About Marisa Guthrie
How I became a business leader
I have been running businesses for over 20 years, mainly in the retail and healthcare industries. The organisations I have worked with include Neal’s Yard Remedies and Planet Organic. I was also the Executive Director of a charity for several years.
In addition to this, I have also set up and developed several social enterprises and a cross party think tank called the Mindful Policy Group. In 2016 I helped to set up Lewes Women In Business, a not-for-profit peer to peer support network for local business women and am a fully signed up member of the Charter for Women In Business.
I am currently involved with policy makers from local government helping to shape the services available to small business owners and start-ups in the Lewes area and was recently voted one of the Top 100 Business Coach Bloggers.
I believe that business should be a force for good, and that the independent business and social enterprise sector is where a lot of exciting change is taking place. I want to be a part of that and continue to help businesses believe in themselves using my business skills to improve society and how we do business.
