• Keynote speaker announced for Leaders of the Future Conference

        • BOSS has announced that Julianne Ponan will be a keynote speaker at the Leaders of the Future Conference on Friday 8th March.

          Having suffered from anaphylaxis since she was two, Julianne launched a range of 'free from' foods with good nutrition. At just 22 years old she acquired Creative Nature, a brand struggling with heavy losses, turned it around into profit within 18-months, raised the brand's profile and launched new lines with only 2 members of staff.

          Julianne is a very successful entrepreneur, which is reflected in her accolades including being the youngest person ever to win The Guardian Leader of the Year, the youngest woman to win the NatWest Everywoman Award, for most inspirational woman running a business which has been trading for two years, as well as winning SME Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

          In her spare time, Julianne is also a mentor for Virgin StartUp, helping young entrepreneurs achieve their goals.
