Female lead

Entrepreneurs and women thinking of setting up their own companies gathered at The Finance Hub on The Pantiles to hear the business stories of inspirational local businesswomen at the January Make It Your Business, Tunbridge Wells event.

Keynote speaker Paula Quazi explained how she harnessed her previous expertise as UK marketing director at Unilever to grow smol, which is based in Paddock Wood, into one of the largest eco brands for household cleaning products in the UK.

Providing an ethical alternative for consumers who care was also a key theme from panellists Holly Watson and Charlotte Bowyer, founders of The Zero Waste Café and Emporium on The Pantiles. Family law specialist Alison Green explained how Mackrell Solicitors have successfully created a positive culture to attract and retain the best talent. Wendy Read shared some eye-opening insights into how badly some companies fail when it comes to establishing a nurturing, inclusive culture – inspiring her to set up HR Revolution to help businesses get it right.

Siobhan Stirling, founder of Sharp Minds Communications, who chaired the event, said: “We’re so grateful to The Finance Hub for providing such a welcoming venue to enable Tunbridge Wells women to inspire and motivate one another.”
