About Haylee

Originally from New Zealand, and now living and working in the UK, I’m an entrepreneur with 12+ years experience in creating sustainable business growth, for my own startups and as a manager and director at multi-million pound organisations.

As a founder, I’ve built a number of my own businesses from the ground up. Like PamperPad.com founded in 2014, and now with over 8000 members, a trusted resource for consumers and professionals in the beauty and wellness sector. You can find out about my current projects below.

As an investor, I love to help businesses thrive to their full potential. My real passion is sharing what I’ve learned about building a successful business – as a speaker and as a mentor to up new startups.

My hands-on experience is backed up by a postgraduate degree in Applied Business Management from Warwick University, rated one of the world’s best Business Schools by the FT, the Economist and the Guardian.
