A conversation with Jo Malone - this Sunday


I love candles and home fragrances and particularly at this time of year when I want to wrap up warm, snuggle on the sofa and enjoy being at home. I've always aspired to own a Jo Malone candle, and one of her women's fragrances too, as it's a brand I've been inspired by and one I know many friends love too.

So the following event at Town Hall Birmingham, who I am a reviewer for, is something that fans of her should not miss...

Following the Grand Central branch opening last September, booksellers Foyles has collaborated with Town Hall Symphony Hall on major author events for autumn across both venues.

The inspirational British businesswoman Jo Malone, founder of Jo Malone London and Jo Loves will be speaking about her book My Story this Sunday, 16th October 2016, at Town Hall.

Jo Malone’s story will be of particular interest to those who know and love her much admired beauty and fashion products and those who are interested in hearing how she was able to create a global business from humble beginnings. Jo left school at fifteen and hit upon her idea for a creative business when she was working in Belgravia. She opened her first shop in 1994, went into Bergdorf Goodman in 1998 and, in 1999, sold out to Estée Lauder while continuing as its creative director.
“As much as this is a personal story of sheer determination and bloody-mindedness, it’s also an invaluable manual for any would-be entrepreneur”, Evening Standard review for My Story.


Jo Malone will be in conversation at Town Hall this Sunday - see here for tickets and more information.
