Anita Roddick

The British Library

By Heather 10 years ago

We were lucky enough to get chosen to "Ask an Expert" at The British Library a few years ago. I met the late Anita Roddick who founded The Body Shop. She was an inspiration to me and many many others. She kept in touch with me at Wiggly Wigglers until her death, and it was good to have the opportunity to pop into the British Library and say thank you. You can see a video of our story as they have chosen us as March 09 case study.  
While I was there I checked out some industry reports and looked up reports on e-commerce and our competition. A really good resource for SME's.

Anita Roddick

Anita Roddick died tonight aged 64
She was an inspiration to many - myself included. I was lucky enough to get to talk to her at the British Library last year where she had given of her time to mentor women entrepeneurs. She is a Wiggly customer and said how much she loved lots of the products (but that indeed our t'shirts are crap!) I was struck by her direct no nonsense approach, and her passion and enthusiasm. A real hero in my book.
