It was an honour to be invited as an ambassador for Norwich High School For Girls earlier this week. The small team of mentors teamed together for the Inspiring Females initiative founded by the school's head teacher and Siobhan Ecke. For the first time, it also comprised of men who made up the so called inspring people within the area.


However, it wasn't about us on this day. We spent the afternnon in mentor pairs and spent the day with up to ten, 14 year olds each. Guiding them through how they would start their own social enterprises. Looking into the seed stages, finaces, marketing, operations and so on. My team came up with a technology app and I was impressed to see how tech savvy they all were.


It was truly an inspiring day for all!

Last week saw the last of the STEM career days at Kings Langley School. To have been invited as an ambassador as a technology and innovation practitioner was really flattering.


It's vital that the emerging generations are somewhat aware of what else is out there and how they can best utilise their skills. Personally I was a youngster who had several interests and perhaps thought I could only actually delve into one career. The great news is that more so than ever, professions are diversifying and skills can certainly be utilised in several areas. Keeping your options open and mind bright!


Sharing my personal story as to how I eventually ended up starting Milly J Shoes, I was thrilled that both the students and faculty found my workshops and story inspiring.


If you'd like me to come into your organisation or school and would appreciate my unusual story for motivational and creative purposes, please do get in contact! It's not a talk solely for the education section but also humanitarian, business and self exploration.


STEM - Scienece, Technology, Engineering, Maths.

It was a fabulous event on Sunday meeting with other Theo Paphitis business award winners in Birmingham. Great to hear the insight of Mike Pickles of the Really Useful Products and Holly Tucker, the co founder of, Not On The High Street.


A yearly seminar held for all of Theo Paphitis' award winners in the ICC. Supplied with plenty of opportunities to discuss ideas with his partners from Rymans, Robert Dyas, Ilaw and many more.


The sandwiches and spread was lovely.


Thank you.
