Woman in Progress: Molly Aldridge, M&C Saatchi PR

Our next Woman in Progress is Molly Aldridge, mum to two gorgeous young boys and global CEO of M&C Saatchi PR.  Before joining M&C Saatchi, she set up her own PR firm, SLAM, which she grew from a team of four to over a hundred (whilst having a newborn - we're exhuacasted just writing this).  She combines this with being huge fun and one of the reasons we miss London so much.  

We've also completely abused her inability to say no (see below) by asking her to answer our questions.  Thanks Molly!

Woman in Progress: Bonnie Chung from Miso Tasty

Our next Woman in Progress is the fabulous Bonnie Chung, founder of Miso Tasty, a fast-growing food business whose mission is to make tasty and nutritious Japanese food easy for anybody to make themselves.  Bonnie came up with the idea for Miso Tasty when she was 24, whilst working as a chef, and today their soups, miso pastes and noodle kits are stocked in Waitrose, Sainsburys, Ocado, Wholefoods and so many other places.  Miso Tasty is one of those food start-ups that others look to in admiration (and a bit of envy!).  Bonnie's also recently published her first cookbook.  Not that we're jealous or anything.

The third of our guest Woman in Progress posts, Aagot Vigdís Óskarsdóttir has combined an amazing legal career with motherhood, and continues to inspire with the work she does.  We particularly love her advice that "You don’t have to be perfect and that the world does not come to an end even though you allow yourself to take it easy and relax every now and then."
