rebecca profile“I love being able to help businesses overcome challenges and watching them grow in confidence. Organisation and structure make me happy!”

My best Business Clinic moment

“Going to a meeting with a client to help them deliver a presentation to a room filled with people. When she came to The Business Clinic initially she was nervous and dreading having to do it. But on the day I got to see her confidently deliver the presentation we helped her build and practice. I was able to be there with her to provide support, both emotional and technical.”

Areas of expertise

Events management: including planning, project management, database creation and processing, presentation design and creation, advising on delivery and hosting.

About me

“I enjoy walking with my partner and our Chihuahuas at the beach and days out at the zoo.”

Laura Evans
Sales and Communications Coordinator

LauraFor the last three years Laura has been responsible for sales within a web design and digital marketing agency based in Preston so she has many strong relationships within the local business community.

My best Business Clinic moment

My best moment at The Business Clinic was when I attend one of our ‘Peerworking’ Business Support Surgeries and fetch a discussion point forward.

Working at The Business Clinic I was unsure whether or not it was appropriate for me to do this after only being with the company for a few months.

How wrong was I. The feedback and advice I received from the people/Business owners around the table was overwhelming.

Areas of expertise

Laura is the team sales and communications coordinator which is particularly apt as she has a BTEC diploma in customer service and the two words people use to describe Laura are “loving” and “caring”. We already know that she has an excellent telephone manner and great communication skills so our clients are in good hands.

About me
Laura is all about her family, she will tell you that she has “four beautiful boys”. These include her son Aaron, aged 9, 2 beagles, Smudgey who is 5 & Flye , aged 4. The youngest “boy” is a sausage dog called Dash who is just 1 year old.

No surprise then that her hobbies consist mainly of walking her dogs and reading books by James Patterson. She also loves caravanning.
