Dr Liz Jackson MBE
Liz Jackson is an inspirational figure with an extraordinary story, as many would have discovered when she was featured in Channel 4’s ‘Secret Millionaire’. Honoured by Her Majesty the Queen, Liz was awarded an MBE in the 2007 for services to business, and in 2012 she was bestowed with an honorary doctorate by Staffordshire University for her business achievements and for inspiring others. Liz is also an accomplished author, having published her book StartUp! which provides invaluable help and advice to entrepreneurs everywhere.
After running her own award-winning company, Great Guns Marketing, for 17 years – a business which she launched the year she lost her eyesight – Liz understands the pressures and challenges business owners face. Business owners create jobs, positively impact the economy and often support local communities. Many business owners trade through recessions and have overcome obstacles to built their businesses. Liz strives to make sure each and every business owner understands the value of the business they own and achieves the best value when they come to sell.
