Co-Founder of A League of Her Own


Co-Founder of A League of Her Own

I'm an award-winning entrepreneur, and former blogger and journalist.  Together with fellow female founder Caroline Brealey, I launched A League of Her Own - an online learning platform and support network designed to encourage more women to start their own businesses.  I present regular classes in business and blogging at The Guardian.  I was a guest judge on The Apprentice in 2015.

In my spare time I am training for my first Ironman Triathlon and play roller derby.

Catch me @leagueofcharly on Instagram and Twitter, and check out the League @leagueofher.
