Bev Ridyard Mum first. Savvy marketer, growing entrepreneur and lifestyle photographer second. Love helping others grow. Always trying to be brave.

Hi! I'm an enthusiastic, driven and passionate thirty something year old who was put on this planet to help other people. My passion is to experience, share and record happiness with other people through the art of photography. It's more than just taking photos, you must display them. If you think about a traditional photographer, rip the rule book up and that's me. You kinda have to meet me to see how I roll!

Prior to that I’ve had 12 years sales and marketing experience for Marks and Spencer Money, Halifax and Sainsburys Banks, Bupa and most recently Manchester Airport Group, culminating in becoming Head of Airline Marketing aged 29. I'm also a proud Alumni member of The Marketing Academy, a Trustee and governor for a special needs school, a member of The Learning Advisory Group for the Chartered Institute of Marketing and run a local book club for mummies to inspire us all to find time to read. I love a good meal around the table, my fabulous friends and family and chocolate. But my proudest achievements are my two beautiful children, Joseph and Victoria. If you truly want it, you can achieve your dreams.

I'd love to hear what you think about my blogs so please do get in touch. You can find all of my contact details at the end of each blog.
