Anna Freeman – Vice President and Membership Executive


Anna Freeman – Vice President and Membership Executive


Anna founded her business, Anna’s Parties – Singles Events and Anna Freeman One-to-One Introductions in 1997.  Being single herself, she is well-placed in understanding her clientele and their hopes of finding a life–partner.  She is a qualified counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy.  This training supports her work and gives her a special insight into helping her clients.  She organises parties and speed-dating events, along with personal one-to-one introductions, and as a result she is adept at bringing people together.

Anna was born in Cheltenham and brought up in London.  To quote her “I have been travelling up and down the A40 all my life visiting grandparents as a child/young adult and now visiting relatives in the south-east”.  She has worked in London, Cheltenham and the Middle-East – Muscat, Oman.   Now settled in Cheltenham with her daughter, she is here to stay for the foreseeable future.  She enjoys working for the Chamber as Membership–Executive which gives her the opportunity to use her considerable networking skills to raise membership numbers;  once more, to quote her “They are all such pleasant people to spend time with!”.

The support and networking opportunities that the Chamber offered to me as director of a new business really appealed. The board and members I spoke to seemed really interested in my business.
