Lucy Hall is the co-founder of the UK's #1 Social Media forum/ event for SMEs (Social Day). Lucy has 15 years experience in media, sales and marketing and now educates SME business owners on the use of social media for business.






Tracey Robert’s background is business development, communication and organisational expertise gained in the education, banking and care sectors. Tracey continues to contribute towards the growth of ambitious, like-minded entrepreneurs and high growth businesses that will drive growth for mutual benefit and for the wider economy. Tracey's more recent focus has been to support SME's to grow in the South of England by establishing partnership between private enterprise and government. As the Head of South for Grant Funding Specialist T4C, Tracey leads a team of five Growth Managers to support growing businesses to identify and secure grant funding, across nine counties. 


Sarah Whelband is a PR consultant and copywriter extraordinaire. During her 15 years’ experience in some of the UK’s top PR agencies, she’s directed the accounts of industry leaders including Churchill Insurance,, DFDS Seaways and Alliance & Leicester. In her quest to demonstrate that entrepreneurs don’t need a massive budget to gain real momentum, she set up her own business to provide big brand experience at a fraction of the cost. Her mission is to show ambitious business owners how they can, and should, use PR as part of an overall strategy to ‘get their word out there’. 

Jacqueline Franklin
started work in the UK wine trade, which at the time was a very male-dominated industry. At the age of 26, Jacqui became a director of a wine importer in Chelsea Wharf. She then tasted her way through the next 18 years including spending time wine-making in Burgundy. At 42, Jacqui went back to university and completed a degree in Hospitality and Business Management then with her partner, established Hospitality Media, an agency providing photography and video contect to the industry. From there, Jacqui launched a separate video production company Limewood Productions which allowed them to broaden their target audience and reach new markets. Jacqui is now working with Deborah Turner to bring FSB Women in Business events to West Kent.
