Victoria is one of Stockton’s major success stories, with a thriving business in hair extensions.

She was also winner of the SME category at the 2019 Tees Businesswomen Awards as well as being a finalist in the Business of the Year category.

Victoria shared the secrets of her success and the reasons why her company is firmly rooted in Stockton during the event, while Julie explained the benefits of advertising with Teesside’s lifestyle magazine.

“I thoroughly enjoyed attending the event and meeting all the lovely people who obviously care so much about Stockton and the town centre,” said Julie, who joined Tees Life publishers Resolution Media & Publishing four months ago.

Julie is already making her mark with Tees Life as she juggles her events manager role with Middlesbrough-based Resolution.

The publishers are confident she will help to build on the magazine’s image by building professional relationships with clients going forward into 2020.

The next issue of Tees Life is due out in February 2020. Any businesses interested in advertising can email info@tees-life.co.uk or call 01642 450255.
