Partner Showcases - 29th September 2020

Cathryn Goddard and Shaniqua Benjamin

Networking is more than just finding clients, it’s about finding your cheerleaders and supporters.

Every day this week we’re Showcasing two members from the I Like Networking Community, to introduce these Network Champions to the rest of our brilliant community, showcase their talent and help them build their network.

Drop them a message on the UP Network via our Virtual Office!

I LIKE NETWORKING are a brilliant platform who support women and non-binary professionals looking for a career in the creative and cultural industry and those who already work in the field but some inspiration and guidance to help them feel stuck.

 

Cathryn Goddard

My name’s Cathryn Goddard. I’m a copywriter and events manager based in Croydon. I have written articles for female-based platforms womantowoman.org and TheCWord around issues that affect women from the femicide in Turkey to the social importance of Ladies’ bathrooms.  In 2020, I won the Jane Austen Literary Foundation prize for a short fiction piece focused on organ donation. I’m currently writing my first novel which focuses on mental health and friendship.

Shaniqua Benjamin

My name’s Shaniqua Benjamin. I’m a spoken word poet, writer and creative workshop facilitator from Croydon. I draw inspiration from my life experiences to create meaningful pieces of writing.  I wrote the lyrics for the London Mozart Players’ Anthem for Peace, and wrote and performed a specially commissioned poem for South London’s biggest arts centre, Fairfield Halls. I have also performed at the Thornton Heath Lights Festival, Field Day Festival and as part of Apples & Snakes’ immersive spoken word show, Rallying Cry.
