Sandra Garlick MBE: Former Solicitor, Mentor, Public Speaker & Author
Sandra’s journey spans a number of decades and she’s worked in a variety of sectors.
After starting her working life teaching herself to type in typing school, Sandra qualified as a Solicitor in her late 30s, whilst bringing up her two sons as a single parent.
In 2007, Sandra started her own law firm and soon became the ‘go-to’ person in her field. The firm became a niche Legal 500 Employment & Business Law practice. Sandra merged the firm in 2014.
Having a background in sales and marketing helped Sandra grow her business quickly, worked on her personal brand and always ensured that her profile was active. She soon secured positions on various Committees and Boards.
Sandra mentors women in business, using her unique skill set and her own experience to help them grow their personal brand and their business.
Sandra is the Founder of Woman Who, a woman in business community that hosts annual awards and network events. Sandra is the author of the I Am a Woman Who series, a collection of inspirational stories from women in business role models who share their business journey to inspire others. More recently, Sandra launched the Woman Who Achieves Academy to help women in business power up their personal brand, and get visible. Alongside this, she runs weekend speaker retreats to help you stand out when you stand up and speak.
Sandra was awarded her MBE for her services to women in business in the West Midlands. She regularly speaks at events and conferences and takes part in panel discussions. Sandra also hosts her own events and podcasts, and hosts events for the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).
When she’s not working with women in business, Sandra works in football for the team she supports, Coventry City Football Club.
I help you to power up your personal brand and get visible.
My mission is to create more women in business role models to inpsire others.
Are you struggling to get ahead in business? You’re not alone.
Research by the Women’s Business Council revealed the UK economy continues to miss out on the untapped potential of women. What’s more, an RBS study showed that boosting female entrepreneurship could inject £60bn into the UK economy, a figure we simply cannot ignore.
So, although there is much work to be done the time IS right for you to get visible… and I will show you how!
Over the last five years, I have built ‘Woman Who’ into a national brand, supporting women in business to grow their personal brand, get visible and grow their business as a result. Using a proven system developed during my time as a successful business owner and solicitor, I guide you through the simple steps to help you gain that all important visibility. And who doesn’t want that!?
