LOCAL businesswoman Sandra Garlick has been appointed to a national taskforce which aims to promote women in enterprise.
The taskforce has been set up by business organisation Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) to champion the needs of UK’s female SME owners.
Ms Garlick will join 14 other small business leaders from across the UK to set out the recommendations of FSB’s Women in Enterprise report released earlier this year.
Ms Garlick started her own law firm and grew the business to be one of the leading Legal 500 firms in Coventry & Warwickshire for Employment Law until she merged the business in 2014.
She also founded the Woman Who…Awards in early 2016, created to inspire women in business to celebrate their achievements, to gain confidence and to recognise their own abilities.
She said: “I’m absolutely delighted to join FSB’s Women in Enterprise Taskforce as I am keen to continue to influence the women in the business agenda. I am looking forward to representing businesses from Coventry, Warwickshire & Solihull to ensure that local women have a voice. Through my work as a business growth consultant, in delivering the Woman Who….Awards and now in my role on FSB’s Women in Enterprise Taskforce, I am sure I can help women feel confident and to succeed in business.”
