Women Mean Business events are back, with Code Galaxy!

Starting off with our Leading Ladies Lunch, we will be joined by our guest speakers: Dawn Gibbins (Flowcrete), Elena Jackson and Lauren Zawadzki (Deco Publique)

Dawn Gibbins MBE is a British entrepreneur who started commercial and industrial flooring company Flowcrete in 1982 in south Cheshire, England, with her late father, Peter Gibbins. She oversaw its international and domestic growth, covering 30 offices worldwide and 12 manufacturing sites in the UK, Asia, Sweden, Belgium, South Africa, US and Brazil. Flowcrete was sold to New York Stock Exchange listed company RPM in April 2008.

Since the sale, Gibbins has launched a flooring business aimed at homes, Barefoot Living, based in Congleton, South Cheshire, England, along with a social enterprise Barefoot Feng Shui. Gibbins is a keen feng shui practitioner, and sees that the clear, uncluttered philosophy supports a holistic approach to UK lifestyles, both in the home and in business. Dawn has also featured on the popular Secret Millionaire show, donating £250,000 to three Bristol-based charities!

Elena Jackson Lauren Zawadzki 

Since 2014, Elena and Lauren have built Deco Publique into an established art, culture and commissioning company – working across the North of England with artists, communities, organisations and industry to create exceptional and award winning experiences, rooted in people & place.
