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.

With such a short turnaround between the two games, and Gloucester looking to reintegrate several players into the line-up after the Autumn international series, Tom Savage told GRTV that the Cherry and Whites will keep changes to a minimum for the European Rugby Challenge Cup game in Zebre on Saturday.
Gloucester travel to Italy this weekend to take on Zebre in Round Four of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. The Cherry and Whites defeated the Italian side 35-10 last Sunday, but Director of Rugby David Humphreys is looking for an improved performance in the return fixture.
Skipper Billy Twelvetrees, speaking to GRTV after the 35-10 over Zebre, was happy with the bonus point win over the Italian side but admitted Gloucester will need to tighten up for the return fixture in Parma.
Matt Kvesic was a try scorer and recipient of the Man of the Match award in Sunday's 35-10 European Rugby Challenge Cup win over Zebre. He praised the Italian side for their spirited opposition and admitted that next week's return game will be a tough one.
After a tense opening half hour in Parma, the game turned just before half time as the home team had David Odiete red carded and Gloucester took full advantage, running in three second half tries to secure the bonus point and the victory over Zebre by 32 points to 16.
