Who do you work for and what do you do?
I am responsible for the sales and marketing at Ladypillo Ltd a company that produces a range of breast and body support pillows made from 100 per cent memory foam.
How is business?
Business is great! The beauty industry has embraced our innovations and the brand is growing from strength to strength. We have had orders from some great brands such as Clarins and Dove Spa and so it’s exciting to see the big players in the industry get on board. Even Amy Childs now uses it in her salon!
What are the challenges at the moment?
The Ladypillo is designed for women the world over and our mission is to go global this year and establish key distribution partners worldwide. We are working hard to spread the word and get as many salons and spas aware of the product as possible.
In business terms, what could make your life easier?
I don’t expect it to be easy – where’s the challenge in that!?
How would you describe the business community you operate in?
It’s diverse – from large multinational distributors to self employed mobile therapists! But we love working with different sectors and seeing the satisfaction they get by being able to offer our product to their clients. The feedback we get is brilliant.
Who’s your business hero?
My mum. She’s always run her own business, even whilst raising children and still manages to be the most interesting and glamorous woman I know!
What do you get up to outside of work?
I’m partial to the odd spa visit and enjoy travelling to new places – the world is too big to go somewhere twice!
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Turning my phone off at the weekend!
