She loves getting out and about to meetings to meet, and learn from, our wonderfully diverse members.

Area Leaders

Leonie Wright

business sector

Company name

Leonie Wright has been involved with Fabulous Networking since the beginning and has led the Esher/Oxshott group since its formation in May 2012. She is now Area Leader for a number of groups in Surrey.

Leonie promotes healthy eating through her business Eat Wright. She’s on a mission to get us to reduce our sugar intake and has published two recipe books to help. We’re all inclined to hide our pastries when Leonie is around.

It’s ironic that one of her hobbies is cake making! She has inherited her skills from a family of bakers and says her special ingredient is the flour she uses from her native Holland.

Felicity Dwyer

business sector

Company name

Felicity has led our Winchester group for many years and, in addition, is now Area Leader for Hampshire.

Developing people is at the core of Felicity’s work and ethos. She’s a management trainer and has been a coach for more than 15 years, she specialises in helping mid-life professionals to find work that they love.

Felicity loves to dance. She’s recently qualified in Nia dance, a technique that uses both mind and movement. We’re looking forward to Felicity teaching us all some moves.

Nick Blanchard

business sector

Company name

Nick runs our Richmond Group and is Area Leader for our London groups.

Nick is in the protection business… no he’s not the Godfather … he sells protection insurance through Contego Life and specialises in Vitality Health Insurance.

When he’s not selling insurance, you might find him marshalling a park run, stewarding at major rugby, cricket or football matches or taking on the role of Father Christmas at a garden centre we won’t name for fear of spoiling the magic! We were all jealous of Nick who was on duty at Lords on that momentous day when England defeated New Zealand so narrowly to win the cricket World Cup.

Ian Crocker

business sector

Company name

Ian is Area Leader for the Surrey groups that Leonie doesn’t support.

Developing people is also Ian’s specialism. He has close to 30 years’ experience in training, coaching and development and has worked with big businesses and owner managers. Ian is adept at getting us to think about what and how we are communicating.

In addition to his role with Fabulous Networking Ian also runs Fresh Air Fridays in Guildford which combines networking and walking with some personal and business development.
