You may have seen our promotion The Semple Club on social media over the weekend. Aimed at future leaders, the Semple Club enables women to buy in to the experience of having a bespoke dress for their next important event.

There are many things that unite Semple clients. We care about the next generation of leaders. We mentor. We have views about sustainability and while we lead busy lives, we know the importance of personal presentation. Another area that unites us is how we accessorise our Semple garments. Whether it be a consultation or fitting...Read More
I spoke at a conference in Prague a few weeks ago on the topic of Women and their relationship to money and began with one of my favourite mantra’s: money talks and wealth whispers. The phrase generated quite a bit of discussion and it inspired me to launch the Semple Consultants opportunity – an initiative that has...Read More
I am fascinated with how four lines, that once denoted a number now symbolise a campaign, a protest, a call to action.

I was giving a talk to female entrepreneurs...Read More

On the whole, cover up has a negative connotation but it...Read More
I used to describe August as a month that does not exist. Supposedly a quiet month with many people on holiday, a city with less traffic, less noise – providing time to slow down a little. Time to catch up with friends, to sort out paperwork, to act more on the spur of the moment....Read More
Throughout July I have posted a series of business thoughts that comment on the world today. Obliquely political I have posited a view linking business and women’s empowerment and observed the responses on social media. There have been four themes with one underlying message, that of friendship. Despite her FLOTUS tenure regretfully coming to an...Read More
