Premier Mardi was launched in December 2010 by Karen Hockney & Fiona MacLeod. Its simple aim is to bring together like-minded entrepreneurial women of all nationalities, on the Cote d'Azur,with the purpose of exchanging views, experiences and ideas, in order to promote and enable each others' success. Starting and maintaining a business is always challenging, especially if you are doing it in a foreign country. With this in mind, the group provides a forum to ask all the awkward questions, and endeavours to get them answered. It is indeed a truism that 'you are only as good as your last job', therefore positive word of mouth is priceless, which this type of informal networking encourages. The monthly meetings give everyone the opportunity to present any topic and perhaps most importantly, offer ongoing support, as each business evolves. Guest speakers offer insight and advice in an ever changing business climate and our Blog, populated by all members, provides a lively forum for real time news, views and discussion.
