My book launch was so much fun! It was a great way to celebrate with clients, business associates, and friends. Book sales profits of £618.29 were donated to Smartworks Charity. Ella Dodd, the West London Manager, came along to say a few words about the brilliant work that Smartworks does to help women back into work. Here are some photos of the evening.
Long gone are the days when, if you were at all price conscious, you would have to head to the busy high street optician to buy your glasses. The last few years has seen an explosion of independent eyewear brands offering modern, chic styles, that do not cost the earth.

WOW! About last night… Not only was it an epic, nail-biting night for English football, but it was also the party to celebrate the launch of my new book Look Like The Leader You Are; A 7 Step Strategy For Ambitious Women. I am so thrilled that both were such a success!
Identifying what to do with the items within your wardrobe is only half the battle – setting an action plan to make sure you have completed the job is a whole other story.
