Entrepreneurs share their tips

Stylist's latest network event at London's May Fair hotel in November was inspired by a growing movement among women who use maternity leave to take stock of their current career and begin a new venture.

Speakers included four women who launched successful businesses while on maternity leave: Mumsnet co-founder Justine Roberts, who created the website in 2000 after having twins, Bethany Eaton, creator of Co Yo yoghurt, Nikki Jackson, owner of vintage bridal boutique The White Closet and Amanda Sharkey who founded maternity sports range Nordic Mama.

If you have a business idea fermenting away or you’re not convinced you’ll go back to your current job after having children – or if you’d just love to hear inspiring stories from savvy entrepreneurs – check out highlights from the evening in our video round-up, below.

Stay tuned on our Stylist network page for career tips and advice, plus news on upcoming events.
