f: Entrepreneur #ialso2022

I am super excited to have been named as one of the UK’s most inspirational and dynamic female entrepreneurs by the f:Entrepreneur ‘#ialso100’ campaign!

I am being profiled alongside 100 female entrepreneurs from across the country, as part of the campaign to celebrate the multi-achievements of women running businesses in the UK today. Now in its fifth year, the growing campaign attracted a record number of applications for this year’s ‘#ialso100’ line-up. You can check out the full list here.

Social Media for Humans, Earth Day special. This roundtable discussion with host Alexis Bushnell, plus fellow purpose-driven business owners Kate Stansfield, Mandy Chowdhary, Katherine Byam and Virginia Cinquemani covered the highs and lows of ethical business ownership, what consumers can do to support the kinds of businesses that align with their values. Plus lots of cucumbers – but you’ll have to watch to find out why!
The Wild Folk Podcast. I loved speaking with Aimée about the importance of building community around your business, and why getting comfortable and clear about talking about what you do is essential for sales and growth.

Social Media for Humans. I spoke to Alexis from about the power of community for solo and small business owners, and how that need for having like-minded people around me inspired me to set up The Duck Pond. You can watch the video version of this interview here.

The Authentic Marketing Show. A lovely chat with Hannah, about writing copy we can be proud of, that doesn’t feel cringeworthy, and the difference between persuasive and coercive copy.
