She lives in Hoghton with husband Chris, the co-creator of the business, and work from their home office with hounds Amber and Lily to keep them company. Like a typical business owner, Amy is hands on with all aspects, but has a specific focus on marketing and sales, working to spread the brand messages and find new retailers to stock the products. She’s a huge advocate of collaborative networking, has been involved in many #cwscreatives projects and was one of our founder members.
Amy will be sharing about the start of The Northern Dough Co and how it’s evolved from beginning at their kitchen table to now being a househould name. Along with plenty of practical tips Amy is going to talk about the challenges and decisions made that’s brought them to where they are now.
As always our Meet Ups provide a place to ask even the silliest question, get business advice, network and make new friends. It’s a relaxed non-salesy atmosphere – no 60 second elevator pitches! After our speaker the rest of the time is open to chat with other attendees.
We will be at the co-working space Society 1 and there will be tea and coffee and treats provided within the price of your ticket. Whoop!
This event is open to non-members so tell your friends or colleagues and grab them a ticket.
£1 from each ticket goes to a CWS Creatives business and they provide a gift for each attendee!

Where can I park?
There’s no free car park unfortunately, but there are plenty of city centre car parks near by.
Can I bring my child?
This is an adults only meet up. We do hold child friendly meet ups, though the next one won’t be until early next year.
Do I need to buy my ticket in advance?
Definitely, get your ticket as soon as possible as these events sell out fast.
Do I need to bring anything along with me?
Just yourself and maybe some business cards and something to make notes on (like your phone, or a notepad)
Do I need to be a member to come along?
Not at all! As long as you are a female business owner/self employed you are welcome to attend
Will I have to speak in front of everyone?
Definitely not! We try and keep our meet ups as low key as we can. We have a signing in wall so you can see who is here and Morgana is on hand to welcome and do any introductions.
