My name is Lyndsey, I'm a qualified Performance Coach and Consultant, and I created Connected Brighton because I needed connection. I'm born and bred Brighton, have fabulous friends, but our lives are very different. I didn't have children when my mates did, I got divorced when they didn't, and it changed my social circle exponentially. Add to that a break up, a redundancy and a pandemic where everyone became pretty insular. All of which left me wondering who I was going to spend my time with when the world opened up.
Turns out I was not alone.
I've met so many amazing people through creating Connected Brighton with similar stories, who are local or new to the area, in singles and couples, who have been through life changes and who were also looking for connection.
It all began when the first newsletter was sent in March 2021, with our first event being a picnic in the April 2021 lockdown. Then under the outdoor sports rules we played Petanque, then groups of six were allowed inside and eventually we had dinners together as the rules eased. Within a year we became a Visit Brighton partner and a trusted social network for personal and professional connections, running 2-3 events a week that support local businesses and bring people together looking to socialise, network and date.
The response has been overwhelming - check out all our press coverage here - and the icing on the cake has been winning RWC Entrepreneur of the Year 2022!
As well as building Connected Brighton I continue to coach others going through change in life and business. Because I turned my life around after an IVF miscarriage which led to my divorce, and life was pretty dark. But creating this business has been the making of me, pushing myself to do something completely different, at the worst possible time (hello social events company in a socially distanced pandemic) turned out to be the best possible thing.
Helping others to achieve success in their lives motivates me to make a difference through my business and my coaching. And after an amazing two years growing this business I'm excited to see what 2023 brings! I'd love to take Connected into other cities, get around every independent venue in the city and meet more fabulous people!
