About this event

Join us for an inspiring fireside chat with Jan Tinsley.

Jan has enjoyed over 40 years in business as an entrepreneur and business owner growing, developing and selling businesses in a range of sectors including Hospitality, Financial Services, Dental Health, Retail Manufacturing and Property. Whilst still involved in some of those businesses, she is enjoying helping others as a Certified Business Coach Consultant and Mentor. Having overcome many challenges, including the recessions of the early 80’s and 2008, as well as interest rates of 17% and market collapse, Jan is keen to share her motivation for powering through adversity, optimising opportunities and championing personal development.

With her Business, Marketing and Master NLP credentials, Jan is going to share the ups and downs of being at the coal face of business, with her real life stories of The Entrepreneurs Journey in this fireside chat hosted by Shelley Langan-Newton.
