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.

Speaking to GRTV after the game, Backs Coach Tim Taylor was happy with the squad as they cruised to victory over Treviso. The result wasn't in doubt, but the Cherry and Whites laboured to secure a crucial try bonus point.
Speaking to the local media this week, Gloucester Rugby centre Matt Scott is excited to take the field again as the Cherry and Whites look to build on the win in Bayonne when Treviso come to Kingsholm this Saturday.
Defence Coach Jonny Bell admitted this week that the European Rugby Challenge Cup victory in Bayonne was a welcome one, stressed that Benetton Treviso will pose a tough test on Saturday at Kingsholm but that Gloucester are determined to deliver in front of their own fans.
Motu Matu'u is looking to make up for lost time this week as the Cherry and Whites head to Basque Country to take on Bayonne in the European Rugby Challenge Cup opener. The Samoan hooker made his first appearance in the jersey last weekend, and is hoping to contribute to the team this weekend.
Gloucester's attentions turn to Europe this weekend as they travel to Bayonne for their opening fixture of this season's European Rugby Challenge Cup. Forwards Coach Trevor Woodman told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will be aiming to top their pool as they've done for the past two seasons, but is well aware of how tough it is to win in France.
The Gloucester Rugby Half Term Rugby Camps got off to a great start on Monday morning, with over 60 young rugby players braving the chilly weather to experience a great day of skills, learning and fun thanks to the Gloucester Rugby Community Department.
