Entrepreneur and organic pioneer I founded Planet Organic, the UK’s first organic supermarket, in 1995. My mission is to promote health in the community. As well as being a full-on mother to 3 young children, I continue to work part-time at Planet, host lectures to budding entrepreneurs, mentors startups, teach healthy baking and write cookbooks.
What skills can you bring as a mentor?
My skills as a mentor are to support, challenge, advise, clarify and accelerate your idea and process.
What makes the difference between good business and a brilliant business?
For me, brilliant business is commercially driven, values led and socially innovative.
If you had your time again in business, what would you do differently?
If I could have done it differently, I wouldn’t have had investors.
