Bolton born and bred, having attended Smithills School and worked in Bolton all her life, Gaynor has become integral to the Bolton Business Community, working alongside literally hundreds of small businesses on a daily basis. Through her marketing and advertising company thebestof bolton, she champions local businesses, supports Buy Local and really has a passion for helping businesses be the best they can be.
It’s through that passion, Gaynor, along with her husband David, recently launched ‘My Business Growth Academy’, the online business school for busy business owners, to enable small business owners to access online business support, training, coaching and more in a way that is affordable and accessible.
Gaynor also has a real passion for supporting Women in Business, having previously run her own successful Women’s Networking Group and recognises the value that women bring in their own unique way to the world of business.
Having been a successful business owner herself now for over a decade, she fully understands the pressures and stresses of running a small business and prides herself in delivering practical and effective support and advice, as someone who ‘walks the walk’ in her own business life.
She says, “As wives, mothers, homemakers and carers, as well as contributing in numerous ways in the workplace and business world, women bring a balanced and realistic dimension to life and so often I’m inspired by the stories of triumph over adversity and success despite juggling roles, I just marvel at the things women achieve’.
