An Entrepreneur's Journey
Enterprise Week 2019 Event
Hear from the first female winner of The Apprentice since the show’s format change, Leah Totton’s career has gone from strength to strength since she was awarded a £250,000 investment by Lord Sugar on the BBC reality show.
Listen to the journey of one of the country's most accomplished entrepreneurs who has fought back against the stereotype and achieved a successful cosmetic business that is continuing to thrive.
Born in Northern Ireland, Leah’s ambition was clear to see from a young age. With an investment opportunity with business magnate Lord Sugar on offer for the winner of The Apprentice, Leah was an instant favourite with both the viewers and the people on the show with her academic record and superb business skills impressing Lord Sugar.
With there being lots of controversial issues surrounding cosmetic surgery, Leah has always ensured that the highest possible standards are practiced within her business. She has frequently spoken out regarding better regulation and improving industry standards.
Having been recently named as one of the top 10 entrepreneurs in the UK, Leah regularly contributes to the Evening Standard newspaper offering her invaluable advice on cosmetic issues. Due to the continuing success of her surgeries, it has meant that Leah does not need to spend all her time there which has led her to getting back into the medicine profession part-time.
Leah looks forward to travelling home to Northern Ireland share her entrepreneurial journey at the final Connect Networking Event of 2019.
