Candy James - Owner and MD of Net Nannies
Ex-dancer, catwalk model, backing singer, photographers assistant, software developer, logistics manager and training director, Candy is also a part time TV presenter, having guested on the Granada Sky Broadcasting "Men & Motors" Channel, with more appearances on other programmes to come.
Candace set up Net Nannies in March 1997. The company provides IT support and emergency services, dealing with a wide variety of operating systems and software programs. The company received a £30,000 small business loan in 1996 and looks set for expansion and success.
Net Nannies' "nursery" style corporate image - check it out at www.netnannies.com - breaks the mould of the "grey suit" computer industry. A friendly, relaxed, no-jargon approach to solving IT problems is the rule at Net Nannies.

What do you like most about Manchester?
The vitality, the equal opps, the Council, the "live and let live" attitude - and it's safe: I can go out on my own at night and walk into any pub in town. I've never felt intimidated in Manchester.
