Working in the great outdoors is a dream for many women, so if you’ve been inspired by flower-filled cover, or our Work Life feature on the manager of Chelsea Flower Show, book a ticket for the next Stylist Network event, How to Grow your First Million, on 2 July.

We’ve assembled an unbeatable panel of female entrepreneurs to share their tips and tricks for running a successful ‘outdoor’ business. We will be joined by Nikki Tibbles, founder of luxury florist Wild At Heart who counts Burberry, Gucci and Chanel among her clients; and Romy Fraser, who founded Neal’s Yard Remedies in 1981, and sold it in 2005 to buy a farm in Devon and work full time on developing and selling natural herbal remedies (she’s still heavily involved with Neal’s yard, acting as a consultant and helping with product development).

We will also be joined by Isabelle Palmer, founder of the Balcony Gardener, an online retailer specialising in DIY window boxes, and Kate Gould, blogger and founder of award-winning garden design firm Kate Gould Gardens.

Last but not least, Stylist’s very own business ambassador Sophie Cornish, the founder of, will give a brief presentation on how to network effectively, a brilliant tool no matter what business you want to build.

An evening of two halves, you’ll get to hear how our panellists hit the big time before networking with them and other like-minded women. The natural sector is one dominated by women (we make up 94% of the workforce) so whatever your business idea, you’ll be in good company.

It’s not often you get to pick the brains of four titans of industry so if you want to make your business dreams a reality, put 2 July in your diary today and book your ticket at
