“Speaking with Tanya at a recent workshop proved to be a valuable experience for both my professional and personal life. Coming from a creative music background, focus on business and entrepreneurship can easily be forgotten but Lynchpin was able to highlight the importance of these aspects, especially branding and marketing a creative product. Highly recommend” Andy Brown. Bass player with Afro Cluster / Zervas & Pepper


“Tanya what can I say, when you need inspiration she guides you, when you need enthusiasm she can show you.When you lose focus she redirects you. During the set up of my business Tanya has been an amazing help, advice when I needed it..her networking skills are over and above..for one example she Lynchpin’d me a local business contact who has a similar background to myself in the Automotive industry and after s couple of meets I ended up selling his Custom Build VW for him, he has given me plenty of business advice and guidance as has Tanya herself. Without Tanya this would never have happened.  A credit to Penarth and all the local businesses as she is certainly the Lynchpin between us all. Keep up the great work Tanya.” Dan Williams, Prestige Cars Cardiff.


“I can highly recommend using for workshops. As a sme local family business, having an outside view can be essential. Sometimes brainstorming with someone from outside your business, who can see a different point of view, or thinks outside the box without bias, can help you move in another great direction. Whether it is re-inventing ways to market your existing products or forward planning strategies, Tanya’s help and idea’s have helped give fantastic results for Fairydoorz.

I am also part of the BWPenarth group, which is a fabulous group of ladies, with likeminded business ideas and aspirations. It is a friendly and informal group which is part of an ever growing wider circle of business women from other local areas/hubs. We can interlink and have access to all current members details on a main website which further promotes our own businesses and lets us even start our own networking with people within the group who can be of assistance or importance to your area of business/expertise.

Overall Tanya is a very enthusiastic, driven lady who has a wonderful network of friends and people around her. She has built up these network groups from scratch – full of people who can assist you; from accountants, administrators, photographers and media whizzes etc. Tanya also has further connections with other business people and contacts in the local area too as well as being editor for Penarth View, which is a fantastic quality publication. It is lovely to be part of a local group where you can always make more connections and continue to grow. There are always fun times and yet informative speakers and content at the meetings. A real community feel and a great business tool too!” Phillipa – Fairy Doors
