Welcome to MMB South Yorkshire & Derbyshire

Well this is exciting!!! We are finally alive and kicking, MMB South Yorkshire and Derbyshire. I could not be more proud to be the Editor of this region and the local brand ambassador to all things MMB. I got involve with MMB after attending an event at which our Chief Editor Abbie Colman was speaking. Something she said really hit home about working mums and following that event I emailed her to say how she had had an impact on me. And if I could do anything to help boost the MMB brand then count me in. Fast forward 18 months and never did I think I would be writing this letter! But the world works in mysterious ways I guess.

So who am I?

Well for those of you that don’t know me my name is Lisa Betsworth and I have been in and around the Recruitment industry for to many years to mention.  I have always worked in the South Yorkshire & Derbyshire Market and across a number of different sectors. I am married to Richard and we have a 2 year old daughter called Mia.

As well as MMB Magazine I run a Staffing Solutions business so I would like to think I know a thing or 2 bout being a working parent and the roller-coaster that is being just that.

For me, MMB Magazine is a passion but I also see it as something I wish was in  place when I was pregnant with Mia. All the advice from credible professionals across our region rather than cold generic mass produced information is so valuable. Abbie and I are keen to push the MMB Magazine brand as far as we can and this magazine is only a small part of it.

We regularly run events aimed at working parents of all levels and I hope to see as many of you as possible at one of our events. This is your forum people so get involved. Would you be interested in writing for us? Would you like to have a platform to shout about the fact your business is a supporter of flexible working? We can help with this so get in touch.

As I have said I hope to see as many of you as possible at one of our events but please feel free to get in touch with any suggestions you may have for content and we will do what we can,

Thanks for the support,
