Sandra Lawes (Editorial & Business Processes) 
Sandra has been passionate about folk music since her student days and believes strongly in the importance of live music. Living in the Unicorn area for more than 30 years and an active member of Hitchin Folk Club for longer than she cares to remember, she regularly attends folk festivals all over England and abroad. 

She has an MBA and many years’ experience in marketing and publishing. Throughout her successful business career, she has held senior posts in major companies and has also run her own market research and public speaking coaching company since 2000. You can see her business website at 

Because of her business experience and love of all things folk, she is ideally placed to take Unicorn Magazine forward and support and promote the vibrant local folk scene.
