I recently hosted Leapfrog’s first event, and did so alongside three inspiring women: Renée Elliott (founder of Planet Organic), Gillian Ridley-Whittle (founder of Peachaus) and Anna-Marie Gough (breathwork/cold water immersion coach).
We held an intimate discussion on how we choose to work and run our companies, in a way that brings balance and fuels collaboration. We all crave connection, calm and kindness in this frenzied modern world, so we shared our priorities. It’s all about people, planet and purpose over profit.
I explained that what propels Leapfrog forward is knowing we make a difference to our customers’ immunity and sleep. I know because you tell me personally, and for that connection I am grateful.

What Our Panellists Said
“I questioned the industry I was in (fast fashion) and I experienced burnout in a stressful culture that was toxic, cruel and driven by profit at any cost to people and planet. I wanted a brand that was kind and connected people, and to do clothing respectfully and in the right way.” Gillian Ridley-Whittle - founder of Peachaus
“When Renée (Elliott) became my mentor she asked me what value my business would add, and I thought of all the mums like me at the school gates who couldn’t afford the time to get sick. I said: 'I want to help people stay well with something that’s natural and really works.'” Stephanie Drax - founder of Leapfrog Remedies
“When we’re breathing through our mouths we are not protecting ourselves - breathing through our noses gives our nervous system stability. This body is our home; not the bricks and mortar, it’s our flesh and bone. It’s been the greatest gift for me to help people connect inward.” Anna-Marie Gough - Breathwork Coach
