ITEC North East were very proud today to welcome Jenna Meek to talk to staff and students about her businesses and the stories behind them. Jenna, originally from Bishop Auckland has featured in Forbes magazine as an inspiring woman in business successfully starting and running several cosmetic based firms including The Shrine and recently Refy – a new product range selling in shops such as the infamous Selfridges.

Jenna talked about logistics, the power of social media and the company’s digital footprint – how to keep motivated during tough times and what behaviours and attributes make a staff member a star!

We hope our staff and learners enjoyed Jenna’s down to earth approach and how she has not lost sight of her starting point or the lesson learned during her early days as an apprentice herself.

Thank you Jenna!
