Business Babble Royston was established in 2013 by Jayne Bratton to support women who were running, or thinking of starting, their own small businesses. Jayne began the group when she was a sole-trader working from home as she felt the need for peer company and support. In the last year membership has grown steadily from 20 to well over 400, and due to the passion and enthusiasm of the members Business Babble made it to the finals of the FSB Networking Awards in 2015 and again in 2016.

Business Babble has a strong sense of peer support, coaching and training which has been there from the start and is what makes it unique. Babblers join for female company, for ideas, to keep them focused and access to excellent training. To ensure it is Mum friendly all of the courses and meetings are set around school hours and avoid school holidays where possible.

In 2014 Business Babble Hitchin was launched with long term Babbler and business woman Claire Humphries taking the helm. This second Babble Group supports the ongoing aim to offer flexible, local, affordable support and training for members. Business Babble has also been asked by a local council to run a group in Cambridge and this will launch later this year.

Business Babble membership offers monthly meetups in your local area plus access to a fantastic range of affordable Babble Training courses, including topics such as; how to set up and design your own website, running a successful company and business accounts. Our passion is to support our members by delivering affordable and friendly training sessions to assist in developing their business.
