People we have helped:



Lucienne Elms - Horse Scout

Lucienne has worked in the equestrian sector all of her life, and for the past 15 years has ridden as a professional competition rider.

She was very interested in uptake of Facebook, and now more so LinkedIn, Lucienne recognised that there were gaps in the market that these social and business platforms lacked specificity for, and wanted to form a recognised brand, strong and classy enough even that equestrian professionals sought after it, and desired to be associated with it. My vision was never rigid with respect to functionality, my drive comes from knowing the space and market opportunity.

Pippa Yeates- Bubble and Squeak

Pippa visited many amazing places, notably Italy, home of delicious Prosecco, wine and endless culinary delights. she has always enjoyed quality cuisine and trying new things and many years later a light bulb moment came whilst sipping on Prosecco, that would incorporate all of her many talents and passions in life - a portable Prosecco bar!

And so Bubble & Squeak was born. The ‘bubbles’ are obviously self-explanatory and ‘squeak’ - you will have to check out her website for that one!
