In less than 4 years, those three words describe how our guest speaker took one idea and started not only a business with a global outlook but a whole new career too.

She has taken her ideas from Ipswich to the US, UK and Asia and is excited about a positive future ahead for us all, particularly opportunities for women to grow in business.
