This week’s Island Influencer is Janna Horsthuis, Managing Director of Robinson’s.
Robinson’s, established in 1886 as a small market stall has evolved over five generations into one of the Isle of Man’s best-known companies. Having taken over from her father, Janna is excited to be taking the family business into the future.
Janna has worked in the business since 2002 and has been involved in all areas over the years. She loves to stay involved in talking to customers, and they treat their team and customers as they wish to be treated themselves.
As the only female director, Janna talks candidly to Sharon about how getting to this position took lots of hard work and dedication. No two days are the same, especially true during COVID. So listen to how she manages her work-life balance whilst raising two boys and how you can learn from your mistakes and give everything a go.
Here’s this week’s conversation with Janna Horsthuis in episode 28 of Island Influencers.
