An expert in diet, health, fashion and business, motivational speaker Michelle Mone OBE has made her own success, going from humble beginning to become one of the UK’s top female entrepreneurs.
Although she began her career as a model, Michelle soon used her business know-how to move from office junior at the Labatt Brewing Company to become head of sales and marketing for Scotland aged just 22. Unfortunately, she was made redundant two years later but that’s when her entrepreneurial nous kicked in and just six weeks later she came up with the idea of the Ultimo bra.
Her company Ultimo Brands International soon established itself worldwide as the supplier of incredibly popular designer lingerie. The product range then expanded into Ultimo Swimwear, Ultimo Bridal and Ultimo Black Label and in 2012 Michelle added the best-selling UTan range of tanning products to her portfolio.
Royalty is particularly impressed by Michelle Mone’s achievements and her entrepreneurial talents. Not only did Michelle get an OBE for her contribution to business but Prince Charles asked her to join The Prince’s Trust board of directors and the charity’s board of main council. Also, Princess Anne presented the budding entrepreneur with a best newcomer trophy at the British Apparel Export Awards.
A motivational speaker much in demand around the world – even with a broad Glaswegian accent! – Michelle has a story that never fails to impress audiences, especially given that she has shared platforms with the former leader of Russia Mikhail Gorbachev, ex-US president Bill Clinton and the UK Prime Minister David Cameron. Michelle has also worked with the Sultan of Oman in his programme of developing female entrepreneurship in the Middle East.
