Jan Cavelle
Jan Cavelle founded and built up several businesses in food, music and manufacturing. She has always supported women's enterprise and is now doing more coaching and speaking again, in addition to her writing. Cavelle has become fascinated by how we are now seeing both psychology, metaphysics and the culture of the Eastern world merging with traditional business thinking.
