Speaking & Podcasting
Jan is a semi-retired entrepreneur from the UK-tuned business writer and author who is available for remote interviews. Her first book, Scale For Success, was published by Bloomsbury Publishing and now Start for Success comes out in January 2023.
Jan became accustomed to speaking through her own business career and also as one of the first 50 women chosen to represent the UK as a Female Entrepreneurial Ambassador. She made regular appearances on regional TV and Radio and appeared more than once on National TV including BBC’s Newsnight.
Through her own decades in business, she experienced success and failure and talks about both with equal candor. One business was founded when she was a single mum with 2 small children and grew from a kitchen table start to multi-million turnover. Read more about this story here.
Through her writing, she now talks to entrepreneurs all over the world which enables her to keep continually up to date.
Of course, during the pandemic, much of the speaking world became virtual and Jan became a regular podcast guest which she loves.
If you need someone to talk authentically about entrepreneurship and growing a business, please do get in touch.
