It’s a privilege to be attending Bread & Butter and to be working with young businesses in the industry. We have so much potential in UK food manufacturing and I’m looking forward to sharing my experience

We have so much potential in UK food manufacturing and I’m looking forward to sharing my experience, and some of the mistakes I made along the way! I believe that’s what makes me a successful business coach; I’ve been there, worked through those tough times and grown a business from the ground up. I know how hard it is, but I also have some great formulas for success, especially in conquering those all-important new markets.”
