Heidi Chamberlain-Jones

Short Course Tutor - Business Workshops

Over her 30 year working life Heidi has had various careers in retail, hospitality and media, working for both national and independent companies including Marks & Spencer, Newsquest and Advent Media.

Yet her interest has always remained with Herefordshire and the people and businesses within it, and this lead her to launch her own series of regional glossy lifestyle magazines, in which she featured many of the area’s creative geniuses and emerging artists, while giving us a look ’through the keyhole’ at some of the finest properties, eateries, activities, heritage and people of our amazing county.

In 2004 Heidi developed Minx Media Ltd, a Marketing, Business Development and Leadership training consultancy. As well as consulting to regional businesses privately, she also delivers a plethora of courses at various learning and training organisations across the Midlands for businesses wanting to develop their own or their team’s knowledge and skills in Business and Personal Development.
Her own continued professional development has seen her become a member of the Institute of Leadership and Management with distinctions and she is an approved provider through Government funding programmes such as Growth Accelerator and the Growth Voucher Scheme.

Since 2012 she has brought her business skills to the college to offer practical workshops in Marketing tailored for the retail, tourism and small business sectors to enable them to sell their products and services using modern and traditional methods that are right for their specific business.

Such is her passion to support regional businesses, Heidi’s ‘hobbies’ are still commercially focused and she can be seen on various trading Boards and steering groups including the current Hereford Business Improvement District, which plans to regenerate the City’s trading environment and visitor experience in Hereford’s City Centre.

She also adores her dog, Riley, and long country walks exploring ..where else .. Herefordshire of course.
