I just wanted to thank you all for the mountains of emails and messages I received after my announcement last week. Your kind words were a very powerful tonic – Thank you. Here’s just a few of your lovely words, It’s wonderful to hear that working with The BWN and me has been so beneficial to you all. Business women of The BWN – You Rock!

thank you for all your work for BWN and women in business.

Despite having only met you at one event, you stick in my mind as an inspiration to grow both personally and professionaly. I hope our paths cross outside of the BWN at some point. Wishing you my sincere and very best wishes for your recovery to health very soon. 

I am very sorry to hear your news. Concentrate on getting well – your legacy will live on! We’ll all be thinking of you. Even when not well you are always an inspiration.

Your a fabulous woman Mandie!

you are always there for everyone and have been a fantastic support but having a family give’s us ladies a busy life on it’s own let alone anything extra!!! Well done you for building such a massive empire, you have certainly helped me to where I am today

I have always kept up to date with your brilliant team.

You will be so missed Mandie. You have been an inspiration to me and I often find myself talking about you and the amazing energy you enthuse to all that come into contact with you. I’m sure I’m not alone in wishing you a very speedy recovery and look forward to working with you again in the future.

Love you dearly as a friend and colleague.

You will so be missed at the BWN. I just wanted to say thank you again for flagging up the opportunity and giving me the confidence to enter Britain’s Best Dish last year.

Thank you for all you have done for me so far.

You have done an amazing job and achieved so much. It has been a pleasure meeting and networking with you. Wishing you good health and happiness,

Thank you for all your efforts & enthusiasm.

I had been meaning to contact you to say a MASSIVE thank you for your little online tutorial on Mailchimp newsletters. I have now set up my own Mailchimp account and successfully sent one customer newsletter and also a much longer team newsletter which was really well received. It is a great system – fairly intuitive and a bit addictive when it comes to checking who has opened the emails the most! So, thank you for that.

You will be sorely missed. I hope you’ll be back to BWN later in the year.

Just a short note to let you know that I am thinking of you and sending you lots of good wishes for a full recovery!

I look forward to seeing you when you are back and full of beans again! 

Although we haven’t worked together or met, we do keep up to date with all that you do and realise what a difference you have been making to a lot of business women in this area, which is fantastic.

You are an inspiration to women in business. May you recover swiftly so you can long continue your work.

you will be greatly missed over the coming months and I sincerely wish you a speedy recovery.Once again thank you for welcoming me to the BWN

despite having only met you at one event, you stick in my mind as an inspiration to grow both personally and professionaly. I hope our paths cross outside of the BWN at some point. Wishing you my sincere and very best wishes for your recovery to health very soon.

The office isn’t the same without the buzz you bring with you… Hoping we get back working together very soon! 🙂

you have been invaluable to us and certainly motivated and inspired me

You have done a fantastic job and the group has grown considerably through your enthusiasm and efforts, with many women securing new business and building friendships.

I have enjoyed the meetings when I come along.

I think you’re being very courageous – I’m full of admiration!

You are an inspiration to many.

In the short time I have known you and BWN my business has continued to grow and being a member of the premier pack makes me feel more of a business woman than any other networking group. Take good care, and thanks for your support, you’ve been awesome!

Take care & hope to hear positive news in the future.

And I say “Oh you will! The NHS may wish to write me off with pain killers but my positive mental attitude and my sense of humour (yes I have one!) will keep me going – it ain’t over til the fat lady sings (apparently) and I can’t hear one of those! I’m looking forward to being amazingly impressed by how brillantly business has been for you when I see you all again in 6 months time and in the meantime, I’ll still be writing The BWN blog when I can so do share your questions/worries/business & success concerns and I will be more than happy to write something.

Best wishes Always,

Mandie Holgate

The BWN Founder
