8.00pm How To Build A Business - Rayner Davies

I started as a small ironing service from home, back in 2008. Through hard work and enterprise, the business expanded into providing domestic and commercial cleaning services.

In 2010, I joined forces with my husband, Ashley Davies, who had an extensive background in financial services - and so A&R Cleaning Services was born.

As the client base expanded into commercial work, A&R became known for their personable, family-run approach, professional standards and a passion for the cleaning industry. Clients say that passion makes us different from the large corporates, and we’ve kept that ethos with us as we’ve grown.

" I'm very excited to share my experience of how from very humble beginnings I established an award winning family run business from home and how I built that business into a business that is now heading towards a £2M turnover, employing 190 staff"

" I'm excited to share with you how central your self-belief is to your success or failure in business. If you believe you can you will, if you believe you can't you won't. I aim to equip you with tips on how to build a belief system that will help you build a successful you that builds a successful business"

I AM WOMAN is a coming home!

I AM WOMAN was founded in Cardiff and I have only ever run I AM WOMAN outside of Bridgend. However my home town is Bridgend, I went to school there and so when I decided to move home I never dreamt I would be starting an I AM WOMAN Business Academy Group there!

It was one of those occurrences,  I had a chance meeting with Bridgend Business Forum the result being the launch of Bridgend I AM WOMAN in Partnership with the Bridgend Business Forum, to support women in business in Bridgend and the surrounding areas.

Our hotel choice, was The Coed y Mwyster are now Sponsors of Bridgend I AM WOMAN. Following our launch, we are so blessed to be able to have our monthly events there on the second Tuesday of every month.
