Half of UK brides are late to church, so I can now reveal the shoes commissioned by UKTV. Used as promotional and marketing shoes for the brides' press calls. Creating a series of sizes in a nail biting 3 days for their new show on Watch Tv - Get Me To The Church. Veiled, and great for the bride on the run. With more to come on this!

I am thrilled to announce that I have been invited by a girls' school buzzing with creative and academic vitality to inspire at their International Womens Day event. I will be alongside the CEO of Women For Women, Brita Fernandez-Schmidt and Paralympian, Wendy Smith.
The school had spotted me previosuly in the press and wnated to get me to share my unusual and inspiring story saying the audience of students, media, parents and governors were sure to take something away from it. I will also be singing a song from Handel's Opera, Semele and If I Loved You from Carousel.
I will be looking to do more for the community in terms of sharing my story for inspiration and strength.
Below you can find the upcoming event in the press and a larger version in the right column.

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.
