Meet our guest speakers
The Caprice we see today is less about fame, and all about being the best mother, business woman, and role model that she can be. Once one of the most photographed women in the world, she still effortlessly stylish and is a great advocate for women, proving you don’t need to lose your sense of style when becoming a mother, as she combines it with her new life as a mum-preneur – juggling the challenges of raising her two beautiful boys, Jax and Jett, with being very hands-on in every aspect of running her fashion and lifestyle brands, By Caprice from her West London offices.
In addition, she has become a well-regarded philanthropist, and patron of several charities, for which she has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds. She is also an inspiring speaker, who shares her vision, her passion and her drive for business success with diverse audiences around the world, ranging from university students to start-up entrepreneurs and more.
Whilst some may see her life as gilded, Caprice has had her fair share of hard times. Her success has been hard-won, and along the way, she has battled fertility issues, ill health, and public opinion, which allowed her to capitalise on her beauty, but mocked her ability to be a successful businesswoman. However, underneath the luminous beauty which made her famous, lies a core of steel. All the challenges she has faced, both personal and professional, were met with iron-clad determination to beat the odds, and her reinvention as a savvy businesswoman and a fabulous mother has been achieved through grit, determination, and a burning desire to be the very best Caprice that she can be.
