Jan Cavelle

Entrepreneur, Speaker and Author

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.
