Jam Tartz Cater­ing Ser­vices is a well es­tab­lished qual­ity driven cater­ing com­pany based in Sud­bury, Suf­folk. How did you choose your cur­rent ca­reer? It choose me, I love peo­ple, food and drink, es­pe­cially Pros­ecco! Be­ing part of peo­ple’s spe­cial func­tions, help­ing them to en­joy, re­lax and cel­e­brate both poignant oc­ca­sions and the most im­por­tant days of their lives is re­ally spe­cial. In your work­ing life­time, how do you per­ceive things have changed for women? I pre­vi­ously worked in a spe­cialised en­gi­neer­ing busi­ness where I was the only woman MD in my sec­tor, I gained recog­ni­tion through an In­sti­tute of Direc­tors Women in Busi­ness Award. I was once asked why we needed spe­cific awards for Women, I per­son­ally felt that it en­cour­aged the next gen­er­a­tion and showed that you could achieve at a high level no mat­ter your gen­der or in­dus­try sec­tor. If I en­cour­aged just one per­son to choose en­gi­neer­ing as a ca­reer op­tion then that would have val­i­date the recog­ni­tion I re­ceived. Who in­spires you most, per­son­ally and pro­fes­sion­ally? On a personal level my mother has al­ways en­cour­aged me to be the best I can be and I hope that I have done that for my chil­dren. Pro­fes­sion­ally I could name Julie Childs, Mary Berry, Mon­ica Galetti and An­gela Hart­nett who have lead the way. I am in­spired by the new Su­san Saran­don movie about Hedy La­marr a women whose ca­reer started as a porn star but as an inventor de­vel­oped what we know now as WiFi. 3-4 The Clois­ters, Church Field Road, Sud­bury, Suf­folk CO10 2YR Tel: 01787 311556 info@jam­tartz.com
