Stylist Network’s success stories

First-hand accounts of how we've inspired

We’re only 18 months into Stylist Network, our flagship business events, but like proud parents, we’re already toasting the launch of dozens of new businesses that have been created as a result. Our six events so far have offered advice and encouragement to 1,250 people. We speak to three who have made their business dreams happen.

1. Christina Larkin

Founder of co-deal.co.uk, a website which helps start-ups save money on products and services.

“I attended ‘Become a food entrepreneur’ in June this year, where I met Cheryl Payne of HSBC. The support I have received from her has spurred me on. I launched the co-deal website in September. We have just made our first sales and have over 20 suppliers.”

2. Christina Richardson

Founder of The Nurture Network, which offers marketing strategies to new and established businesses.

“I remember vividly when I had the lightbulb moment about my business, as I walked away from Stylist’s ‘Confidence: the final frontier’ at Claridge’s in July 2010. Meeting other aspiring entrepreneurs made me realise what a market there was for my skills, and I started my business this September.”

3. Alisha Hermon

Founder of BlackDressHQ.com, a retail website dedicated to the LBD.

“After Stylist’s ‘Confidence’ event, I wrote a business plan as the speakers advised. Once I did, things that had appeared difficult seemed achievable. I launched my business on 6 October this year after quitting my job.”
