The Speakers

Vicky Simmons mean Mail

Vicky Simmons is the founder of Mean Mail and a freelance art director who has worked in London, Los Angeles and New York for brands such as Sky, Diageo and Apple. Her work has awards and praise from the AIGA Design Archive, the Clios, Royal College of Art, Penguin Books and It’s Nice That. 

Vicky recently launched Mean Mail – a luxury stationery brand and antidote to the saccharine greeting card industry. The cards are inspired by the way best friends talk to each other and the Oscar Wilde quote “True friends stab you in the front.” Since launching, Mean Mail has been stocked in Liberty and Colette, achieved press in magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Elle and Riposte and was the winner of Cosmopolitan magazine’s first Self Made Summit. 

Zeze Oriaikhi-Sao is the founder of Malée, a range of premium fragrance and body care products made with 100% natural active ingredients.

At the height of the recession in 2009, at just 24-years-old, and unemployed despite having two degrees, Zeze moved to South Africa. The country inspired her vision for a cosmetics range that drew from African beauty rituals. On her return, she decided to use her passion for all things natural and created cosmetics brand Malée, teaming-up with leading cosmetic chemists and perfumers to create a range that reflects her own wanderlust.

Pip Jamieson is the Founder of The Dots – a LinkedIn challenger designed around the networking needs of creators. Born out of a passion to make the creative industries more productive, open and diverse, Pip launched the platform in the UK in 2014.

The idea behind The Dots was born while Jamieson was head of marketing at MTV based in Australia and New Zealand. “As with most creative businesses, the easiest way for us to find full-time and freelance resource at MTV was through word-of-mouth, but the result was a lack of diversity in thinking, skills and background,”

Jamieson wanted to change that. So she decided to ditch her dream job as an MTV executive to become an entrepreneur. Not only had her time at MTV showed there was a genuine space in the marketplace for a digital destination where people could showcase their work more visually to those looking for creative talent, but it gave her many of the skills she needed to run a business.

Lola Hoad one girl band

Lola Hoad is a creative coach, writer and podcaster, as well as the founder of One Girl Band. She started her first business, a paper goods studio called LH design in 2014 after a redundancy from a graphic design role and realising she was going to have to create the career she wanted. OGB started a year later in a bid to quench the feelings of loneliness and isolation that comes with working for and by yourself, and they now have a huge online and offline community as well as a female-only coworking space in Brighton.
