We focus on Amy Hobson, Partner of SocialB and LocalB this week in our 'Spotlight' Meet the Member slot and Amy has kindly allowed us to tell all..
So here's Amy..
My family are all from Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire. I was the first to be born in Solihull and I’m still here!
I went to Langley and then Solihull Sixth Form before leaving for a few years to study for my undergraduate degree at Keele. I then came back to the Midlands to do a Masters at the University of Birmingham before moving back to Solihull.
My main work focus has been in franchising where I have worked in Senior Management and have been responsible for the logistics, management and growth of over 100 franchises in the UK and abroad.
I have been able to travel to some amazing places including Transylvania, San Francisco and New York.
My real passion is helping small and medium sized businesses and I jumped at the opportunity to start LocalB in the Solihull and Greater Birmingham area in June 2015 so I could do just that. The digital world moves fast and I love working in such a dynamic workplace where no two days are the same.
I have four boys aged between 13 and 6, a Cockapoo puppy, a big black rescue cat called Moriarty and two guinea pigs. There really is never a quiet moment in my house.
When I’m not working most of my time is taken up with my boys and we love being outside as a family. Most weekends you will see us outside in wellies or enjoying a picnic if the weather is nice enough. If the weather really isn’t good enough then we all love indoor climbing.
Not many people know but ... I have several tattoos and love MotoGP (but I've never ridden a motorbike!)
You can join Amy at a great event with LocalB and SocialB called “How to Make Online Marketing Work for My Business" in Birmingham on the 19th May to learn the essentials of online marketing. Click for details HERE
