In their own words

Philippa was a mentor to my luxury chess business during its first year of operation. We were introduced through the UCL Advances scheme and I have been delighted with her commitment and input. Philippa takes a considered and insightful approach in challenging my assumptions, making relevant suggestions and offering assistance. Taking an independent /non chess player’s view, Philippa has helped me define my market more precisely, identifying key sub-segments and how to best approach each of them. I would highly recommend her to any growing business.
