Business Mentor, Non-Exec Director and Public Speaker
Having completed her own business journey, experiencing first-hand the whole business cycle from start up through to exit, Sandra shares her knowledge to support small business owners.
After almost 20 years in sales and marketing, in various sectors, Sandra qualified as a Solicitor. She studied law at the University of Warwick and was sponsored by one of the largest international law firms to complete her legal studies at Nottingham Trent Law School. On qualification Sandra worked in the firm’s Business Law teams. In 2007 Sandra started her own law firm, which became a niche Legal 500 Employment Law practice. She merged the firm in 2014. During this period, Sandra also started and sold a Family Law Firm.
Having a background in sales and marketing helped Sandra to grow her business quickly, but she learned the hard way about running a business, especially the people, premises and those all-important financials, making numerous mistakes in the early days, her “learning curves”. Since she stopped practising as a solicitor, she has worked with numerous small businesses helping them with various business growth projects. Sandra now mentors small business owners, holds a number of Non-Exec positions, and uses her unique skill set and her own experience to help them launch new businesses, innovative projects, complete a business sale or merger or attract investment…all within 90 Days.
Sandra has recently started other business ventures using her 90 Day Business Mentor process including the Woman Who… Awards and the Woman Who…Network which now operate in partnership with the Federation of Small Businesses and recognise the achievements of women in business. She also sits on the FSB’s Women in Enterprise Taskforce and is a volunteer business mentor for NatWest Entrepreneurial Spark.
In her spare time, Sandra loves anything Italian including holidays, shoes and Prosecco! She loves walking her dog and watching live sport.
Sandra is currently learning to dance Ballroom and Latin “Strictly” style and is raising vital funds for Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice.
