SEED's 12th Birthday

International Women's Day 2012 is the 12th Anniversary of SEED when The SEED Handbook was first published simultaneously across the Atlantic.   And what an incredible twelve years it has been for women entrepreneurs. The book's subtitle "the feminine way to create business" was treated as completely whacky by some of the media at first - including the women's press - whereas now it has become recognised  that women do have different strengths such as  relationship building, listening to our intuition and multi-tasking which can prove very strong assets to all kinds of businesses.  There is still a long way to go in the corporate world but I have seen  through SEED and B.Hive how women business owners' confidence grows as we learn to work together, network and share our dreams.

We are celebrating our birthday with lots of different exciting activities over the period, starting with me joining some of the country's top women in the country at a very special breakfast organised by the WIE Network  on March 8th at the Stock Exchange, followed by my workshop  on The Whole Women at their event at The Hospital Club in Covent Garden.

Talking of Covent Garden, B.Hive will be celebrating all day with a special IWD Tea at our flagship in Southampton Street and I am very proud of our Manchester B.Hive Community who are hosting the main fundraiser for Oxfam for the day with talks, events, stories and treats at our beautiful King Street, Manchester B.Hive.

Friday is the start of WOW (Women of The World) at The South Bank and I will be interviewed by the Festival's Director Jude Kelly at 2 pm followed by hosting The SEED Clinic where the SEED Team will be there to work with all newcomers on their vision of starting a sustainable enterprise.

We are also launching the SEED Video Survey where we will be interviewing thousands of women across the country over the coming months on what truly matters to them.

And on Saturday and Sunday I will be holding  at B.Hive, Covent Garden two very special events, the SEED Coaching weekend where you can learn to be a SEED Coach yourself and on Sunday, 11th March I will be running my SEED Experience Day which is full of activities and enjoyment while planting the SEEDS to the rest of your life.  You can find out all you need to know by visiting

It's going to be an incredible celebration,
See You In The Garden,
Love Lynne
