Business Stories: Ella Mills, Olivia Wollenberg & Pip Murray; hosted by lauren armes
Ever wondered about how to bring a successful product to market, how to build a happy team or how not to burn out running your own business? Lauren speaks to Ella, Olivia & Pip about their highly acclaimed brands: Deliciously Ella & The Mae Deli, Livia’s Kitchen and Pip and Nut, respectively. These health-tastic business-women, who need absolutely no introduction, will also talk about their journeys to success, what drives them forward every day and their dreams for the future.
Over the past few years, we have watched Ella’s career grow at an astounding pace and her much-loved brand “Deliciously Ella” continues to surprise and excite her millions of followers. There’s no stopping her! Not only was her first book the fastest-selling debut cookbook of all time, her hugely popular Mae Deli is just opening its impressive second site and her new range of energy balls is bouncing into all our favourite shops.
Olivia Wollenberg is the brains behind Livia’s Kitchen, a beautiful brand devoted to sweet treats with a nutritional twist. We love her vibe. Although all her produce and recipes are gluten, wheat, dairy and refined sugar free, Livia’s Kitchen firmly believes it is more important to think about what a product is made with, rather than what it is free from. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
Pippa Murray founded Pip & Nut off the back of one great love and one profound hate: peanut butter and energy gels. As a marathon runner, Pip did not like gels and energy bars routinely swallowed by runners both in training and on race day. Discovering that her all time favourite peanut butter did in fact have amazing nutritional value, she founded a brand that celebrates all things nutty while offering a nutritional energy kick. Turns out, EVERYONE loves peanut butter and her huge success is as much down to her beautifully natural and utterly delicious product as it is to her wonderful charm and personality. We’re so excited to welcome her to the main stage.
