Where it all started
Bloom Networking was originally created by two mums running their own businesses, Jo Schutt and Renee Williams. After meticulous planning & research their first meeting was held in February 2012 on the Mornington Peninsula. In February 2013 Bloom Networking evolved from a partnership to a solo venture. Bloom enjoyed growth under Jo's leadership and the forum fast gained a reputation as a supportive, enthusiastic growth platform for women in business on the Mornington Peninsula. In March 2017 Jo handed the reins on to Tashia Searle.
Tashia Searle was running a business similar to Bloom Networking called Success Spectrum in the bayside suburbs of Melbourne. Tashia combined the two businesses under the one Bloom Networking umbrella. Tashia's vision and future direction for Bloom Networking is to appoint amazing women as leaders for various locations thoughout Australia to run Bloom Networking Branches. This will enable Bloom to grow and touch the lives of many more women in business.
I look forward to welcoming you to Bloom Networking to enjoy the connections and commitment of business women for yourself. Tashia Searle
