ABOUT

A business built on good morals, transparency, professionalism. This was the vision that was held for Agar Bowles, and the values that the business will continue to hold. 

The world of management systems, auditing and associated services is evolving, and we intend to evolve with it. There are brighter personalities, and less suits and briefcases. Whilst on the outside, processes are the center of what we do, people are just as important. We are people. Your business is people. We are individuals that come together to support you, your people and your business to achieve it's goals. 

We believe in honesty, and maintain transparency with our clients. We take a logical approach to our work, and keep things as simple as possible.

OUR TEAM

LA LI_edited_edited.jpg

Lauren Agar

Director

Lauren’s working experience started at the age of 17, and she spent the best part of 14 years working in the cleaning industry. That’s where she first became involved with ISO’s, internally managing the ISO 9001:2015 & 14001:2015 management systems and health & safety. From there she jumped to the other side, starting work for an ISO consultancy. Fast forward two years on, and another leap of faith lead to the launch of Agar Bowles Ltd with Zoe.

A country girl at heart and a mum to one – or three if you count the dogs, Lauren spends much of her week pulling her hair out (being careful to leave the grey in place, of course). But when not being summoned with ‘mummy, mummy, mummy’, she enjoys shooting, photography and anything that allows her to be generally creative, active and in the countryside. However, no activities are undertaken without a minimum three doses of caffeine in the morning!

Zoe Bowles

Director

Zoe began working at 16 and has a varied background, from working in hospitality to the NHS, private health clubs and adult education. After this, she worked for her local council where as part of the customer service management team, she completed her BSI qualification in ISO 9001:2015. After working in many organisation Zoe is able to turn her mind to any view on quality management, with one clear goal. Making sure you deliver great customer satisfaction every single time. 

Zoe can find home almost anywhere, but currently lives in the village of Cliffe (yes, that is where Boris wanted to put his airport!) with her husband and two children. Zoe has recently become a Director of Community Driving School CIC, an organisation which really captured her heart during Lockdown 2020. In her "spare time" Zoe is a great lover of all things crochet and whilst she can literally make anything she turns her hand to, is frequently reminded that "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should." Apparently crochet underpants are not all the rage!
