As seen in…

I’ve been very fortunate to be interviewed for, or featured in, some wonderful press including Forbes, The Daily Telegraph, The Evening Standard, The i, The Metro, BBC Surrey Radio and Country Living magazine.

Topics I can chat about with your audience include:

  • Baking bread at home – I’m passionate about simplifying bread making and encouraging everyone to have a go baking bread at home. I can share simple recipes, answer questions and give my top tips if you’re just getting started.
  • How to start, build and grow a food business from home, especially one focused on baked goods.
  • How to build an engaged and active online community around your business and begin to work with that community as customers.
  • The challenges and opportunities of running your own business from home.
