Fab Networking’s Founders

Fab Networking was set up by Claire Healy and Catherine Joce, who both live and work in Hertfordshire and have vast  experience of networking and it’s benefits from first hand experience. Fab networking founders Claire Healy set up community magazine Raring2go! in 2006 to provide ideas about fun stuff to do for local families.  Since its launch, Raring2go! has attracted many loyal readers and has now become “the best free magazine and web site for busy local families”.  Claire’s experience also spans to local radio and she is now a familiar voice on the weekly Parents’ Show on Radio Verulam as well as an organiser of the annual St Albans and District Family Fair. “Networking has always been essential to my businesses and since starting Fab I have met lots of local ladies, many of whom I have learnt from and found extremely supportive in my various ventures. ” Catherine Joce is a career development and personal image coach and works with individuals and groups at all stages in their careers.  She has a corporate background in HR specialising in recruitment and personal development.  Catherine is a qualified image consultant with First Impressions and is passionate about helping people make the best of their opportunities.  “Women are natural networkers but often don’t realise they are doing it!  Since setting up Fab with Claire, I have had the privilege to meet many brilliant, enthusiastic and inspiring women and to see women new to networking develop and grow in confidence. We can all learn from each other and Fab has always been fortunate to attract women who are generous with their support and their willingness to share information”.
