Meet the team

Project Coordinator: Alyson Tipping

Alyson’s experience spans across both the hospitality and arts sectors, where she’s co-ordinated a variety of different projects ranging from public art launches and festivals to weddings where there were no guests.  No matter how large or small the project she has learnt that attention to detail and service with a smile are key.  Since relocating to Suffolk in 2009 Alyson has gained a first class English degree and built up a reputation for providing strong local PR and marketing as well as the ability to pull off any event regardless of budget; she’s worked with FlipSide, Wonderful Beast, Aldeburgh Doc Fest and Affinity PR and is thrilled to be assisting Suffolk Coast Business to drive forward their vision.

Alyson lives in Ipswich where she is Governor of a local primary school. When she’s not working she’s busy with her young family.

Interim Chair: Jenny Stockman – Framlingham BA

Jenny Stockman H&SJenny was born and raised in Suffolk and is a dedicated fan of the county, its countryside and its business community.

Education was geared towards art and craft but Jenny always felt that she would prefer to learn her skills ‘on the job’, hence her interest in promoting apprenticeships and work based skills for young people.

Jenny played an instrumental role in getting a small Suffolk model making company up to a £1million turn-over which made it possible to create Framlingham Technology Centre. She is now co-ordinator of Suffolk Business Hub and Business Development manager/ambassador for The Technology Centre in Framlingham. She is volunteer business advisor for the high school’s Young Enterprise team and former Chair of Framlingham Business Association.

More recently Jenny has thrown herself into bringing thousands of visitors to her home town with the now famous Framlingham SausageFest, a popular element in the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival; she also set up the ground breaking Fresh Aspirations Forum, bringing the young people of Framlingham together with the world of business and enterprise.
