A group of enterprising businesswomen gathered at one of Berkshire's premier hotels on the 1st of May to join in the re-launch of SHEplc, a dynamic network of businesswomen.

Mary Flavelle, founder of SHEplc, formed SHEplc in 2005,when she worked at the Chamber of Commerce. Hundreds of ladies have attended over the years and many have gone on to fantastic heights with their businesses, yet when Mary left the Chamber nearly three years ago the networking eventually events faded.

Mary's belief and faith that one day she would own SHEplc came to pass when the Chamber handed it back to her with their blessing. Mary's first guest speaker to launch the new and very exciting SHEplc, was Paula Wynne, founder of Remote Employment, Remote Employment, a job site specialising in flexible, remote and home working.

Paula was introduced as an Entrepreneur, Internet Female Hero, SEEDA Woman's Ambassador, Businesswomen, Mum, Freelancer, Writer and PR Hound Dog!

Paula shared her journey of setting up Remote Employment soon after a shoulder operation left her with a dislocated collarbone and subsequent operations to reconstruct her shoulder with metal plates. Consumed with pain and discomfort as well as suffering from sleepless nights, Paula's determination and persistence to succeed pulled her through.

During this very difficult time, Paula's passion for the concept of remote working and home working launched the online website with lots of attention and Paula's infectious enthusiasm has seen the company receive two business awards in a short space of time.

Paula invited all of Mary's guests to enter The Remote Worker Awards, which aims to raise awareness for remote and home working as an alternative solution to redundancy and the traditional nine to five office routine.

The awards has nine different categories and award winners will walk away with a prestigious trophy and will enjoy up to 50k in prizes, including a Penthouse Garden Office worth 10k, a Home Based Franchise worth 15k, interior design, business starter kits, a mobile laptop and a fabulous luxury weekend at a von Essen Hotel.

Paula is used to talking to groups of women about being a PR Hound for their business along with other topics on marketing and business advice, and many of the SHEplc guests found her recent experience inspiring.

Mary's guests included Tessa Harris, editor of Berkshire Life, Carla Delaney, Editor of Business Monthly and Debra Aspinall, Editor of Vive Magazine. Mary said: "It was very exciting and exhilarating to launch my dream for SHEplc at Cliveden House. We had a wonderful group of ladies who enjoyed every minute of networking and sharing their business success with each other. We want to see more ladies joining us every month and share in the SHE experience!" For more information about SHEplc and Mary's fantastic business networking, get onto and get networking.
