Nicky ready to pass on her business tips

AN AWARD winning entrepreneur from the borough is preparing to pass on her tips to others in the industry.

Nicky Gray will be one of the guest speakers at the Ready for Business event at Woodhorn Museum, Ashington, on Friday, March 22, from noon to 2pm.

The event will involve entrepreneurs, TEDCO business advisors and individuals looking for support and guidance to turn their ideas into a viable business.

Nicky launched soft play area Kiki’s Kabin, in North Shields, when she was 20, before opening children’s hair salon Fidgets in Whitley Bay four years later.

She said: “I’m always looking for opportunities to share my experience and help people turn their business ideas into reality.

“I’m looking forward to meeting with attendees to help motivate people to consider enterprise as an option and tell my own story of the highs and lows of running a business, as well as the tools you need.”
