Bee Kemball, managing director of Suffolk company Debach Enterprises was the invited speaker at MENTA’s Coffee Means Business networking event held on January 10, at the Bury St Edmunds Cricket Club.
Debach is a privately owned and independently run Suffolk company specialising in warehousing and distribution. Originally established 43 years ago it has been managed by Ms Kemball since 1992.
Under her leadership the company has invested in IT and green technology helping to grow Debach from its agricultural roots into one of the most forward looking businesses in the sector.
Mrs Kemball spoke about the diversity of running the family business, her work as a volunteer for the Suffolk Agricultural Association and her role as show director of the Suffolk Show.
Bee shared her aims of encouraging children to be more involved in the county show.
The annual event attracts approximately 90,000 people over two days and Bee took the opportunity to thank the hundreds of volunteers who help make the Suffolk Show possible.
This year it will take place on Wednesday and Thursday May 29 and 30 at Trinity Park, Ipswich.
