The Ladies Big in Business Lunch
The next Ladies' Big in Business Lunch will take place at Kingsholm Stadium on Wednesday 10th September and the guest speaker will be the hugely successful Janis Sinton - Managing Director of TasteTech.
Jill Douglas will again provide her experience as master of ceremonies for the event, and will chat to Janis about her career and experiences.
TasteTech is a niche company, operating globally in excess of 30 countries, specialising in the manufacture of controlled release food flavourings and ingredients. Founded in 1992, we continue to be a creative pioneer in the field of microencapsulation technology, providing solutions to manufacturers worldwide. We are highly respected by our customers globally for our specialist expertise and service delivery.
Janis Sinton became MD in 2007 after her husband and founder of TasteTech tragically passed away following a short illness. Whereas previously Janis had been the company secretary, buyer and accountant, she became managing director overnight.
This transition has been the greatest challenge for her and TasteTech. Having no previous experience of actually running a business, Janis took up the reins and worked with senior managers to plot the future.
Extremely ambitious targets of doubling turnover and increasing net profit to over 10% in 5 years were set and achieved. Now in our 22nd year, a significant milestone for any company, Janis has grown TasteTech to be a truly global company demonstrating excellence in exporting.
Events at Gloucester Rugby are proudly sponsored by Tayabali Tomlin - the club's official event partner.
