In late 2019, Melanie and Esther were at the Women’s Inspire Network event as attendees which was hosted by Samantha Kelly AKA Tweetinggoddess. Whilst mingling and laughing with friends there, Sarah Gray of SOS Events suggested that they might start working together as she thought they would be a good pairing. Then she suggested doing a podcast!
In all the years they had known each other (2015), they had never directly worked together and all of sudden this seemed like the greatest idea ever. The two ladies promptly sat down at the nearest bar and in the space of one afternoon the concept of The Monday Morning Marketing Podcast was crafted. Over the intervening weeks a website was started, social media handles created and a show list of topic headings and guests was set up.
First Podcast set out - initially on Zoom and doggy headset mics 6th of January 2020

The story of getting their first sponsor is quite amusing. The company emailed the website directly but initially believed to be a hoax. After numerous phone calls and checking who had messaged them, the two dimwits finally understood that someone ACTUALLY wanted to sponsor them.
From October to December 2020 they were sponsored by AgoraPulse UK and Ireland team and the ladies were both invited to become Brand Ambassadors. Neither of them were daft and said yes!
