This month was our first proper meeting as The Alexandra WI and what a meeting it was!
First, the members were updated about the proposed Foundling Museum Trip to be organised early next year, the progress of our Knitting sub-group and the December Christmas Party. Maggie also gave us an idea of the speakers that are lined up for 2011 and it sounds like it should be an exciting one!
The main event of the evening however was a talk given by the founder of Shea Alchemy, Sally. She discussed the motivations she had for setting up the natural skincare company, how she developed her business and gave our members tips for business success. She also gave us some of her indepth knowledge of the cosmetics industry and the ingredients that make up many of our face creams!
It was great to hear from a local woman making such a success of her business idea and it was lovely to test all the natural pampering products.
