"It has been inspiring to go on a journey with so many talented business women. It has given me the nudge I needed to really think about the direction I want to go in, and I always leave Mothers Meetings buzzing with ideas. I’m not nearly as far along in the journey as others, but it hasn’t mattered - it’s the first time in a long time that I’ve had confidence to explore my ideas and been given new skills to do that. The generosity of everyone in the room is amazing, and I think places of work and learning should all be a bit more like MM Biz Academy - it’s a safe place to learn, grow and make connections! Thank you!"

Jenny Scott

Jenny Scott is a recognised motivating influence as the Founder of Mothers Meeting – a leading network for women in the UK which inspires and supports an audience of over 50K women with events, content, and good old face to face and screen to screen interaction. MM has been referred to as a new breed of company and an agency with attitude which connects global brands to a vast network of influential and highly engaged women (who happen to be mothers) in London and the UK.

Over the past 6 years Jenny has grown a fierce following of thousands of tastemakers, professionals and influencers around the world from Fashion Editors, Actresses, Architects, Film Directors, Stylists and Journalists as well as business, tech and retail leaders … the list is endless.

As a successful Creative Director and Graphic Designer, Jenny decided to initiate and realise a desire to have a hip and honest place for women of all backgrounds to connect. Her no nonsense but sincere approach is reflected in her book: “How to be a Hip Mama without losing your cool” and this ‘Mama Manual’ and regular MM content (straight from the heart) is relied upon by her growing network who engage the moment she clicks post/publish.

Jenny is constantly creating content that is exciting, relevant and different to what is already on offer, and this proven record and unique ability to attract and connect with exactly the kind of audience she is after is why she attracts global brands; Soho House, Nike, Liberty London, MTV, Microsoft and Netflix, all of whom wish to work with her and engage with her extensive network.

"The collective energy of these power mamas is a force to be reckoned with. They're bold. They're brave. They're infectious."

"Mothers Meetings was a game-changer for me. I remember the first time I went to one during my second Maternity Leave. Though I was nervous to begin with I felt elated. I had finally found my tribe: a group of Mums who were trying to navigate Motherhood whilst clinging on to their own identity. Since then it’s given me a great network, amazing friends and tons of inspiration."
