With 15 years of experience, Stacey has worked for award-winning agencies across Cheshire, from The Hut Group to Space 48.

Stacey made the leap from full-time employment to business owner during a period we all found challenging: Lockdown. So, after a period of uncertainty and homeschooling, real5 Digital was founded with the full support of Andy Hibbert, founder of real5 Networking. This business would rise above the empty promises of the digital marketing milieu, salesmen and Stacey’s own experiences of working in a male-dominated industry.

Central to Stacey’s journey is the indispensable role played by real5 Networking. Within this vibrant community of like-minded professionals, she found both support and invaluable opportunities for growth and collaboration. The ethos of mutual assistance and collective wisdom within real5 Networking has significantly contributed to Stacey’s entrepreneurial acumen and success.
