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.

Gloucester have been in good form in recent weeks, but Backs Coach Tim Taylor knows that the Cherry and Whites will have to be at their best on Thursday evening (kick off 7:45pm) against a Stade Rochelais side flying high this season.
Speaking to GRTV after the bonus point win over Bristol, back row Lewis Ludlow revealed that despite a tricky first half, Gloucester backed their skills to come through, a faith that was evident in a strong second half showing.
Willi Heinz scored Gloucester's second try as the Cherry and Whites overturned a disappointing first 40 minutes and 0-6 half time deficit, to earn a 26-18 Aviva Premiership victory over Bristol Rugby on Saturday.
It's the first Gloucester-Bristol derby at Kingsholm in over eight years this Saturday (kick off 4:30pm) and, previewing the game with the local media this week, Defence Coach Jonny Bell stressed that, with both teams in the bottom half of the table, they both need the points.
Speaking to the local media this week, Gloucester front rower John Afoa knows the challenge ahead this week against Bristol, and calls on the Cherry and Whites to make the most of home advantage as a determined squad look to bounce back from a narrow loss to Saracens.
Tom Savage speaks to GRTV and the local media as Gloucester went down by 24-20 at Saracens on Sunday afternoon. The second row was disappointed with the result, despite a strong showing from the hosts.
Gloucester's much changed side had to overcome conceding an early try on Thursday evening, but responded in style to down Stade Rochelais by 35 points to 14 in the European Rugby Challenge Cup and set up a mouthwatering return fixture next weekend.
After taking 11 points from their last three games in the Aviva Premiership, including bonus point wins against Wasps and Bristol, Gloucester will be looking to continue their good form when they welcome La Rochelle to Kingsholm.
