WHO’S BEHIND THE SCENES?

Business In The City was set up by me, Katrina. I’ve been self-employed for six years with my own business Cariad Creative, where I help small businesses get more leads from their website, with professional and effective web design and online marketing support. As a business owner, I was tired and fed up of trying to find the advice I wanted. I was looking for one place that I could go to to get everything I needed, in a way I could easily understand without being bamboozled (it’s not that hard to be honest!)

Katrina, founder of Business In The City

Running around after my 3-year-old daughter doesn’t leave me with much time so I wanted everything in one place. News, advice, and local businesses that I knew I could go to for help. My husband is self-employed too so I live the business owners life day in and day out. The good, the bad, the ugly – we’ve seen it all and are still here to tell the tale! 

It is my aim to share as much valuable content as I can as frequently as possible, making it easy for you to keep up-to-date while building your local network. I want to shake off the boring, dull image of business news and create a place that is jargon-free, fun and colourful. That’s what’s at the heart of Business In The City!
