Grow your fol­low­ing

Start a brand on the side

In this day and age, it’s all about the side-hus­tle. But how do you start a busi­ness while you’re try­ing to hold down a full-time job? Emily Ben­dell, who founded her lin­gerie brand, Blue­bella, at just 24 years old, and Hol­lie Grant, Pi­lates in­struc­tor and founder of ex­er­cise and well­be­ing pro­gramme ‘The Model Method,’ will guide you through work­ing the 5 to 9. What a way to make two liv­ings.

Money too tight to men­tion? Find out from this shrewd trio how to build a busi­ness any­way. Lana Elie, CEO and founder of Floom, Pippa Mur­ray, founder of Pip & Nut, and Dan Hughes, ‘The Ne­go­ti­at­ing Guru’ (he’s even trained some of the gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials deal­ing with Brexit), will teach you how to take your idea from fledg­ling to funded.

Master your pitch

A good self-pitch is the key to im­press­ing po­ten­tial em­ploy­ers and in­vestors, but big­ging your­self up is su­per-hard, es­pe­cially when you’re ner­vous. En­ter Imo­gen But­ler-Cole, an ex­pert tu­tor from RADA In Busi­ness, who knows how to leave a last­ing im­pres­sion.
