“From Council Estate to Buck House – How a Moral Streak Created One of the UK’s Leading Comms Firms”
K-Club Women’s Business Lunch Event Speaker – Tuesday 26th February 2019
In support of Forever Manchester and kindly hosted by Barclays in their newly opened Eagle Lab in Albert Square between 12.30-2pm.
Sandy Lindsay MBE
Chair of Tangerine Group
Our February guest speaker, Sandy Lindsay MBE, grew up on one of the UK’s worst council estates and attended one of the worst performing secondary schools in the country. She’ll talk us through how being ‘accused’ of having a moral streak led her to create what would become one of the UK’s top performing, most awarded communications agencies and to her being honoured by the Queen and named IoD Director of the Year!
Sandy launched Tangerine in 2002, which is now employs more than 60 people, supporting market leading brands including Pizza Hut, M&S Bank, Jewson and Ideal Standard. Fifteen years later, fulfilling a promise she made when she launched the business, Sandy placed 64% of Tangerine’s shares into an Employee Owned Trust and turned Tangerine’s employees into partners.
Sandy is passionate about creating quality career opportunities for young people – her latest job creation programme – The Juice Academy digital marketing apprenticeship – has created more than 300 jobs in leading businesses across the North West.
She chairs skills groups for the North West Institute of Directors and the North West Business Leadership Team, is a national Ambassador for Apprenticeships and a member of the North West Business Leadership Council of Teach First. She is also Vice-Chair of Forever Manchester and a Non-exec Director of Northcoders.
Forever Manchester is Sandy’s chosen charity on this occasion and they will benefit from a donation of 25% of ticket sales from this event.
