Let's do Lunch: An Urban Girl's Guide to Making Contacts and Keeping Them

Let's do Lunch is a project I set-up in 2015 whilst studying at journalism at university. I was (and often still am!) the sort of urban girl who'd frequent networking events in a bid to gain contacts and grow my networks. However my follow-up game, other than sending an initial 'was nice meeting you' message, was poor.
So I set up the blog, Let's do Lunch: An Urban Girl's Guide to Making Contacts and Keeping Them, as a challenge to myself to create content for what I hoped who eventually be a self-help book for urban girls wanting to get ahead - fast!
The beginning of 2018 kicked off with a re-awakening of fempowerment awareness (#metoo, #NotOkay, #YesAllWomenCan etc) which is partly the motivation for me to revamp the blog (which was on hold for over a year), and include a networking space for women to claim space to connect and create supportive networks... Food always helps make connections more meaningful!
Let's do Lunch is both metaphoric and intentional - it's the action of doing and sharing, I believe, which creates those connections.
So, when are we doing lunch, coffee, afterwork drinks?
Let's do Lunch Blog:
Interviews with go-getting women!
The let's do lunch blog, now holds a swanky .network domain, is where I'll be sharing my interveiws with women who I think will inspire, motivative or intregue readers! They'll have a story or tip to share relating to being a 'go-getter' - an essential trait of making contacts and essential reaching for success, right? If you'd be interested in sharing your story for the LDL blog over a meal or coffee, or can recommending someone, please email me at via the website
I'll share restuarant reviews a twist - including details of such as; good for lunch meetings? First dates? Table for one? Value for money
Advice and Tips
Sharing advice and tips on networking, mental health, confidence building, and maintaining connections on the blog
Let's do Lunch Network social events
I've set up a Facebook group - Let's do Lunch Network, (for women and femme identifying only). Please join if you'd be interested attending any Let's do Lunch Network socials to start this year. If you'd like to collaborate or support in anyway (e.g offer us a space for a Let's do Lunch Network bruch, talk, workshop at your organisation or host an event in your area) please email me letsdolunchnetwork via the blog
The book
Due to my dyslexia, my creativity is often sparked seeing the end product first, and opposed to the conventional way starting from a foundation and working towards the end product. In many way it leads to hasty decisions, however it's how I've always been (and justifyable now I know it stems my dyslexia!). In 2015 I commissioned a designer to make a mockup of how I thought the Let's do Lunch book cover would look. There's still a long way to go, however I'm keeping it as motivation to make sure I eventually turn this project into that tangible book! No excuses!
So, when are we doing lunch, coffee, afterwork drinks?
