HOMS solicitors were delighted to welcome Sandy Lindsay MBE as guest speaker at our Afternoon Tea at The Westin Dublin on 9th March, in celebration of International Women’s Day 2018.
Sandy is Chair of Tangerine, now one of the UK’s leading integrated communications consultancies. She shared her journey and experience with us following the launch of Tangerine in 2002, which was the first PR company outside of London to be named Outstanding PR Consultancy of the Year in the CIPR’s National Excellence Awards. Sandy is passionate about creating quality career opportunities for young people from all backgrounds and has launched and grown a myriad of job creation programmes over the last decade.
It was fascinating to learn about her latest programme, the multi award-winning Juice Academy which provides social media / digital marketing apprenticeships for young persons from all backgrounds and which has created more than 250 roles in leading businesses across the North West of England. Sandy was honoured in the Queen’s birthday list of 2015 for services to business and young people. The same year also saw Sandy named North West Director of the Year (SME) and Highly Commended in the same award, nationally, by the Institute of Directors.
The beautiful surrounds of The Westin Dublin provided a truly welcoming and relaxed venue for the event.
