SHE might only be 22, but Megan Wane certainly has big ambitions.

Daughter of Wigan Warriors’ boss Shaun, Megan has added her a new business venture to her long list of successful enterprises.

The Standish 22-year-old is to set up a networking event for local companies in the hope of expanding her firm.

And Megan admitted she has her dad to thank for kick-starting her career.

She said: “My dad has helped me out with so much since day one and has been so supportive. I do have a lot to be thankful for because of him - he’s always believed in me.

“I enjoy the work so much. It just started as a hobby with organising events in Wigan but it’s grown lots so I happily began to work on it full time.

“I initially wanted to work in prisons so it’s a far cry from my initial career choice.

“It’s currently a working project but I have so many things coming up in the pipeline over the next year, I can’t wait to get my teeth stuck into it.”

The first of the Wigan Luncheon and Networking Events takes place today at The Village on the Green, Wood Road, Aspull.

Each month Megan will host the event with various sporting legends, successful business people and inspirational speakers to encourage companies to work together and grow.

Her main aim is to encourage businesses to eventually help each other offering, for example, discounts.

Not only this, but the former St Peter’s High student will also branch out to start the events within the Manchester, Leigh and Warrington areas each week.

It doesn’t stop there for this high flyer, Megan is also planning to launch her own fashion range by the end of the year.

She added: “There are a lot of exciting things coming up but eventually I would absolutely love to hold two massive fashion events each year for both summer and winter collections.

“I have so many ideas and I absolutely love planning, I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.

“Everything is just beginning to take off and I can’t believe I’ve already got this far but I’m enjoying every minute of it. Watch this space.”

Megan’s website will be up and running inthe next few days, visit www.bittersweetpromotions.com.
