Tell us a bit about yourself
I'm Kate Norman, born and brought up in sunny Essex and now a secondary school teacher in the north of Cambridgeshire with husband Phil, toddler daughter and 2 snooty cats
What did you do before joining Lingotot?
Taught (and still do teach) secondary French and Spanish
What attracted you to Lingotot?
The low initial investment and the fact that it married nicely with experience gained in jobs I've done before.
What territory do you cover?
West Norfolk and North Cambridgeshire-it's huge and very rural. I had an opening chat today with a school with 28 children!
What training and support have you received to establish your franchise?
All the sessions are pre-planned with resources provided, which is an amazing load off my mind. The head office mentoring calls are also great.
What do you enjoy most about running your own Lingotot business?
It's like a game, trying to find ways in to as many new markets as possible.
What advice would you give to someone considering buying a franchise?
You won't get anywhere unless you put the spadework in-but if you're ok with that, go for it!
Finally, what is your favourite Lingotot song or game?
Gotta be the Boogie-Woogie!
