Since 1984 MENTA has helped over 30,000 entrepreneurs launch and run thriving and profitable businesses throughout Suffolk. Our mission is to help Suffolk based people start and grow their businesses, encourage expansion, growth and employment to ensure the continued thriving prosperity of Suffolk and the Eastern Region.
The staff at MENTA, many of whom have run their own successful businesses are driven by the desire to help our clients realise their full potential and succeed in their chosen line of business.
As a commercial solicitor I advise a wide range of local businesses and I am passionate about understanding and encouraging business development. I enjoy supporting the MENTA Team with the many and varied enterprise initiatives they provide to start-up and growing businesses.
I’m a Chartered Building Surveyor and when I set up Dayle Bayliss and Associates LLP I found MENTA’s business services invaluable. To be involved in MENTA is a fantastic opportunity, the support and inspiration they offer is amazing, and to play a part in that direction is a privilege.
I am responsible for the team leading on economic development and growth at Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council. I have a strong interest in helping businesses prosper and enjoy supporting MENTA by using my knowledge, experience and connections.
As director of local company, Pathfinder East I have over 25 years’ experience in the private and not-for-profit sectors with a focus on marketing. There is tremendous drive and opportunities for start-ups and business growth and I’m delighted to be part of the team to help shape the work of MENTA.
