The Facebook She Means Business Programme consisted of hand-picked #DigitalMarketing specialists from across the UK who were trained specifically by Facebook to deliver Training Events and Meet Ups on their behalf to achieve their ambitious target of training 50,000 female entrepreneurs per year.

Although the She Means Business programme has now finished, Janet is still delivering Facebook and Instagram training as an accredited Meta Lead Trainer, and she continues to have access to a network of UK based digital marketing specialists.
