Meet Our Speakers 

Keisha Ehigie is a Nigerian-Jamaican mum who noticed that her young daughter was developing self-esteem issues when she couldn’t see characters that looked like her, or reflected her reality, in the story books she was reading. She did her own research and discovered that only 2% of UK children’s books had a Black main character.

So, she started Imagine Me Stories, a monthly subscription box which seeks to empower children by providing books with Black main characters and Black history/African activities. Through the box she makes it easy for parents and teachers to discover amazing black children's books and learn all about important trailblazers in the black community.

Helen Mitchell is a scent obsessed candle maker who wants to share the amazing feeling from simply lighting a beautifully fragranced candle in your home, evoking memories and helping find that moment of calm in today’s world.
Her luxury candle subscription offers a box full of gorgeousness every month in the form of one large 250g vintage style scented cut glass candles along with a mini 100g version. 2 different scents are received every month and subscribers are the first to try new fragrance launches. Each box also includes a lovely surprise from another independent business. These boxes were launched in August 2020 and continue to receive wonderful feedback from customers.  

Lauren Prentice has run subscription based businesses for a number of years. Having run a hugely popular theatre membership, most recently gaining over 600 new members within less than 24 hours Lauren is no stranger to the subscription business model. When covid hit in 2020 and all of the theatres closed, Lauren explored the subscription box market knowing that it was about to boom in the UK. She launched The Business Box and the Nutritional Ninjas Bake Box and has grown to a combined 1000 subscribers in 6 months. Lauren is passionate about helping other women in business launch subscription boxes.
