    Hi all,

    My name is Brenda Thomson and one of my resolutions for 2010 is to set aside an hour every day for social media – so here I am.

    A bit about me.

    I am married with two fabulous grown up children – one working and one about to start uni.
    I was born in the Isle of Man, grew up in Perth WA, moved to Melbourne (via 12 months in Canberra) when my son was 4.
    I absolutely LOVE Melbourne and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else (although I am very fond of Hobart)

    I love: travelling; leisurely lunches and dinners with a nice glass of New Zealand sav. blanc; live theatre; good books; cooking and horse riding.

    My career:
    I spent twenty years working in human resourse management and training with the public service – last position – Human Resourses Advisor for the Tax Office Box Hill.
    Then had a major career change – spent the next 6 years teaching children with reading disabilities and working on a PhD on learing disabilities.
    Started my own business five years ago.
    We started out simply as a directory of networking groups and a calendar of networking events around Australia. Now we run training programs, quarterly networking events and have a program to connect business owners together to create strategic alliances and joint ventures.
    Won Home Based Business of the Year Award last in 2008.

    I am looking forward to:
    A very exciting 2010 – I feel like I finally know what I am doing as a small business owner – still making lots of mistakes but at least I know what I don’t know now.

    Checking out Networking World – it’d be nice if there was an option for sorting events and groups by their proximity to a chosen point (postcode or named town/city). Kind of a “What’s nearest YOU” view.
