In 2005 I gave up a successful career with Vodafone Corporate. My husband and I and moved to France to restore a 17th Century farmhouse. When I was not working on the house, I taught myself French and began to learn web development. My ﬁrst website was for a holiday property and I loved every minute. France sold for a proﬁt and we came back to the UK in 2008.
Over the next 10 years I learned to build complex websites and grew my business into the successful web design business it is today.
One of the things I really miss about corporate life is the pat on the back from a colleague or boss for a job well done. Positive client feedback is a great accolade but it’s different. Being a Finalist here gives me a sense of being part of something really big again, officially recognised as a successful business. It is the best feeling in the world! (Tracey Rickard)

Gallagher are delighted to support the Woman Who … Export Award, for the second consecutive year; it is very important for the UK that there is a focus on this part of our economy. The international insurance market is complex with regulations differing by country and any business looking to trade internationally will need to be sure their insurance cover meets all legal and commercial requirements and will respond should the worst happen. We are happy to help support all businesses that are planning to, or may already, export overseas via our SME Export Insurance Product. (Debbie Rush, Coventry Office, Gallagher)
