Events in Devon

Louise is currently available for events in Devon and online, including talks and workshops – please email requests to 

Louise attends, hosts and speaks at a number of events in Devon throughout the year, in and around Exeter, Torbay and Plymouth. These include Laptop Friday (weekly coworking) and Devon Women In Business (regular networking lunches).

It’s always great to meet new people so please do try and attend whenever you’re in the South West! Feel free to get in touch if you have a coworking or networking event that you would like Louise to attend or to discuss speaking opportunities.

However, these days we all seem to be getting more comfortable working at home on laptops and hand-held devices so, please join us online for support, career tips and networking in our facebook group: Your Dream Job Club and on LinkedIn in the Dream Job Networking Group.

Events in Devon for Business Networking

You have to network to get work, so don’t be shy! There are events in Devon or online to suit everyone so my advice is to join a few and decide which one suits your style. Then attend regularly so that you get to know people and they get to know you.

Laptop Friday – Bovey Tracey, Devon

Laptop Friday is one of my favourite coworking events in Devon. I host it every Friday morning 10-Noon. You’re welcome to join us if you’re working from home, whether you’re an employee, a freelancer or a business-owner.

Follow Laptop Friday on Twitter and join our facebook group too.

We meet up for free and friendly coworking each week at Cafe 3 Sixty in Bovey Tracey, Devon. It’s super relaxed and the ideal way to ease yourself into networking if you’re nervous about it.

(Other Laptop Friday events happen in Cheltenham, Stroud, Ilfracombe and Cardiff.)

Devon Women In Business

Another of my favourite events in Devon is the Devon Women In Business networking lunch. I took over the running of this group in June 2021 and we launched the Devon Women In Business Awards in association with Astrality Business Services soon after. If you are a woman running a business in Devon, please book your ticket. Our regular venue is the stunning Passage House Hotel in Newton Abbot. #DWIB #DWIBAwards

Fun and Knowledgeable Speaker

“I have had the pleasure of co-presenting beside Louise on two occasions, Louise speaks with passion and humour to share her very specialised knowledge with her audience. Her talks are accessible and leave you wanting to go out and update your social media accounts immediately! She even got the world biggest Twitter sceptic, me, on Twitter and actually enjoying it! The way she relates the high street to social media means you walk away with clarity about what you are trying to achieve on each platform.

If you want a fun, knowledgeable and confident speaker do not hesitate to book Louise.”
