Business Development Partner, Special Event Stylist, Social and Business Etiquette coach.
Jenny is a serial entrepreneur with her previous businesses spanning Training, PR & Corporate Communications, Executive Search to Board Level and HR Support Consultancy. Her consultancy reputation is built upon her ability to create imaginative, effective solutions to complex people-related challenges. Jenny has an impressive client list which includes The BBC, Apple and Axa PPP. She believes the route to exceeding client expectation in any business lies in fully understanding their needs and the psychology behind their decision-making process.
Jenny trained with Isobel in both women’s and men’s styling to facilitate her change of career 6 years ago. Since then, she has gained an enviable reputation in styling for the British Social Calendar, Weddings and Corporate Events. Her business has been gained by referral and personal recommendation based on her continuing ability to exceed client expectation.
Jenny has always enjoyed the British Social Season and as a keen former competitive equestrienne herself, particularly enjoys horse racing, dressage, eventing and polo. She has experienced the thrill of racehorse ownership, has lunched at The Jockey Club and visited The National Stud in Newmarket. She has also trained and competed on her own horses in eventing and dressage. She has been a member of The Royal Enclosure at Ascot and the Richmond Enclosure at Goodwood for many years. Jenny has also attended many corporate events as a guest, hostess and organiser. She certainly knows the hidden power of a glass of champagne accompanied by a decent canapé and has extensive experience of engaging with people on a social and business level.
A firm believer in the power of personal branding/image, Jenny is proof that decisions are made within seconds of seeing an individual based purely on their appearance. She was interviewed and appeared on the BBC News and has been photographed extensively by the press with her picture appearing in both national and international publications. She was featured in an advertising campaign for Dubai Racing on Channel 4 and in the opening sequence of Gok Wan’s ‘How to look good naked’ TV series. She has been interviewed by Vogue and The Telegraph and her comments on the importance of maintaining standards of dress for membership enclosures were broadcast on radio. She has won numerous Best Dressed Lady competitions without even being aware of their existence at the time and feels it has been a lovely by-product of being elegantly dressed for a British occasion. She has had the pleasure of being both the recipient and presenter of many awards and prizes over the years relating to best dressed (people!) and turned-out (horses!).
Jenny has a keen eye for detail and loves a Statement hat! Her clients have also appeared in the press as a direct result of working with Jenny.
Jenny’s glamourous lifestyle ensured invitations to The Races at Royal Ascot, Glorious Goodwood Festival, Cheltenham Festival and The Derby. In addition she accepted hospitality invitations to Gold Cup Polo at Cowdray and Guards together with the Burghley and Badminton Horse Trials, showjumping and dressage at Hickstead plus Henley Royal Regatta, Cowes Week, Wimbledon, Glyndebourne, Grange Park Opera, Chelsea Flower Show, Lords Cricket, The Game Fair and The New Forest Show.
Jenny loves to laugh (and dance!) and has certainly lived life to the full. In recent years, however, she has faced a battle with cancer, and so believes that the power of her wardrobe was a key element in seeing her through challenging times together with the psychology she learned when training in dressage.
She now feels that time is of the essence and that she is at the age and stage where she would like to bring the benefit of her considerable experience to a wider audience. Jenny is delighted to be collaborating with Isobel at The Stylist London in a quest to help others to look, feel and project the best version of themselves at any special event.
On a final note, Jenny has always loved horses and believes that the psychology of working with them teaches us much about ourselves ... she Evented in her 20’s and competed in affiliated dressage competitions with British Dressage on a beautiful Lusitano stallion she imported from Portugal. She was taught about the importance of elegance in dressage and that looking good helps horse and rider to feel good. She also believes that extends to people too ... at any age and stage in their lives.
