who we are
PtG Business was created when we recognised we needed someone to support our business. We couldn’t find anyone who would be able to provide individual, tailored services to meet our needs. We were expected to fit into their business rather than them creating a service to fit in with us.
We’re based in rural Bedfordshire, amongst the sheep and cows (literally), but don’t let that fool you. We are committed to engaging with our local community, at all levels, and are putting our money where our mouth is, with initiatives ranging from practical support for those caught in the homeless trap, to supporting young people who are struggling to get into work and learn some basic life skills. And if that’s not enough we are committed to proving it is possible to provide engaging employment for professional people, which is truly flexible.

For the last 12 or so years, I’ve worked as the resident Nerd wrangling data for charities and before that I worked in admin, across a variety of sectors. PtG is my business – my baby. I set it up because as a single parent my daughter was due to start school, and I couldn’t commute into London any more. I know what it feels like to be awake at 4am worrying about one thing or another, but I also know how satisfying it is when we’ve done a good job, or something has gone really well. I want to help reduce the sleepless nights and increase the warm fuzzies from a job well done.
As if setting up a business wasn’t hard enough, I’ve now got a blended family as well, which includes teenagers. Ferrying kids around and making sure they have what they need on the right days is a job on its own, which often conflicts with the business, but I’ve become adept at juggling them to keep everyone happy.
In other news, you’ll never be sure what colour my hair is, I cannot live without tea and I’m a Nerd to the core (think Star Wars and Lego).
