Michelle is one the UK’s most celebrated entrepreneurs. From her humble beginnings in the East End of Glasgow, Michelle is the founder of Ultimo Lingerie, a brand she propelled to the UK’s leading lingerie brand for two decades.
With ventures reaching as wide as interiors, jewellery, property and tech, Michelle has become one the world’s leading public speakers. Her success was formally recognised when she was awarded the role of Start-Up Business Tsar by former Prime Minister David Cameron in 2015. In the same year, she was appointed a life time peerage as a Baroness in the House of Lords.
Despite growing up with few resources and leaving school with no qualifications, Michelle shows that no matter where you come from, you can become anything you want to be.
