I have recently started up my own business making and selling a wide range of gifts. After having our little boy 2 years ago I decided to take a change in direction of my career and start our being my own boss. Prior to this, after obtaining a law degree (LLB Hons) and a postgrad diploma in legal practice I went on to work in the area of service management and service start up. I spent many years working for a national charity within their service development team. Where I acquired new business tenders and set up and implemented new service provision across the UK. I also spent a couple of years working in Brisbane, Australia, within a similar field, as programme manager for service provision. With my somewhat varied background, and wide ranging skill sets, I felt that it was time to utilise these to implement my own business plans. The launch of my company 'Special Moments Gifts' in June 2012, has allowed me to also develop my creative side further, so I now have the best of both worlds - with creativity and productivity now working in synergy!
