Our January Women in Business Speakers

Sue...Sue Tonks, Managing Director, HydroVeg Kit & Winner of the 2018 New Business of the Year Awards at the Coventry Telegraph Business Awards

The idea for HydroVeg Kits was born, or rather grown, in a back garden in the Midlands, the brainchild of enthusiastic entrepreneur and entirely amateur (her words!) gardener, Sue Tonks. In 2018, Sue and her company were recognised at the Coventry Telegraph Business Awards as New Business of the Year.

Kathryn Clarke, Founder & Director, Signature Sales Support & Representation and Chamber Board Member
In 2014, Kathryn founded Signature Sales Support & Services to create a role for herself to provide an exciting challenge, continue to work in an industry she has enthusiasm and passion for and the work life balance required for a sustainable future. Kathryn's previous roles included Team Manager for a busy travel sales call centre, Reservations and Revenue Manager for a 400 bedroom Birmingham city centre hotels to Sales and Business Development. In November 2018, Kathryn joined the Board of the Chamber of Commerce.
