Connecting Women Bazaar

I’ve attended the Connecting Women events a couple of times since I arrived in The Netherlands early this year and it’s a wonderful group  of inspiring, talented businesswomen.  I love that it’s such a dynamic mix of different nationalities and a broad range of businesses.  You can also read an earlier blog post I wrote about this networking group in The Hague.

This post is about their Annual Festive Bazaar.  What a fantastic way to celebrate the festive season!!  Not only was it a hugely enjoyable evening, there was also an opportunity to support each other’s businesses by buying Christmas presents for friends and family from a wide range of lovely local products & services.

The set up was great – an area to eat and drink, a stage to enjoy a talent show throughout the evening and a large room with display tables for all the businesses so you could browse and network.  Attendance was impressive, lots of really interesting, friendly people to talk to.  There was a raffle at the end where many of us went home with great prizes, I was lucky enough to win a free one hour fitness consult from Jessica Hills, Fitness Matters.

Here’s a list of the participants that were there  who have websites , as I’d love to make it easy for everyone to take a look at and support these great businesses:

I took along my camera and ended up being the “official photographer” for the evening, which was an absolute pleasure considering the kaleidoscope of colour there.  A couple of images are below and you can view all the images at the Connecting Women Annual Bazaar 2012 Photo gallery.
