Michelle Mone, Baroness Mone of Mayfair OBE, is an entrepreneur, renowned speaker and business mentor.
Lady Mone grew up in the East End of Glasgow where – due to family illness – she was forced to leave school at 15 with no qualifications. In 1996 she founded Ultimo, which went on to become the UK’s leading designer lingerie brand with a multi-million pound turnover.
Lady Mone’s passion is to use her success to inspire others, speaking around the globe at business events and mentoring hundreds of young entrepreneurs from across the world.
In 2010 she was made OBE by Her Majesty the Queen, in recognition of her services to business. In the run-up to the 2014 referendum on Scotland’s future, she helped to lead the campaign for former Prime Minister David Cameron to keep the United Kingdom together.
In October 2015, Michelle entered the House of Lords, becoming Baroness of Mayfair. She has since undertaken the “Mone Review” at the personal request of former Prime Minister and former Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Iain Duncan Smith; a ten-month voluntary project touring some of the most deprived areas of the UK to discover the barriers to entrepreneurship that exist there.
You can here Michelle speak at the Introbiz Expo in November.
Michelle’s Speaker time slot is 12:10pm – 1pm
