Nikki Hesford

From teenage mum to successful entrepreneur

From leaving home at sixteen whilst still at school, to teen single mum at seventeen before climbing an ambitious ladder into a multiple award-winning businesswoman in ten years, Nikki Hesford has been on an action-packed journey.

Appearing on Dragon's Den in 2011, she later received substantial private investment for her fashion brand producing clothing and lingerie for busty young ladies. This led to the re-shoring of her manufacturing from China to the UK in 2012. Now owning and running a small factory in Preston, Nikki Hesford is the real Carla Connor!

Nikki is available to speak on teen pregnancy and her business achievements with her frank, down to earth, Northern style that has made her a popular speaker at many events around the UK and a regular commentator in the media.
