Our speakers are:
Ruth was studying chemistry at Warwick University, when an illness (narcolepsy) forced her into 3 years of needing full time care by her husband. Unable to leave the house alone, due to frequent collapsing, she made costume jewellery which she sold to friends. This inspired her to teach herself silver smithing and lace making, before she discovered the two could be combined. Ruth completed her degree in July 2016, before beginning full time work on her business, Ruth Mary Jewellery.
Jane joined a company as a PA and then bought the business!
As MD and owner, she brought strength to tackle change, survived through a recession and improved quality of service, bringing in new opportunities. Jane increased turnover within the business fourfold and went on to sell the business after 14 years.
Jane’s talk will inspire you to achieve your goals and overcome obstacles that will see you succeed in your career.
Emma Heathcote-James set up The Little Soap Company in 2008. Its been a roller coaster journey since then taking Emma from making soap at the kitchen table to selling hundreds of thousands of bars in the national supermarkets. Little Soap Company was the first company to be taken on by Waitrose within its first year of trading.
Her accolades include being a finalist for the Worcestershire Woman of the Year, winning the Hereford & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2015, Winning Coventry Telegraph Entrepreneur of the Year 2016 and collecting other industry awards along the way for her increasing range of products.
