After I had my son in 2016 I felt like I had lost my identity, and after a decade as an event manager in the corporate world I discovered I wasn’t able to go back to my job part time…
I noticed a gap in the market for events specifically designed for mums – mums who were just like me who still liked to go out and socialise and drink the odd glass of prosecco mums who had a career and independence and didn’t want to loose their sense of self just because they became a ‘mum’ – so I used my expertise to set up milknfizz, an events company with the aim to connect like-minded mums through bespoke events and thoughtful experiences… all with a touch of luxury, of course!
It’s been an incredible journey – not only am I doing something I love, but milknfizz is a hit! The events have been a real success, and I’ve met so many mums who are either thinking of setting up a business or are already running one, but find juggling kids/work a challenge at times.
Well, this led to the exciting next chapter of my business. Introducing milknbizz – a boutique members club supporting entrepreneurial mums in their start-up journey and beyond.
I love meeting and working with people, when I first set up I found it really tough working on my own; I missed the buzz of an office and support from colleagues and friends: which is one of the main reasons I set up milknbizz I wanted to meet other mums in the same position as me, I enjoy supporting other women in their start up journey and seeing people grow and accomplish their goals, basically I love bringing people together, that’s my thang 🙌.
Don’t get me started on the dreaded ‘work/life balance’…

"This was one of the best organised events I’ve been involved in. Danielle is a star and she knows how to bring people together in the name of parenting, laughter and prosecco"
Steph Douglas (Founder of Don’t Buy Her Flowers)
"I loved speaking at Danielle’s event, it was brilliantly organised and whether people came on their own or in a group, everyone mixed and chatted. Amazing things happen when women come together, and it always feels good to hear the things that make us laugh as well as cry. None of us are doing this on our own"
Ellie Gibson & Helen Thorn (The Scummy Mummies)
"We loved working with Danielle, she is highly professional, super organised, and just a lovely person to work with! We would highly recommend Danielle to anyone looking to put on a polished, fun event"
