Where it all started

Bloom Networking was originally created by two mums running our own businesses, myself, Jo Schutt and Renee Williams. After meticulous planning and research our first meeting was held in February 2012. This was a fantastic growth journey, as we connected with a wide range of wonderful women in business on the Mornington Peninsula.



In February 2013 Bloom Networking evolved from a partnership to a solo venture as Renee went on to refocus on her business & love of travel as an independent travel consultant (Renee Williams TravelManagers) and her two beautiful children. While I’m thoroughly enjoying the Bloom journey, I eagerly acknowledge that it would not be possible without the first 12 months of partnership with Renee and her continued support of Bloom.

Four years on Bloom is going from strength to strength, and our forum is fast gaining a reputation as a nurturing, enthusiastic growth platform for women in business. I look forward to welcoming you to Bloom to enjoy the connections and commitment of business women for yourself.
