Name: Karen Winkley
Company: Get Started
Position: Programme Manager Fylde Coast
I am a Social Sciences Graduate.
My career began in banking, then I moved into the Mayor’s office, have worked at Blackpool Airport and have been in PR, business development and marketing for 15 years.
What’s keeping me busy at the moment?
How long have you got? Main event at the moment is the unique Blackpool Rocks event, but I am also working on getting us into Fylde and Wyre.
Everything, except Country and Western, from Michael Bublé to the Kings of Leon.
Best Holiday Destination:
Lake Garda, Italy
Ideal way to wind down after work:
When do I get to do that then?!
I seek out anything that involves laughter and music. Comedy shows, theatre, cinema, Edinburgh Fringe, dancing (including belly dancing) and spending time with my family and mates.
Best piece of business advice:
If it doesn’t make you wanna get up in the morning, don’t do it.
