Nell started her career on Wall Street working in finance before discovering that she could marry her love of traditional trappings or ‘women’s work’ to build a fiscally successful and internationally adored business. As Nell says, “why can’t I care about my 401K and my monogram at the same time? Why can’t I really love pink and also get a promotion ahead of any other man”. In this inspiring conversation, we learn about how to build a company culture that results in staff retention and how to use empathy, and clear communication to create lasting and meaningful relationships with your suppliers to prepare for downturns. Nell is also a Mother to 3 young children including twins so we deep dive the realities of being a working Mother with 50 staff.
