Beyondtheschoolrun was set up on the belief that there was a wealth of un-tapped talent amongst the parent community that was under utilised due to the restrictions of the 9-6 working day.  The launch of the first ever Beyondtheschoolrun Ambassador programme couldn’t have been greater proof of just that and we are really excited to announce our team for 2017.  Such an incredible group of women, mothers, talent, who are finding their way in caring for their children whilst utilising their talents and growing fantastic businesses.  For Beyondtheschoolrun this is a big step to have a team on board, to help prepare the website and the BTSR offering in time for the launch of our book in August 2017.

So, here they are and we are so incredibly grateful to them all.  This is the start of an exciting journey together.
