We're proud to share this testimonial from one of our amazing clients, Gail Didier from Social With a Twist. Gail created a business where she can help women get the social life they want, and she also helps women who want to increase their self-esteem, make positive change in their life and get better results. Her business is all about connecting women for friendship and in business, as opposed to matchmaking but Gail has found SmartMatchApp a great platform. They look ahead with humor and the ability to put things into perspective; the glass is half full. They are curious and continuously interested in their surroundings. They enjoy good wine, are often gather in large groups, have fun together. More information about Social With a Twist is below.
Social with a Twist is all about women making new female friends and having great women to socialise with. All events have between six and 20 people with ages ranging from 20s to 45+. You'll get to sit with people in your age group who you're likely to click with. Social with a Twist is ideal for you if you:
Wish you had a better social life but are not sure how to get it
Want to go out but your friends are all too busy with boyfriends, hubbies or bubbies
Would like to do things like, lunches, drinks, movies, high tea, coffee with people that you click with
Want to go away for a weekend/day trip/holiday but have no one to go with
Simply want to expand your social circle

WHY I WANT TO HELP YOU
I've always been told that I'm good at connecting people so decided to put this skill to good use and help others to get the social life they want. I also believe it is very important for general well-being to have people to spend time with and socialise. I created Social with a Twist to connect women and also to give them a range of fabulous social events to go to.
WHY I WANT TO HELP YOU IF YOU'RE SINGLE
I loved my single life and I realised that was mainly because I had lots of girlfriends to go out with. I know that some women find it difficult to meet people to socialise with in Auckland so I want to help you to change this so you can be one of those women who enjoys your single life instead of wishing it away.
BUSINESS BREAKFAST WITH A TWIST
This event is for business/professional women who want to meet like-minded women. This is a relaxed event where you get a chance to meet smart, friendly women over a nice breakfast in an inviting friendly environment. The group is made up of regulars and newbies. There is some networking and an opportunity to get new business, but the emphasis is on organic networking as opposed to the "hard sell". There are also women who simply want to have a chat and connect with other business/professional women.
Business Breakfast with a Twist is a regular event at the Stamford Plaza that starts at 7:30am. Don't worry if you're running late as it is buffet style breakfast. Event fee is $35 and includes full cooked and continental breakfast selection plus tea/coffee/juices. I use Meet Up as my RSVP platform so please click for info and to RSVP.
WHAT THE LADIES SAY ABOUT BUSINESS WITH A TWIST EVENTS
I enjoy coming to Gail’s “Business with a Twist’ events. I have been coming to the breakfasts and some of the other functions for around a year now. They are very well organised, and I have found its a great way to meet new friends and potential customers. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming!
Rae Collins - Independent Consultant - Norwex - “Improving Quality of Life"
Business Breakfast with a Twist is a great way to meet other women from all different types of business background. I have met corporates, Dr’s, Life Coaches, Artists, Sports and Nutrient specialists and the list goes on. I believe that we choose to do business with people who we like, trust and respect and Business Breakfast with a Twist is great at helping make those meaningful connections in a relaxed environment.
The venue is very central, the breakfast is great as there is a wide selection that caters for everyone and there is a good mixture of regular and newcomers to network with. If you’re looking for a networking group that is less formal than the normal then I would highly recommend Business Breakfast with a Twist.
