2017 Reflections From The Northern Niche


It’s that time of year isn’t it when we start reflecting on what has happened throughout the last year? We have some reflections before 2018 gets well underway.

Declan and I would like to say a big, big thank you to each and every person who takes the time out to read The Northern Niche. We are still amazed by how much it continues to grow.

We’ve talked about some amazing events and showcased some fabulous Northern businesses throughout the year. We particularly enjoyed sampling some of the region’s newest culinary concepts.


We launched our marketing consultancy business, The Social Gene in July and we are very happy to say we have worked and are working with some exciting and diverse businesses. Often it’s difficult for businesses to figure their way through the digital minefield and so we create simple and effective plans to help them navigate their path as well as managing or training all things social media.

Our #ThisNorthernGirlCan campaign goes from strength to strength. If you haven’t joined the private Facebook group yet then you really should. We have almost 1,200 women and some men all networking and supporting each other.

We’d love to see you there!

I was also extremely honoured to become a Northern Power Women ambassador for Teesside.  I’m just settling into my role and looking forward to bringing you lots of exciting developments together with founder, Simone Roche and the team.

Stay posted as we continue to share our news …  for now we are extremely grateful and thankful.


Here’s to a fabulous 2018 for everyone up North .. Happy New Year From Sharon & Declan!
