Lucy Nicholson, founder of Lucy Maggie Designs, joined as a panellist as part of The Women’s Organisation’s Business Start-Up Conference, supported by the Liverpool Business & IP Centre, on Wednesday 4th August, to share her experiences of starting up her own business. She was joined by Jeanne Fairbrother of Jeanne Fairbrother Associates, a business that offers a whole school approach to health and safety.

During the 90-minute online event, which was hosted by Cynthia Ajayi, Media and Management Executive at the Women’s Organisation, and Geraldine Fuller, Business Engagement and Marketing Manager and the Business & IP Centre, Lucy described her journey the online attendees, who were then invited to ask questions. Lucy was inundated with questions from the many entrepreneurs, some of whom had been following Lucy on social media since she first started running Lucy Maggie Designs.  

“Everyone was so friendly, and I felt very relaxed and ended up having a really great time sharing my experiences with individuals who were just starting their own business start-up journeys.” – Lucy Nicholson, Lucy Maggie Designs

Lucy said: “The experience was amazing. I am an introvert at heart, so I was quite apprehensive in the lead-up to the conference, but I needn’t have been. Everyone was so friendly, and I felt very relaxed and ended up having a really great time sharing my experiences with individuals who were just starting their own business start-up journeys. It’s fantastic to be at the stage in my career when I am able to offer advice to others – thought I certainly still have a lot to learn myself!”
