I’m Lisa Highton and I own Business Buddies Kent based in Folkestone.  I love working with sole-traders and small business owners helping them to get in control of their businesses through the use of coaching and mentoring to hands-on practical help that makes a difference.

I have the role of Operations Manager within the TEDx Folkestone team, responsible for coordinating all the volunteers for on the day event support.  I liaise with the production team and marketing team to assist them with anything they need to make the event a success.

I am proud to be part of the TEDx Folkestone team.  Born and bred in Folkestone and a fan of TED it is great to pull on my own experiences to give something back, being part of something locally that can have such a big impact on the individuals who apply to speak but also the local community.  It is a great event to be part of.
