Trudi Bubb

My professional journey starts 28 years ago.

My philosophy......"If you are willing to change, you can achieve the things you have always dreamed of".

My career was not without struggle as at the age of 18 I lost my only brother in a road traffic accident.  He was 16 years old and at that time living on a remote farm in the Cotswolds I decided to take time out of my career to look after my family. 

In 1985 I decided to join the Territorial Army on a part time basis joining 57 Signal Squadron and in 1987 transferred over into 104 Air Defence.  I quickly found promotion and became a leader within the team.  This experience enabled me to gain new friends, discipline myself and overcome tragedy at the same time.  In 1987 I took a leap of faith and moved away from home to take on a new challenge working for a Facilities Management Company in Cardiff as a Sales & Marketing Consultant gaining new business turning over £500,000 in my first year.

My approach in life has taken me on an extraordinary journey as fresh from the London Business School in 1990 I moved into a fast paced career, working for eight of  the top 50 FTSE companies, in banking, telecommunications and human resources. I had the six figure salary to match.  Having qualified in HR / Change Management and Project Management I was at the top of my career.

Then in 2009, facing many challenges within corporate life, I became unwell and I had to take a year out from working life dealing with a serious health issue that sapped my stamina.  Then in 2013 I was faced with a greater challenge a cancerous haemotoma.  The corner was turned when a colleague made me aware of health and well being products with aloe vera as the main ingredient.  I liked the products as they made me feel stronger - and then I became curious about the business behind the products. 

When an opportunity presented itself that would change my life - to run my own Management Consultancy, with a newly found entrepreneural spirit I grabbed the opportunity and set out to become the best that I could be, as the idea of going back to work – for myself this time – flourished, I knew I wanted to do something that was global, lucrative and with great potential to grow. I also wanted to have time to do things other than work – supporting my chosen charities and giving something back.

The rest is happy history. The great benefit of my business is that it has allowed me to balance my energies between work and family and I still have time to run the regional branch of a children's charity – and train to take part in The Clipper Round The World Yacht Race in 2015 - 2016.
