Jane Tesseyman (23rd January 2021)
This interview with Jane Tesseyman is full of interesting stories some of which are good memories and some which are definitely not.
Just to give you a flavour, Jane and Tess honeymooned in Egypt and were among the first British tourists back into the country after a terrorist attack so they spent their Nile cruise honeymoon surrounded by armed guards.
Listen to the ups and downs of living on the Greek island of Rhodes. A frank part of our chat was about bullying in adult life and the effect this has on mental health.
Jane had a varied career leading her to being a director of printing company Est Display Ltd. She also has tales about Formula One in Melbourne, bee keeping (British Black Bees) and of course running – something Jane is heavily involved in.
The interview never stops to inform and entertain.
