Describe what your company does in 2 sentences.
We bring the sophistication and elegance of high tea to tea. We specialise in the high tea set up at your chosen venue.

What is the first thing you do every morning?
Give thanks to God for allowing me to explore my full potential, for helping me believe in myself and for breaking all boundaries.

What is the best business advice you ever received?
Invest in yourself and network intensively. People don’t buy from adverts, they buy from people. So in order to build your business, you have to work on building relationships.

Who would be your top three people to invite to dinner? Think celebrities, historical figures, whoever you like!

1. Definitely my mum
2. Malala Yousafzai for her impressive dedication to inspiring women to educate themselves
3. Anne Wilson, the wealth chef

If you were a crayon, what colour would you be and why?
Purple, it’s my favourite colour. It is traditionally associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power, and ambition. In other words, the finer things in life, just like High tea

What is your favourite place on Earth and why?
Really? Gosh….it’s definitely in the arms of my ever supportive husband. Whereever we are, as long as we are together. It’s my happy place

Where do you see yourself in five year’s time?
As the director of a very successful brand, High Tea Tie Tea. Apart from a mobile High Tea Party Service, I would love to diversify the product as the needs of the market changes. I would love to have a High Tea “Business lounge” based in a strategic location where people can come to enjoy high tea while closing off important business deals. As more people are opting for freelance careers, and are not based in their offices for the most part of the day, I would like “High Tea Tie Tea” to be the place to meet for business meetings and networking

Tell us one random thing that few people know about you.
Although many of my friends think I am this active superwoman juggling motherhood, studying and the business, my favourite past time is bingeing on junkfood in my pj’s. I could do this all day, every day.
