SMSpouses Live logo

This social media networking event is being held by SSVC for military spouses and partners in Andover on 29 November. Registrations go live from 11 Oct at 4 pm!

Join everyone for a day of networking, all centered around one common theme… Social media.

So, what can you expect from the event? Well, in our usual ‘go big or go home’ style, we thought we’d make it a corker…

10:00 – Arrivals and registration

10:25 – Introduction by Jackie Rautenbach

10:35 – Facebook & Instagram Masterclass by Andy Mihalop and Mollie Pearse

We’re so excited to announce that your keynote speakers for the day will be none other than Andy Mihalop and Mollie Pearse from Facebook.

Yes, you read that right… Facebook!

They’ll tell us all about Facebook & Instagram, in a jam-packed one hour session.

11:35 – “Fuck You, Fear” by Adam Waters

You know how the very best of friends give you the confidence to believe in yourself? Well, we got you – Adam Waters, our very own Director of Digital Content and Training, is going to give you the talk that you need to hear right now.

That dreaded Imposter Syndrome that we keep harping on about? Find out all about it, and how to banish it. Those sneaky thoughts you’ve had about not fitting in in the crazy world of digital? Banished. Legit! We’re talking from experience here, remember?

What else?!

Bring your purse, you’re going to need it.

No, no, not for the sausage rolls – the pastry’s on us – for the shopping event

As IF we could hold a networking event without taking the opportunity to show off how awesome us military spouses are!

In the main networking area – whilst you fill your plate with some delish snacks, and meet the rest of the Squad – you’ll get to browse twenty stalls of pure loveliness, courtesy of some of our small business legends from the group. What did we tell you?! Corker. Of. A. Day.

But guys, what do I do with my kids…?

You bring them, of course! It’s us – we get it, remember?! Littlies are more than welcome, and hopefully the event timings will work around the school times of older children.


This event is for the spouses and partners of HM Armed Forces only. If you are an organisation, business or charity who would like to attend, email [email protected] to be added to the waiting list.
