Sally Maier-Yip, Founder & MD, 11K Consulting Ltd
After working in various PR agencies in Hong Kong, Singapore and London for a decade, I decided to quit my comfortable and well-paying job in a British PR agency, and started my own PR agency, 11K Consulting, in London, in February 2015. 11K Consulting is my second company which started after a complete failure of my first business with a business partner. In retrospect, the fiasco of my first business was a real blessing in disguise. The difficult experience made me realise that I really have all the soft and hard skills I need to run my business, and achieve much more.
11K Consulting has a very niche positioning in the market which sets us apart from our competitors and explained our success. We only do PR and digital marketing between UK and China/Asia. We help Western brands commutate their brands in Far East, and vice versa. We have clients in both UK and Asia and they are in the luxury, retail, education, and tourism sectors. In 2016, we were nominated for the New Consultancy of the Year by PRCA Dare Awards, the most prestigious industry award in the UK and across Europe.
Our single dream for 11K Consulting is to become THE go-to, trusted PR agency for ambitious companies, either start-ups or established brands, who want to be successful in the UK or China/Asia. I believe we are on a good track walking towards our achievable end-goal.

Heidy Rehman - Founder & MD, Rose & Willard Fashion House
I launched Rose & Willard is September 2014. I decided to set the business up after realising that there was a gap in the market for professional womenswear. I also wanted my brand to ethical (there is no garment worker exploitation anywhere along our value chain), eco- friendly (our carbon footprint is kept to an absolute minimum) and to support British manufacturing (we make all our product at our London studio). Our aim is to make an enduring luxury product that conveys both professionalism and femininity at an affordable price.
Central to the ethos of our brand is empowerment (underlined by the meaning of our name – Feminine & Bold). We promote body positivity and diversity through our imagery and messages. We have featured ‘non-model models’ in our campaigns and will only work with models who are willing to eat with us.
In tandem with our strategy I speak at events on body positivity, Imposter Syndrome, equal pay, etc. I also write for a number of media outlets including the Huffington Post, the Guardian, i and others. I also write on broader industry and economic topics.
We are not afraid to be a brand of action and to speak up for what we believe. Indeed we believe this also reflects who our customer is – women who are Feminine & Bold.
