Course Trainer: Jo Garden
Jo has been a part-time Business Advisor within Enterprise Agencies for over 12 years. Since the early 1990’s she has also been self-employed, during which time she established 5 quite diverse businesses. Three have been sold and are still in operation.
Jo’s first business started after she became redundant from a 16-year career with a pharmaceutical company. She then attended some of the very early Menta business planning workshops and has kept in touch with Menta over all these years. Her presentation style tends to be non-academic (being diagnosed with Dyslexia in her 20’s!) and she encourages a simple approach to moving a business idea forward
