At this event, delegates will enjoy a hot beverage on arrival, an excellent networking environment, as well as ample inspiration as we hear Rachels's story along with a Q&A at the end of the session.

While living in Paris as part of her English and French degree, Rachel Hanretty learned how to make delectable macarons and on her return decided that these edible jewels would be her bread and butter. However, it was only after working at Women’s Enterprise Scotland where she had met many an inspirational woman that she decided to really go for it. Starting at farmer’s markets, Rachel now runs a manufacturing unit where her team make up to 6-10,000 macarons a week to send them all across the UK delivering a little bit of Paris wherever she goes. This is the birth story of Mademoiselle Macaron.
