Episode 19. Holly Tucker MBE On Her Phenomenal Career Journey, Job Titles And The Art Of Gifting

Welcome back to a brand new season of Let’s Discuss!

This season we are talking ALL things festive - from gifting, to wellbeing, party dressing and so much more. This season we have the absolute pleasure of being joined by a host of very special guests. Each one is as inspiring as the other, and we can’t wait for you to get to know them all!

We are kick starting Season 3 with none other than Holly Tucker MBE, co-founder of Not On The High Street, and the incredible Holly & Co. 

Holly is one of the most pioneering businesswomen in the world today, and we are over the moon to have been able to sit down with her (at the table she dreamt up Not On The High Street on - no less!) to discuss her career journey, thoughtful gifting and why it’s important for us to reassess the vocabulary we use in life and in business. 

This is a truly inspiring interview, and we hope that it will help you to get into the swing of the festive season, your career ambitions and those all important holiday gifts!

A quick audio note: as we were recording at the lovely Holly & Co you may hear some background noise. We hope you’ll enjoy the buzz of the cafe (and that it’s not too distracting!).


Thank you to our wonderful sponsors this season: House of Fraser and Birchbox
