C&C Search Passion Project

When historians look back at 2018, they will say it was the Year of the Woman; a moment when powerful women started taking charge.

Powerful women have built businesses, created political accords, fostered change, and stood up for the rights of the oppressed, winning awards and accolades in the process.

In short, these powerful, motivational, and inspirational women are here to help to help you to find your best you!

On Tuesday 5th June we held our annual Passion Project event at London’s coolest blow dry salon Duck & Dry

We want to hold up women in business who can excite and inspire other women looking for life or business hacks from role models.

The aim is to pique curiosity in others and spur energy for personal, career or business development.

We are all about fostering well-being by doing something that lights others up.

Our event was sponsored by an incredible array of brands that we have worked with, some of course are female founded businesses!

A huge thank you to Elemis, Potage, Ape Snacks, The Allegory, Nutmad, Duck & Dry, Wick & Tallow, Cakedrop, Fuse Tea & Player Bakes.
