The Inspirational Sian Sutherland – Founder of MIO Skincare
Sian is a passionate and driven entrepreneur who at the age of 26 opened a London restaurant before creating her own design agency focused on two big passions of hers; beverages and beauty. As her life progressed and she started a family she couldn’t find any products aimed purely at pregnant women so created her own for personal use. Along the way friends and family came to ask if they could have some and the penny dropped, these products were meeting an unmet need; the idea for Mama Mio was born.
Hear how Sian raised finance and over the last eight years has used word of mouth marketing to grow Mio into a global brand combining passion, an intrinsic understanding of women and an uncanny knack to keep spotting gaps in the very crowded cosmetics market that the bigger brands miss or shy away from. It’s a fascinating interview packed with advice and insights as to how to successfully build a business from scratch.
Her passion is to better meet women’s needs and she is motivated by positive, personal customer feedback.
