Worcestershire’s Talking Head – Tracey Marlow-Jones
Candidate: Tracey Marlow-Jones
Director – Indegu
Every Friday we put a local business leader on the other side of the interview table! Want to get involved, or put someone in the hot-seat?? You can nominate a local contact in the link at the bottom of the page.
1) How did you get into this industry?
I went from teaching to creating elearning content and then finally running a busy elearning department in a Worcester college where over 800 learning resources were created for education and industry. After six years working in education, I decided, with my business partner, to take the plunge and setup Indegu Ltd which we launched in May this year.
2) What do you enjoy most about being in the business?
It’s great to be able to oversee a project from start to finish. I enjoy being able to use my teaching experience to create learning content, and because the content is varied based on the clients we work for, I’m learning new things all the time from cyber security to animal welfare, you never know what’s next.
3) What top 3 words/ phrases describe you best?
Organised, honest, reliable.
4) What would you say would be your biggest achievement to date?
Helping to save someone’s life at the scene of an accident many years ago. More recently, taking the plunge by giving up a job and starting a new business.
5) What is your weakness?
Not stopping, trying to please everyone.
6) What motivates you?
My family keeps me busy having two boys who both spend a lot of time on a football pitch and a husband who coaches. I have a beagle, Bramble – a walk in the fresh air is always good to clear away the cobwebs (it’s always nicer when the sun is shining though).
Professionally, clients choosing to work with me because of my industry knowledge and expertise is great, allowing me to create resources that clients can be proud of.
7) What de-motivates?
8) Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Enjoying whatever I do is really important, as well as having a good work life balance.
9) What is the best USP about your current business?
Being able to produce customised elearning designed around the needs of our client, using our teaching background we can ensure learning is relevant, achievable and enjoyable. We create resources that are affordable, engaging and media rich for any size of project.
10) What is your favourite local restaurant and shop?
The Kings Head in Sidbury is one of my favourite restaurants. As for shops, too many to choose!
