Julie Macken, Deputy Queen Bee and owner of Neves Bees has a career that spans an impressive 20 years in pharmaceutical marketing, and was disillusioned with the poor quality seen in many beauty products - hence Neves Bees was created to change that. She is also studying Herbal Medicine and has exciting plans to expand the already impressive collection range of balms, hand salves and soaps.

Sarah Jordan, CEO and Founder of Y.O.U Underwear never thought she’d end up running her own underwear business empire! Y.O.U stands for ‘You Own Underwear’ as she believes everybody should have exactly that. A business with a purpose beyond profit started out with a trip to East Africa in 2016 and some community volunteer work which uncovered such a need for basic underwear for hundreds of women and children. Today, they sell organic garments which are on a buy-one-give two model. Simple, yet inspiring and making huge change!

Hannah Jordan, Sales Director and Sustainability Co-Ordinator at Mama B manages a network that inspires, encourages, motivates and manages the wider sustainability key performance indicators throughout head offices and across stores nationwide. Mama B’s design process is solely focused on sustainable credentials of fabric composition and internal practices, purchases and processes.
