Author Hub

If you have written a book then I am pretty sure you want to change the lives of many and The Authors Hub at Maximise is the perfect opportunity. The Hub is a room upstairs at the Maximise conference where you will be able to confidentially and easily speak with interested participants. Your books will also be promoted downstairs as part of the Maximise welcome table and so you benefit from two promotional opportunities on the day.

Plus at Lunch time 12 noon all the Authors will be interviewed giving you the opportunity to tell your story as an author, why you wrote the book and who the book is for. It is our intention that the authors will support each other and use social media to raise awareness and promote each other during this talk and throughout the day.

You will also have opportunity for 2 hours to man the table downstairs to be amongst the hub of the activities in the main hall. There are add incentives of free coffee upstairs that encourage the conference attendees to wonder upstairs.

This event is an event that brings together a thriving community of women in business who support each other on line and face to face all year. It also serves as a great opportunity for locals to purchase Christmas gifts and they have aspirations to gain 400 attendees this year.

If you have a book and a message then join us this year and let us support you to get it out there.

See our authors and publishers in person at the Maximise Conference in the Author Hub on the first floor in the Oval room.

Meet our authors:

Angela De Souza
I am a mother of four amazing children, three cats, one grandchild and married to a very handsome Brazilian man! In my spare time, I am an author, speaker, trainer and business mentor. My favourite thing to do is play my piano and sing (loudly and out of tune I’m afraid) as well as go for long walks or short runs!

I Did it in My Pyjamas
Angela says there are few rules when it comes to setting up and growing a successful business, and even some of those can be broken if they stifle your creativity or approach to working. In this book, she shares her journey of how she built the Women’s Business Club from nothing to the huge national success it is today, nuts, bolts and all. Angela has written a book that is quite unlike other books about starting and growing a business – though packed with tips and advice it is not so much of a ‘how to do it’ book but rather a ‘how I did it’. In a style that is both accessible and refreshing, she covers topics such as facing opposition, raising children, tackling fear and managing depression while building a business. The book is candid, honest and packed with tips on how she did it in her pyjamas!


Sheryl Andrews
I am mother of a blended family of 5 with 3 grandchildren due this year and married to my soulmate, which sounds idyllic and it is. But it was not all a bed of roses to get here. A difficult first marriage, that left me a shell of the woman I knew I had the potential to be, weight problem and failing coaching business meant that I became consumed with self-doubt and overwhelm. Today I am pleased to say life is very different and I get to do more of what I love and discover each and every day more things that I love to do. 

Manage your critic – From Overwhelm to Clarity in 7 Steps
This book starts with a brief memoir – Sheryl is honest and willing to be vulnerable to ensure you never feel like it is just you then it is followed up with a practical guide to teach you how to listen to yourself and others without judgement. Step by step you learn what kind of questions to ask, what to ask questions of and how to spot patterns. Sheryl shares models that make sense of your autopilot responses and practical ways to change the behaviours and stories that no longer serve you to live your best life.


Karen Williams
An avid reader and cinema goer, it’s not surprising that I love books and stories. In business, I am the Book Mentor at Librotas. I support coaches, consultants, therapists and experts to write, publish and market a non-fiction book or memoir that helps them to build their business, raise their credibility and attract more clients. Personally, I love a bit of adventure, enjoy travelling, and have been known to jump out of a plane and walk on hot coals!

Book Marketing Made Simple and other books
I am the author of five business books. By accident, I wrote my first book, The Secrets of Successful Coaches in 2009, and despite saying never again, I published my fifth book, Book Marketing Made Simple in 2017. Many people decide to write a book but fail to think about how they’re going to promote and sell it. So in this book, I focus on everything you need to do to market your book from the day you start to write it until way after your launch – and ensure that it is the ultimate business building tool. Through all of my books I aim to inspire business owners to take action, turn their book dreams into reality, and support them further through one-to-one mentoring and events in the UK and Spain.
