  • Huckletree 18 Finsbury Square London, England, EC2A 1BR United Kingdom (map)

The PowerWomen Chat is an event series about up close and personal conversations with leading women in entrepreneurship, business and investment.

Think about it as a late night show where we'll talk about on work, life and everything else.

Men are welcome. :)

Topic of the month:  Building A Million Pound Business

The Speakers

Renée Elliott, Founder of Planet Organic

Entrepreneur and organic pioneer Renée Elliott founded Planet Organic, the UK’s first organic supermarket, in 1995. Her mission is to promote health in the community. PlanetOrganic now has seven branches in London and turns over £24m in revenue per year.

As well as being a full-on mother to her 3 young children, Renée works part-time at Planet, lectures to budding entrepreneurs, mentors startups, teaches healthy baking and writes cookbooks.

Roberta Lucca, Co-Founder CEO of BOLDR. Co-Founder Board Director of Bossa Studios

Serial entrepreneur Roberta is unstoppable when it comes to driving change and creating businesses with disruptive tech. She was voted top 35 Women under 35 by Management Today, Top 30 Women in Games, and everywoman’s Entrepreneur of the Year finalist.

The vision of BOLDR, Roberta’s third venture, is to help everyone find purpose and live meaningfully in our chaotic world.

Their highly engaging AI-powered chatbot Coach (called Charlie) is currently available on Facebook Messenger to selective Alpha users. BOLDR collaborates with greatly experienced coaches from the US and UK, and uses Neuroscience and Machine Learning to make self-improvement convenient, fun and effective.

Previously, Roberta co-founded the BAFTA winner games company Bossa Studios, growing it into a multi-million-pound business. The studio launched successful cult-hit games like Surgeon Simulator, amongst many others that went viral given Bossa’s take on ingenious marketing campaigns.

Prior to entering the entrepreneurial world, Roberta spent 12 years creating and leading game-changing products at Nokia/Vertu, and the world’s second-largest commercial TV broadcaster, Globo TV.
