Talented Ladies Club was launched on 30 April 2013. It was started by Hannah Martin and Kary Fisher – two friends who met when pregnant with their daughters.
Hannah (a freelance copywriter) and Kary (a freelance designer) were inspired to create Talented Ladies Club after recognising that many of their friends struggled with the same issues in balancing their ambitions and need to work, with the very real restrictions of being a mum.
Hannah and Kary believe that it is possible to enjoy a fulfilling career on your own terms after having children – you just need to look at your passions, skills and opportunities in a different way, and be more creative and braver about how you make it happen.
And that’s just what they are helping women around the UK (and the world) do through Talented Ladies Club.
Co-founder and Editorial Director Hannah Martin is a mum of two and an award-winning copywriter with 20 years’ experience working for some of the world’s biggest advertising agencies and brands (as well as a few small ones).
