This week’s Woman in Progress is a shot of pure sugar-filled joy, Vicky Graham of Vicky’s Donuts. I met Vicky in my sweet-making days, when she was my neighbour at a BBC Good Food Show where she sold out every day in just a couple of hours - it was clear then that her delicious donuts were going to prove massively popular - and they really have. Vicky’s Donuts were rated ‘best taste’ donuts by Time Out, have appeared on a episode of The Apprentice, and she’s even made dino and whale donuts for The Natural History Museum. We’re thrilled she’s agreed to answer our questions this week.Read More
Our next woman in progress is Gabi from Chroma Stationery. We are always excited to champion young female businesswomen and so, given our ongoing stationery obsession, this week we're extra excited. Gabi produces and collates vibrant, bright and happiness inducing products for her customers in the ever popular stationery market. She's collaborated with another of our women in progress and is active in the Bristol community of inspiring women and entrepreneurs. We are glad to have Gabi and to share her story and advice with you.Read More
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!Read More
Our latest Woman in Progress is Laura Lea from Laura Lea Design. Laura founded her Leytonstone boutique three years ago, and in that time her business has gone from strength to strength. Laura's shop stocks fantastic artists and designers whose work can't be found on the high street (it's a must-go place for great gifts) and Laura also organises pop-up exhibitions around London to expose the artists and designers she represents to new audiences. We're delighted she's taken the time to answer our questions.Read More
