In light of International Women’s Day on Monday 8th March, we decided it was a good time to introduce you to the women working at Noble Macmillan. Many of you will in fact have spoken with us before as it is Hannah and me, Mia, who answer your calls and hope to help you with all your luxury leather goods queries and desires.
Hannah first started at Noble Macmillan when she was 14, doing the Christmas packing. She returned every year and has always loved the company and its products. Having studied Classics at Newcastle University, Hannah had a few other jobs since leaving university before coming back to the business full time to run their marketing and product development for the last four years.
I started working at Noble Macmillan in September having just finished my degree in Spanish and History of Art at Edinburgh University earlier in the same year. My role is Marketing Assistant, I keep you updated with new products and offers via email throughout the year as well as hopefully providing you with some inspiring content here on our blog. However I think Hannah and I would both agree that a great perk of working within a small team is the ability to turn our hands to all aspects of the company - whether it be printing, packing and shipping the orders, working with customers to create bespoke items, or working together to come up with exciting new products.
Ahead of International Women’s Day, we have had the pleasure of really thinking about the women who inspire us. Of course, there are many… However, after some time to reflect we each thought of an individual whose accomplishments and values we have found truly inspiring. We came up with Holly Tucker MBE and Jo Malone CBE, both of whom are incredible entrepreneurs. Holly founded Notonthehighstreet and now leads Holly&Co - a small business community supporting other budding entrepreneurs to build their businesses doing what they love. And within this community she hosts an excellent Podcast ‘Conversations of Inspiration’. Meanwhile, Jo Malone’s story is one I first came across listening to her interview with Kirsty Young on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs - and felt utterly moved by her journey to becoming a well-established household name. So, in the spirit of International Women’s Day, I first highly recommend that you listen to both Holly and Jo in the podcasts mentioned, and then finally please think about the women that inspire you to spread the word!
