BUSINESS STORIES: Jasmine Hemsley, Kara Rosen (Plenish), Jane Gottshalk (Jax Coco) & Jennifer Irvine (Pure Package); hosted by Susannah Taylor 14.00 - 14.45



We are so proud to have gathered together these four inspiring women to come and talk about their entreprenerial experiences in the world of wellbeing.  And as if that's not enough, they will be hosted by Susannah Taylor, founder of the mighty health & beauty magazine Get The Gloss.

A wellness and nutrition expert, Jasmine Hemsley has inspired a global audience to shift  their perspectives on food and lifestyle as a founder of Hemsley + Hemsley.  Jasmine champions the concept of eating well to look and feel your very best. With a passion for home-cooked food and natural remedies, she has captured the attention of a vast global audience, and uses her platform as an author and influencer to encourage a return to a simpler, more mindful everyday life.

Working in collaboration with her partner, renowned photographer Nick Hopper, Jasmine's latest venture is East by West, a Pop-Up café, sitting within the Maiyet Concept Store in the vibrant heart of London’s Mayfair.  Building on the success of the Hemsley + Hemsley café at Selfridges, East by West is a personal passion project presenting Jasmine's accessible and grounded food philosophy. 

Founder and innovator Kara Rosen launched award-winning British brand Plenish in 2012, providing great-tasting, power-packed drinks to fuel full-on lifestyles.

A regular juicer back in New York, Kara struggled to find an organic, nutrient-rich juice cleanse that was not loaded with sugar-laden fruits and vegetables in the UK. Frustrated with the lack of integrity in most products on the supermarket shelves, she invested time in understanding sourcing and production: dreaming up a new kind of product, which would contain only organic, fresh ingredients, a real step change from the traditional ‘big food’ companies. 

Growing the Plenish brand from a small, niche e-commerce business to one of the leading healthy drinks brands in the UK has been an absolute labour of love, harnessing Kara’s passion and raw ambition.

Jane Gottschalk is a woman of many talents. Not only is she Co-Founder and Executive Director of Jax Coco, Creative Director of Perfect Moment Ski & Surf Wear, and Executive Director of OhSo Probiotic Chocolate, she is also an Animals Asia Ambassador. In addition to being a successful, inspiring entrepreneur, Jane is mother to five active young children. 

Jax Coco was born after noticing a lack of healthy, no added sugar drinks.  Passionate about healthy living, Jane spent time sourcing the best coconuts from the Philippines creating Jax Coco’s signature taste and capturing it in Jax Coco’s iconic, stylish glass bottle.  In 2011, Jax Coco officially launched in Hong Kong & London.  Since then, Jax Coco has transformed into a global brand that provides an innovative range of premium coconut products, packaged within a minimalistic design aesthetic, to fit with positive modern lifestyles. 

Jennifer Irvine is a true food revolutionary, using her love of food and passion for the freshest quality ingredients to change the lives of thousands of people, including many notable stars. Through her companies, The Pure Package, and recently launched Balance Box, plus the release of her recipe book – The Diet for Food Lovers – Jennifer’s delicious, nutritious and perfectly balanced meals have helped thousands of clients to get in shape for the beach, a new movie or post-baby, and the response has always been the same: this feels like anything but a diet!
