“The skills and confidence to pursue my own business”

Caroline Garvey

“My degree taught me everything I needed to know to be an entrepreneur and it gave me the skills and confidence to pursue my own business. Since graduating with first class honours, I’ve launched Proposal Boutique, a bespoke engagement proposal planning service. I cannot thank the University of Derby enough for all my business success.”
