Who Wins When You Win?

I’ve always believed that every single one of us is capable of achieving our goals with the right support in place. And as a female entrepreneur who started with nothing, I’ve depended on hard work, self-development, continued education, and relationship-building to reach my own goals.

Like many entrepreneurs, as a young person, my personal journey was not easy or straightforward. I started full-time work at the age of 16, my first business at the age of 20, and a full-time degree in my thirties – whilst juggling two little daughters and a writing job! And I’m in no doubt that the people I met in my teenage years were pivotal to me overcoming the hurdles that life had put up as I set about finding my own way.


Every year, thousands of girls across the UK are still disadvantaged by their background, parental income and even their gender. Their potential is overlooked and they can’t access the support they need to succeed. So we’re delighted to be partnering with The Girls’ Network, which supports over 1,000 girls each year across the UK to reach their potential.

Now, every time you win an award we will celebrate your success by making a donation to The Girls’ Network on your behalf.

With your help, this initiative will inspire and empower girls from the least advantaged communities by giving the vital funds and support they need to connect to a mentor and a network of professional female role models.

Over the course of 2021, our collective efforts mean that three girls can be mentored for a whole year, making a real difference to these young women.



I am passionate about empowering young girls to access the education and skills they need to create a better future for themselves and their families, and I’m delighted that this project also helps us to support many of the UN’s Global Goals including Quality Education for all, Gender Equality, Reduced Inequalities, as well as creating opportunities for Decent Work and Economic Growth.
