The Media Hub is turning
three! The southeast’s leading networking group for media professionals
is celebrating the occasion with a dazzling summer party at the Botanist
in Marlow at 7pm on Thursday, 14th July. Around 100 media professionals
and VIP guests are expected to attend the special event at the chic new
Marlow eatery and cocktail bar, which is owned by the award winning New
World Trading Company. Guests will be invited to take part in the ultimate
cocktail adventure – a special cocktail masterclass – before having a
social catch-up, partying and listening to the live music.
“We are delighted to
be having our 3rd birthday party at the Botanist – it really is the
icing on the (birthday) cake!” says Sarah Rodi, Media Hub co-founder,
print journalist and editor of Mums About Cookham.

Media Hub’s summer party follows a recent workshop on “how to go viral
with online videos” at the Bel and the Dragon in Cookham, with member,
broadcast journalist and video producer Marissa Holden.
“I find the Hub a really
good way of making new contacts within my industry. And the workshops are
fab to develop your skills with help from the members themselves,” says
The Hub has welcomed an
impressive line-up of guest speakers including Home Secretary Theresa May,
Olympic gold medallist Adrian Moorhouse and Click reporter Dan Simmons.
“Great things often
come from humble beginnings,” says Media Hub co-founder Sarah Parfitt.
“Our first ever Media Hub meeting three 3 years ago involved a handful
of media professionals having a social catch-up over a few drinks, but
since then, the Hub has evolved, and we now also offer workshops and
“I think that what our
members value the most is meeting up with other media professionals in a
relaxed, friendly and fun environment – many of our colleagues work from
home and although we are all connected through social media these days,
you can’t beat a face-to-face meeting!”
