Lucy Ashton - Enterprise Coach

Lucy has a background of over 20 years in business, working in sales and marketing for some of the largest Blue Chip FMCG companies in the world such as Coca-Cola and Diageo. Seven years ago I left the corporate world and set up my own small business in Sheffield, The Dandelion Clock florist. My role at Groundwork is to provide business support for new start-up enterprises within the city, giving bespoke coaching and development.

What is the highlight of your role? The highlight of my role is the diversity of clients I get to work with, and seeing their motivation and drive grow as their new project gathers momentum.

Why is Groundwork South Yorkshire a great place to work? Groundwork is such a great place to work because of the supportive team I am part of, and because I am lucky enough to be helping breath life into new business ideas.
